    I worked at Visma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good location
    Team buildings in nice places
    Good equipments
    Great colleagues
    Excellent for starting in sw domain, because they have good processes.

    Cons

    It all depends on each team manager. If you are lucky, it's a cosy job: no challenges, but also not many opportunities to grow.
    The rest, are very stressful, throwing blame, and all seems to be an egos fight. I've seen lots of good people getting fired for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team members. Although most will not dare to complain about the real issues. Look closer in teams where people are leaving constantly.

    I have been working at Visma full-time

    Pros

    All of the technical staff is either very knowledgeable or interested to learn. Career opportunities are there if you grab them. Flexible and stable employer.

    Cons

    Short-term thinking. Parts of management does not understand software development and is mostly interested in brownnosing other management. Most of the organization is not agile. Does not value high performers. Extremely distributed organization (near-shoring), which comes with its own problems.

    Advice to Management

    Replace management that does not understand software development. Compensate better to motivate and retain high performers.

    Really young colleagues and daily work is pleasure. Visma does not encourage to work overtimes so it is really easy to balance between your social and work life.

    Cons

    Visma in Lithuania does not have sales or their own products, so mostly all products that will be developed here in Lithuania will not be used by lithuanians (so developer will not use his own product)
