    I worked at aviya full-time

    Pros

    - good work environment
    - multiple opportunities
    - ok salary
    - hiring process is straightforward and not overcomplicated, company is easy to deal with. No unrealistic requirements or expectations. Overall, great opportunity.

    Cons

    not much, everything as expected . The only thing you should keep in mind is Aviya mainly provides manpower to other companies, there not that many internal projects. This is not necessarily a bad thing, just something to be aware of.
