    - amenable to work-from-home
    - benefits are great

    Cons

    - high-stress weeks are not unusual
    - "perks" aren't too abundant; none of the standard Silicon Valley perks arms race here

    I worked at Avangate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Warm, fun and relaxed environment, challenging business but colleagues are very helpful, overall I enjoyed working there, management tries to keep a close and warm relationship with employees, good salary and standard benefits (access to a private clinic, free lunch at building cafeteria)

    Cons

    Code base is old and pretty hard to understand but some of the seniors there know the platform very well and can help new team members to some extent. Hard to apply best practices like unit testing and/or design patterns. If you feel comfortable with procedural code this place is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Avangate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many things I like:people, my job, atmosphere, benefits, the office... it feels many times like being part of a big family. And the best part is that I have a good work-life balance, which is important for me.

    Cons

    Things got constantly improved, so for the moment I can't think of anything that I dislike. Lots of good changes happened this year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to everyone in your team, and make sure your performers are better and better rewarded
