    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Telerik full-time

    Pros

    Great professionals work here. A lot of things to learn from *most* of the guys here. Lots of social activities, however, some of them tend to be maintained just enough to say that they exist. Paying is OK (but not as stated "a company that gives as much as it can, not as much as it can get away with" -- not even close.). Bonuses + 13th salary.

    Cons

    Everything negative that a typical large company has -- telerik has it also. Not even close to entrepreneurship as it is often described. Lot of the people here got promoted too fast and nowadays this is a huge "con" in my eyes -- newer people tend to grow much slower. And I'm not talking about high management people that have always been around the company -- I'm talking for junior developers becoming seinor/team...

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest to your employees. And stop blindly believing to people that have become Team Leads maybe a little bit too fast. Or at least monitor them much more intensely. It's a rare case but some of them don't do anything at all -- just pretend to be the bosses of everything -- which is quite untrue.

    Pros

    Good salaries, good benefits compared to other companies in Bulgaria, great culture and team spirit, frequent evaluations and bonus/salary adjustments (3/year)

    Cons

    Bad work-life balance, a very driven company where you are expected to be all-in and working as much as needed to do the job. Sometimes very political

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in

      I worked at Telerik

      Pros

      Nice people. They want to help. There is some room for growth if you work 16 + hrs a day.

      Cons

      Very long hours. Poorly run at times. Very poor communication. They know a lot about technology but don't always know how to apply that technology properly. No work/life balance at all.

      Advice to Management

      More accountability. Stream line processes.

        Great Benefits, good pay. The four founders of the company are amazing. Great culture. Interesting in the whole community around the company.

        Lack of good middle and senior managers (except the founders). Transition from Start up to Enterprise is not very smooth, lack of known procedures and management.
