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

    Pros

    Good overall compenation if you are distinguished engeneer.

    Cons

    Some managers got their high positions only because they spent 10+ years in the company and very afraid to loose the position. That's why they try not to allow really ambitios people to play important roles. It's relevant at least for busness units.

    Advice to Management

    Take care how many awsome people left the company
