    great place to settle down

    Software Engineer I (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    Prosthe work in the company is highly dependent on the team you are in. If you are lucky you get a good team and good work else u might only get backend jobs. the company is great place if you wanna go for higher studies as the flexibility they provide in work is amazing.

    Conslearning is very slow. and you dont get to work on many new things in a few things.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
