    I worked at Aedas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary offered is top-tiered. The office environment is bright and spacious. Office hours are normal, fewer overtimes are needed. Many large-scaled projects and opportunities but that depends whether you work for the right director.

    Cons

    Corporate atmosphere. People between different teams do not talk to one another or share expertise. Can be difficult to move between teams. Directors seem to be competing with one another.

    I have been working at Aedas

    Pros

    Every employee is self dependant. The liberty to work as per your best of knowledge is what employees look for. Aedas has been very supportive in providing an independant platform and giving a lot of industry exposure to all the employees in India office.

    Cons

    Aedas is not getting much business in India due to its financial policies. Hence Indian market is getting a it difficult to tap. So , business projects are low in India.
