    I worked at Actiance full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have worked for 4 plus years and had the great time learning up new technologies. It’s a small fast growing product based company with good work culture. Each individual’s hard work is recognized and rewarded accordingly. Employees are very well paid. Managers are friendly and always open to discussions or any kind of suggestions.

    Team management is good and team members are given responsibilities to take up new things and handle on their own. They are as well motivated when necessary.

    Flexible work timings. Company is located within the city which helps reduce travel time for most of them.

    Employees can have fun with well organized quarterly team outings and company outings, sports events..etc..

    Cons

    Company facilities and infrastructure can be still improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the same. Also, having frequent discussions with team members related to improvements/changes required in the team will definitely help in delivering an even more good quality product.

    Pros

    Biggest advantage is the technical depth & the exposure. Server side technologies fun to work with
    Some of the best guys in the industry to work with - Technically as well as the Leadership team
    Never a dull moment. Constant adoption of new technologies makes work exciting
    Company moving fast, growing very well into new areas & domains
    Some very senior architects hired recently, new architectural developments on the horizon
    Good co-ordination b/w Dev guys & the testers, Agile adoption has worked well for us

    Cons

    Priority shifts, some rapid releases - result of early market penetration into new domains

    Too many new initiatives coming up; makes it challenging for managers to balance juggling existing resources to meet current commitments and hiring new people for future work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create budgets & put in proactive measures to help better facilities, invest in tools & processes to improvise workflow management, intra-department communication

    Starting looking at stuff like TDD, White box Testing approaches to take quality to the next level

    Fast changing Unified Communications space makes brings unique engineering design and architecture problems... excellent for engineers
    Application layer protocols, Large data, high volume transaction processing, Web 2.0, enterprise scalability and reliability, very complex deployments

    Cons

    Can be a challenge because of being a niche market; things change very fast
    Decisions change often but for good reason (most often). Not doing them would lead to wasted effort; Needs the required attitude to stay abreast... otherwise can be overwhelming
