    I worked at MAQ Software full-time

    Pros

    Some great people are in the same boat as you in misery. The benefits are OK. The Microsoft side is amusing.

    Cons

    There is no joy or pride. The CEO gets on a soapbox whenever he can and consistently fails to practice what he preaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open the books and get a board.

    I worked at MAQ Software

    Pros

    Majority of the projects are from Microsoft. So you get to work on the same tools and technologies used at Microsoft. Good for freshers out of college.

    Cons

    High work pressure environment. Employees are expected to work 15-16 hours a day and dedicate their life upon joining this company. Zero work-life balance. No respect for employees. No company culture. High attrition as most employees get frustrated and leave. My advice to new hires is think twice, no think thrice before taking up an offer with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with dignity and respect, both the ones who work there and those who leave for better opportunities. Also please stop writing self reviews on this site. They will not help your reputation.

    I worked at MAQ Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros to mention... Everyone in the company is looking for other jobs

    Cons

    Long working hours(minimum 14 hours)
    No work life balance
    No growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If few things are not changed the day is not far when you will have to shut it. By now management should have realised that there is something wrong with the policy.

    Pros

    Good for freshers, lot to learn as fresher
    Certification is must

    Cons

    Very Long working Hours.
    Horrible work culture. Seniors and freshers are treat alike. Sometimes even frssher is asked to lead a project and lead/manager have to report to him
    Employees are treated as slaves
    Management does not support its employees at all. One of the reasons why the company is never growing the way actually should grow in a period of 10 yrs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No Advice, It can never change as they believe they are perfect.

    Pros

    All the developers are self-motivated and hard-working

    Cons

    Many many ...management is only for the name-sake ..very polluted culture..unsafe job and on top of that you have to like whatever garbage CEO thinks...and then they post fake positive reviews that our company is the best..my advice is do not join even if you have no other option..

    I have been working at MAQ Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will learn how to adjust with worst conditions

    Cons

    Lots and lots of cons are present and most of them already pointed out in previous reviews. Few cons which are not covered earlier, find them below
    1. Anytime they can introduce new policy without any reason. Recently they extended notice period from 1 month to 3 months. And that start effectively from the point of time email reached to employee inbox.
    They do not even give chance you to switch to different company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have one question to top management which they must answer their employees.
    What you want to do in this company and what you expect from the employees? They are working full day and night for you and you guys every day introduce new policies to make them depress. Is this right?
    You are running a company not a hostel. Introduce some logic in your actions.
    Though many people say this but it doesn't bother you. Company can flourish more if you don't do such things.
    I advice you to conduct an anonymous survey to check what your employee think about all this.
