    I have been working at Hexagon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Decent pay - I feel valued - Great team - A lot of support - Progression opportunities - Supportive and understanding management

    Cons

    Since the software is so big and based on an old codebase, it can get pretty daunting when working with legacy stuff. There is a rigid code review process which some might not like. You can feel like you're making very little impact sometimes.

    I have been working at Hexagon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - They offer a brand new company car for personal use (will get changed every 3 years with a new one) - Company mobile (personal use as well) - Quarterly bonuses + 1 big bonus at the end of the year (based on company performance) - Very proficient atmosphere, if you have any problems your colleagues are at one phone call away and the chances are very high to find somebody that can help you - Little to no stress if you know your job - Flexible company

    Cons

    - Quite a lot of travelling (that's if you consider that a con) - You need to know you're job quite well and be passionate about it, also be willing to learn new things, if not, this is not the place for you (at least in the applications dept.)
