What attributes are valued most by the employees? What is more important for you and for other developer after salary opportunities? What exactly you mean by career opportunities and self-realization? This is main attributes for all Ukrainian developers and this can be analyzed deeper in more detailed way by our companies and customers in future. Such statistics can be easily transformed to "companies of dream" for best programmers and engineers all over Ukraine.
