    Pros

    The benefits here are good. The company is on top and still on the rise. The management knows what they are doing and where they are going.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than average despite the good benefits. The future career plans of the individual is not particularly cared for.

    Pros

    Lots of interesting and cutting-edge projects are being worked on right now: this sums up to a very interesting and challenging work environment. Team work is excellent, training opportunities are plenty (even though we end up not having much time to actually go on training!), direct management is excellent in the sense that it actually listens to employee suggestions and acts upon it. Great team spirit.

    Cons

    Small things which add up, unfortunately:
    Raises are low, top management moves the date of salary reviews without notice (2 years in a row, 9 months of adjustments were lost), promotions are non-existent, payroll makes tons of mistakes which end up costing a lot. IT support is a joke.
