    Pros

    One of the best places to work - profesionally speaking,with lots of new technologies and methods . Management guidance is superb.

    Cons

    very pressing and therefore not enough time for interacting with my family and friends. As such it needs to be considered as a non-permanent place to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very professional but it would be a change for the best - if the tendency will be more attentive to the workers' needs

    Approves of CEO
