    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Mail.Ru Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Nice modern office with a lot of amenities and leisure zones - Challenging tasks and a (mostly) top-notch tech stack. - Gym, insurance, a lot of employee discounts, education compensation etc.

    Cons

    - Depending on the department you're working at, things may get a bit crunchy sometimes and you have to either 'make it or die trying', so to say.

    I worked at Mail.Ru Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - many nice people work here - good opportunity to start career in gamedev - good project management practices - great office, conditions and benefits

    Cons

    - The only aim of this company is to gain profit. It was clearly communicated by the top management many times. On a higher level nobody cares about the quality or value of the product the company puts out on a market. - A lot of miscommunication between the operation dept and internal studios. Live operation managers consider themselves as your product owners. Quality of their own work is very low though (e.g. marketing key-art, trailers). Marketing budget being bigger than production cost is okay.
