    Pros

    It's a small company so you can get to know all people pretty fast and can make the vital connection. One can move up pretty fast if they fit into the company culture.

    Cons

    Being a small company, if there are issues with the top/mid management people, one can suffer a lot due to alienation. what value few old timers bring to the table?

    Advice to Management

    Know who in the organization is adding real value to the bottom line and growth of the company. You have to infuse new local blood into the system.

  3. Good as Launch pad, but a dead weight for an experienced & ambitious swimmer....if you know what I mean...

    Pros

    For a fresher, this company is the best launch pad I have come across; but for a mid-level experienced professional--you may get stymied from the beginning.

    Cons

    --Typical tradition management approach with lots of favoritism and partiality.
    -- When comes to work appreciation you have to work more than 15 hrs work is required from your side to get recognition.
    -- No transparency in appraisal process.

    Advice to Management

    Should be more open to the employees to discuss their interests rather than superimposing with your own hand picked responsibilities that will get assigned to the employee.

    * Look for the big names they are working with.

    * Employee Satisfaction : What is that ?

    Advice to Management

    Employees are a part of you and not your slaves. The least you can do is listen to them. Try and retain the talent.

    Pros

    The management is very experienced and guides one in tough situations. Management interacts a lot with the development team members to see if everything is going okay.

    Cons

    Salaries are very poor, they pay at least 50% less than another company in the same field. There is no system for bonus and no other benefits except for normal insurance. Computers provided were out dated at least 4 years ago. The employees are not hardworking at all and most of the times getting the smallest things done takes an unbelievable amount of argument and efforts to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Please do something regarding the low salaries you pay, benefits and employee satisfaction index along with the slow computers that everyone uses.

    Pros

    Lots of Learnings and lots of work. Best for Workaholics.

    Cons

    No fixed working hours.. 12 to 14 hours of work everyday...
    One could be working on projects even if he or she does not have required skill set. and it gets worse, when management expects immediate results....

    Advice to Management

    Plan your projects in a better way. Employ sufficient resources for executing projects, instead of putting burden on your engineers. Employ Technical managers, who could understand at-least a bit of projects they are executing.

    At-last a bit of advice:
    1. Don't delegate: Do everything you can yourself to make things go faster.
    2. Don't get in the way if you're not adding value. Let the people actually doing the work talk to each other while you go do something else.
    3. Don't be a bureaucrat.
    4. Don't be biased. Just because someone is near or dear to you, "doesn't mean others do not work".
