    I worked at Arcot Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They provide food for all employees

    Cons

    I was a PM there for 3 months and the work load was so much I had no sleep, no rest, no weekend nothing. I heard that there had 12 PM come in and go in 6 months. Senior management didnt see a red flag at all and turned a blind eye to this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look after the employees and dont treat them like slaves

    Pros

    flexible timings and easy work
    free food

    Cons

    delivery team the director has shown unethical and unprofessional attitude. They may make you quit forcibly. It can hamper your mental state. It was like my way or highway. Do not join Service delivery team. Fights , fights and fights. Product engineering team is fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Atleast do not promote unprofessionalism. You should instead curb this type of culture. It will hit you badly in future. Do not forget law of Karma

    Has awesome friendly people at office.

    Never had to work on weekends!!

    If you have good email skills and can argue sky is the limit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the actual people working behind the scenes get the credit and not the people presenting the work to the management.

    Pros

    There is no best reason as such. Yes there is one .. Butter utilization !

    Cons

    Poor management, poor HR, no proper facilities,No Safety. Stinking wash rooms..unhealthy atmosphere, workstations..It's always the wrong people at the top.,People will be sent abroad to satifsy the employee, and the employee leaves the company once they reach the venue. No work ethics. People at office mostly engaged in the stocks and shares and other important personal work..meeting rooms are booked for gossips.. no proper work assignment. And the last and not the least .. The maximum utilized resource is from the pantry and that is " BUTTER" . butter is always in demand and kilos and kilos of butter is used every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Escape !!!
