    Pros

    Everything is planned (work/ training's) -> you find it easy to work here.

    Brainy Workforce - Recruitment is strong that each team member is cherry picked and from Premium Institutes / organizations. You find it excited & easy to work with them. Too helpful mates.

    Some of my ex-colleagues/ friends still believe that Sandvine use Proprietary tools - YOU ARE WRONG , everything is standardized and well equipped (far better R&D work than my previous organizations - cutting edge technology)

    Professional growth
    -Substantial responsibilities at an early stage of the career
    - Exposure to all aspects of delivery lifecycle and project management
    - Continuous learning
    Type of work
    - Exciting and challenging work
    - Exposure to the latest and varied technologies
    - Company culture (environment/culture/mindset)

    Transparency, lack of bureaucracy
    - Ownership and accountability
    - Autonomy (with seniority)

    Cons

    There can be learning pressure - but to stay on top of Current Technologies.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice here actually

    Pros

    I have been at Sandvine for the past 6 years of my 14 year professional career, and I have no intention of leaving. At Sandvine I get to work with an extremely talented group of people, on a variety of interesting projects. People are friendly, helpful, and appreciative of your efforts here.

    I have worked at a variety of different companies from startups to one that dwarfs Sandvine, and after a while you can get a sense or feel for how a company is performing, both in terms of the market, and towards their employees. In the six years I have been here at Sandvine, things have been getting better and better. These days, this place feels like all cylinders are firing and we've got great momentum. There is a palpable energy here that is only present at a company that is on a winning streak, and it feels good.

    I decided to write this review because yesterday I was walking down the hall at Sandvine, and I spontaneously found myself thinking, "Man, I love my job." I'm feel lucky to be here during this exciting time.

    Cons

    We work hard at Sandvine, and sometimes you have to suck it up and put in the hours to get the job done. This may mean sacrificing personal/family time on occasion. If this is something you are uncomfortable with, this probably isn't the place for you.

    I personally don't consider this a significant con though. You're going to have to work hard at some point during your tenure at any company. It's no different at Sandvine - what is different from many places, however, is that we celebrate our successes, effort is recognized, and employees are rewarded. If you are driven, Sandvine is a great place to show off your effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The future at Sandvine looks very exciting, with the course you've put us on.

  3. One of the best places to work for!!

    Pros

    I work for the QA team, which is very strong. Almost everything is automated and cutting edge. There are people in this team that are very bright and know a tonne.

    Cons

    Information flow from Product Developers to QA Developers is poor. Often QA need to ask Product Dev. many clarifying questions before we can start automating our stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Bring up the product related knowledge within QA team members.

  6. Smart people. Leading edge technology.

    Pros

    A lot of smart people work in Engineering (Programmers and QA, most of who are also developers).
    Unbelievingly cutting edge technology. Literally will be exposed to ideas and tech. that no other company anywhere has tried yet.

    Cons

    Might not be the best environment for people who need a lot of support and guidance (i.e., documentation is something not clear).
    You are expected to be self starter who can figure things out, investigate when things go wrong, and drive processes without needing to be spoon fed.

    Advice to Management

    Refresh internal docs.

    Pros

    Good management and smart people. They treat interns like full-time employees. Great work-life balance. Feeling of being a part of the team.

    Cons

    Cannot come up with any cons. Senior co-workers are sometimes not much helpful because of the intense work. Challenging for junior programmers.

    Pros

    Sandinve has an unwavering focus on product development with a passion to be a leader in its space. Sandvine India is an equal stake holder in the organization's road map and several new products are led, developed and deployed by the teams in India.

    This provides immense opportunities to be a part of and influence all aspects of the product life cycle, field trials, live deployments and customer engagements.

    This is a great place to be for anyone who enjoys an intensely engineering oriented environment. Your aspiration and capability drive what you can or cannot do. There are no artificial limitations imposed by hierarchies, politics or site level differences.

    Being aggressive, taking risks and refusing to accept failure as an outcome is part of Sandvine's DNA.

    Having fun at work is not just a credo, it is a way of life at Sandvine. So is doing whatever it takes to ensure commitments are kept. For Sandviners, the two go hand-in-hand and most days end with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.

    Cons

    None really if you enjoy being a game changer. Can be challenging if you are looking for an easy going pace of work.

    Advice to Management

    Sandviners have great ideas to make Sandvine even better. Keep seeking them out.
