Pros

Almost zero politics
Job Stability
Senior Management is Ethical
A very competent CEO
The timings are generally ok
Decent year end bonuses

Cons

If you're committed to a stable job with very little growth prospects but decent pay and bonus, then this is the right place for you. For the more ambitious types and non-Eastern Europeans, look elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Company is a one man show. If the expectation is global growth and expansion then opportunities need to be extended to non E European employees as well.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits except vacation days.
    You don't have to worry about politics.
    Senior management is very competent.
    The Company is very efficiently managed and is almost a guaranteed net income generator. Therefore, the stability factor is a big plus plus.

    Cons

    Vacation days.
    Little to no flexibility allowed.
    Little to no growth potential for non-programming staff.
    Very little (if any) cross communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think the management needs any advice as far as the bottom line is concerned. The Company consistently generates good revenue and has a great handle on managing the major costs. As far as employee morale is concerned, not sure if this is considered important at all - so why bother advising?

    Doesn't Recommend
