    I worked at Transact full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good bonus, people are generally good to work with, great culture

    Cons

    Very slow moving company. Want to change but have no clue how to change. Basically they have an old tech stack and it isn't a place to grow your knowledge. It's a retirement home for technology! Far away from any modern concepts of flexible working, work from home etc.

    Advice to Management

    Try to adapt to changing times.
