    I worked at Sify full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good platform for beginners
    An opportunity to explore technologies on various platforms
    More friendly in nature than professional enviornment

    Cons

    Will have an opportunity to learn but that would become routing after sometime
    No much growth apart from Designation but Authorities & Responsibilities would remain same
    You have to do all work & own up the responsibility else they would blame if you do or don't do
    Shouldn't think about Personal Life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation to be matched as per Market standards
    Shouldn't bunk the appraisals & do it on time
    should be rewarded for people who has put efforts & recognize them to elevate to next level

    Sify company has many other subsidiary which you can potentially move and secure the job if one is not doing good.
