    Ok for a short stint

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    ProsFlat structure. Inspired individuals can follow their passions in open source. Most of the projects are done in the latest bleeding edge technologies and frameworks.

    ConsPoor pay - they catch up with the market rate every two years and then the pay becomes ok. No career growth. Very high attrition rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more involved in projects. Try to really understand employees. Offering a career path is not optional if talent has to be retained.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place for a fresher to kick start his career

    PROJECT ENGINEER-1 (Current Employee)
    Thiruvananthapuram (India)

    ProsCan have hands on knowledge on all basics,large fund of practical knowledge in communication and programming areas. CDAC is one of the prime research centers for learning computing and advanced applications of Computer Science in various domains. CDAC has good collaborations across India and Globe and is widely respected institution, working at CDAC helped me to work on pretty good networking concepts,wifi,LINUX kernel level and all communication basics of OSI layer has quenched the thirst of practical knowledge. CDAC has excellent training facilities and esposure from CDAC is countless.

    ConsCDAC is a semi-government organization; so there are few less incentives as one may find in private ones like Infosys, TCS, Wipro etc;most fo the employees based on contract of 3 to 5 years

    Company runs under without rules and regulation

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Pune (India)

    ProsIt is the best research place in India for NLP.

    ConsPeople are unfriendly. Seniors like CHAMCHE type person. Admin always think about officers or senior officials never for the employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should not depend on the middle managers. He should talk to the lower employee, so he can cross verify the report presented by the middle manager.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
