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

    Pros

    Healthy work environment

    People get all new technologies to work on, specially Microsoft technologies.

    This company is relatively small but strongest in the industry, it is strongest because of the enthusiastic people on the floor and the leadership.

    Seniors are very helpful and co-operative to others.

    People get higher assignments, responsibilities which makes them capable to handle higher duties, roles. This also helps in personal development.

    Salary and increments are as per industry standard, sometime more than that if you deserve.

    Management team is ethical, easily accessible and always open to receive feedback, suggestions. I have seen senior management team helping employees on personal level.

    Financially company is performing well since last one year.

    Your efforts are recognized and appreciated time to time.

    Great place to work.. I would definitely recommend Atidan to others.

    Cons

    Most of the time you get immense work pressure. Need to work on multiple projects due to resource crunch.

    Some HR policies like yearly variable pay sounds unjustifiable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are already performing well, just need more focus on employee's personal development.

    Pros

    More than a year at Atidan..

    The foremost good thing is the environment. You can approach your manager anytime for anything and they would make sure that your concern is duly noted and atlast the outcome is your satisfaction.. Apart from it, everyone working out here are best in what they do and are very helpful.. In short, a very friendly environment to be in..

    When it comes to IT, technologies matter. This is the place offering the best exposure to the latest technology, whether it is Sharepoint, Windows 8, X-Box, .net, mobile developement etc..

    Apart from it, many other skills are shaped like client communication etc.

    The work hours are pretty flexible..

    Believes in "Performance" and it is appreciated as well..

    The pay scale is as per company standards..

    Cons

    Must plan team outings.

    You just need to be on your toes and really quick enough to grasp anything that comes up.
    Take everything as challenge and just keep on performing...

    I have been working at Atidan

    Pros

    Compensation is great, obviously. Fun place to work, and they really take the effort to make the building themes be as interesting as possible, especially in the newer buildings. It's not atypical to be given your own projects early on, but you're encouraged to seek out lots of help since they know you're still learning the ropes.

    I also want to address a couple of claims on here that I consider inaccurate:

    1) Work hours reported by other people are way over exaggerated. I typically work 40-45 hours a week and based on traffi

    Cons

    I also want to address a couple of claims on here that I consider inaccurate:

    1) Work hours reported by other people are way over exaggerated. I typically work 60-70 hours a week .Expect an endless list of priorities in one project,difficult to manage family and work life at tyms,24 hrs on call and weekends.

    Pros

    Great development team. You will work with people who are best in the industry when it comes to respective technologies
    Payment is at par with industry

    Cons

    >> This company dosent care for employees anymore. Its a body shopping unit,.
    >> They are now cheating the clients as well. They will take up new projects when no one is available, then they will hamper some existing projects to cater new client. If not for new projects, they will pull you out from project and put you at client side anywhere around Mumbai.
    >> When you are on client side, they will expect you to work on internal projects.
    >> They count your worth in pure monetary terms, so forget about adding value, just bring in the billing
    >> They will never consider that you have a task in hand and will keep adding more to your plate. Everything is Urgent here

    Questions - Answers - Truth (Do play this fun round with HR and Management)
    Q: How many people you have?
    A: We are about 100 strong people
    T: They are around 30 (including 4 HR and Admin), rest are body shopped to bigger companies

    Q. Do you expect me to work on technologies I don't know at all
    A: We try take into account the personal aspirations
    T: You dont have an option

    Q: How much / efforts you invest in personal development of employees
    A. We have very good set of learning material and we arrange MS trainings
    T: They never give you time for personal development, When they cant deport you out at some client, they might give you time to watch some stupid videos. There was no training happened where they invested some money in a trainer.

    Q: How many projects you will work on
    A: We expect people to do multi tasking
    T: There is no logic or method. Some people work on 6 projects at a time, I might sound crazy, but think about the people who feel its practical. You can be tossed to a new work practically every week. Management does a stupid resource allocation meeting every week and move people from one project to another. You will find no peace no focus.

    Q. So is there any fun at work?
    A: We have our events
    T: Nothing at all. You cant organize anything in office timings. Even taking people out for having ice-cream is not allowed. They have never arranged a party out, a fun event, haft day trip even on a weekend.

    Q. If I stay here for 5 years, will I get graduity benefits?
    A. They will not have one
    T: They would least care about the government rules, they will deny it. If you force, you are in bad books, forget about getting good feedback for any future need from them

    So will I recommend this company to a friend.. well, I have enough enemies already!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont treat your employees like 'resource', you will lose all the good ones in maximizing the output.
    These are humans, with mind and conscious, they need some time and peace of mind to grasp, learn and to be effective.
    If possible drop the term 'resource' and may be the mindset will change
    Invest in your people, focus on effectiveness, productivity, give your people some good technical and soft skills trainings. You have got gem of people, do something before they leave you.

    - An year ago I would have put the following point in Cons however it is a good example of overcoming a ‘Con’ by vigorous efforts and transforming into a ‘Pro’
        - Earlier business growth was outstanding however lacked in diversification strategies (one of the key factors of business growth) which impacted the business during recent global recession like period. However after realizing the same, the management changed the strategies and strived vigorously for sales growth. Now the company has started spreading the business again. Kudos to the management.

    Cons

    No cons as such but some advice given to the management below

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Should also focus on getting more repeat orders. Although to some extent got some success in the same still you have good potential in account development
    - Attract investors so that new product development may be taken up in a strong manner
