    Pros

    Perfect to start your business and finance IT career
    Generous education and training incentive
    Great HMO package
    Opportunity to be assigned overseas
    Challenging responsibilities
    Great coaching approach (Objective driven)
    Excellent support/admin team
    Great, friendly, and bright colleagues
    Annual overseas event
    Opportunity for career shift from "Programmer" to "Consultant"
    Flat hierarchy
    Lots of "classy" external events

    Cons

    Tendency to be stuck in internal projects when there are no projects (Opportunity to gain exposure/knowledge in other technology)
    Company follows bell curve approach in rating employees
    Tendency to be assigned to different Modules every project with or without proper pre-training. Sometimes you'll have to learn on your own.
    Sometimes you'll have to do overtime work without pay. (Most probably, the cause is the previous point)

    Advice to Management

    Encourage colleagues to have training and use their education budget
    Coach-coachee: Do quarterly catch-up sessions to be more connected
    Adapt a new approach in rating employees
    It is expected that some project phases require employees to do overtime work, please compensate them properly, learn from experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Orbium (Warsaw (Poland)) in December-2013.

    Interview

    Took 3 days
    3 meetings - HR, Manager, Partner
    One basic test for logical thinking and code analysis.
    General, online test for me to take online at home during the weekend - english, math, iq test.
    They canceled and postponed one of the meetings when I was already at the door.
    Found that the HR people often were late for interviews. (Mostly when the meeting at 9am or similar).
