    Former Employee - Senior Project Engineer in Noida (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Project Engineer in Noida (India)

    I worked at C-DAC Kolkata full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being in the government sector it provides the secure working environment which is good for learning. Its integration with the industry oriented courses make it easy to find a good number of trainees.

    Cons

    A big issue is slow decision making and interference from the ministry. Not being able to properly deploy people is also an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balancing needs to be done to avoid Ministry's influence, and only then CDAC can get any project from industry in addition to only government sector as is the case now.

    I have been working at C-DAC Kolkata

    Pros

    This is place where u have good opportunity to learn new technologies.
    Life is relaxed as deadlines are not so deadly!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism
    Employee growth is solely based on time factors rather than performance
    Staff Rules are obsolete
    Lack of facilities for non-scale based employees like P.E.
    Salary not at par with industry for P.E.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plz. build a proper hierarchy in the organisation
    Define staff rules clearly and moreover communicate same to the staff rather than hiding it.
    Consider performance for promotion rather than time-spent.
