    Pros

    Hiring process is good and pretty fast.
    Average pay scale.
    Work environment is quiet ok.
    Company culture is also quiet ok.

    Cons

    They have low pay scale range.
     Very few perks so most of the employees leaves pretty soon.
    Expect the experiences with management to vary widely. Some are great, some not so much

    I worked at Calsoft Labs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pro's instead I would say this is no company to consider.
    Employees can't trust this company.

    Cons

    They don't do dependent visas
    They don't even bear dependent flight expenses.
    They have very few clients.
    If client project is over, then they don't even pay for a single day.
    Very dangerous trusting them, please search other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you go greedy about money, you can't retain employees. All you can get is only left over.

    Current Employee - Technical Architect in Chennai (India)
    Current Employee - Technical Architect in Chennai (India)

    I have been working at Calsoft Labs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment to work with.
    Flexible office hours, work from home option (but depend on the account you get in to)
    Lot of importance given to recreation, ( this is the first company I have seen majority of happy faces around all the time)
    Salary on par with industry but not lucrative.
    Lesser variable pay (paid half-yearly on time), clear payroll system.

    Cons

    Company identifies itself with some ethnic background, (most of the middle management is from a particular ethnicity). Though there is no outright partiality seen practiced, there is a bit of hindrance among other people.

    People are more connected with their clients / accounts than the company, if the account is closed, there is an uncertainty, so no one feels the job security. This should not be the case for a company of this size.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Calsoft Labs full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They might give you good salary offer to join Calsoft but depends on project

    Cons

    Prior to joining several things were not told. Candidates coming from product companies may be surprised after joining. I am not blaming the company but HR can openly speak some of these
    Here are some of the Cons
    1. There is attendance and strict time logging
    2. No Work from Home facility
    3. No Cabs
    4. No Cafeteria
    5. Time gets deducted if you go out to have food outside.
    6. Old desktop PCs to work with
    7. May be moved to different project based on requirement(although you are hired for something)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide better working environment and flexibility
