    Pros

    pay is not bad. working hours is OK. good location.

    Cons

    1, You don't feel like a developer working there, just a typist. Micro management detailed to the level that you don't have to have a brain working there, two hands are enough.

    2, Cryptic culture. Developers are often given projects without knowing what's is really for.

    3, The culture is formed in such a way that people do not talk to each other, they sit at their desk eating their lunch quietly ... day after day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to money, try to be nice to you employees, do not just pretend to.
