    Pros

    Extremely flexible and chill (at least the project I'm working on). My previous project wasn't that good

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to change projects Salary increase is a joke if you don't get promoted. It's less than the inflation rate It become really boring to work on public sector projects once you been on few which Kainos mostly is dealing with

    Not what you think it is

    Pros

    The people on your team are very talented and fun to work with. Very talented and experienced engineers, ATLs, testers, and BAs.

    Cons

    Overwork you. Don't pay you your full salary when you leave. Instead, they deduct everything they need and cut your salary in half. Then proceed to tell you you'll get it in the next pay period. This does not make sense, as you no longer work their! Horrible progression. Doesn't matter if you achieve their illustrious (high) performance rating as it means nothing. Massively underpay you and lock promoted graduates into a ridiculously long notice period.
