    Cons

    No proper salary, No job security, they fire when ever they want without any reason, very bad work culture, no projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employee with respect. Behave properly with the employee. Hire appropriate skilled people aligned to project requirement. When a project is not suitable to an employee give him a suitable project for his skillset and experience rather than sending him out immediately. .

    Calsoft didn't really grow in last 13 years. If calsoft wants to grow, it should work more like a corporate than a family owned business.

    Pros

    DEAR BROTHERS, SISTERS, FRIENDS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN...
    All these efforts i am putting in to write all this review is, i know how people are living their life. I dont want someone else to suffer.
    1. People come to this site to write bad reviews. NOBODY COMES TO THIS SITE TO WRITE GOOD REVIEW.
    2. Simply take your own example. In your entire career, how many times you have written REAL, GOOD AND GENIUNE review for the deserving company. JUST LOOK AT GOOD REVIEWS, AND THINK OF ARE THEY GENIUNE ?ARE THEY REAL?...
    So ultimately those are the fake reviews by HR to maintain rating of company.
    3. There is nothing good in this company. Believe me there is no point in getting in this company.
    4. No long term projects, just 2-3 months work and project is over. You will learn nothing.
    5. They open their mouth to make lie only. Now coming to Storage, Virtualization, Network DOMAIN. No good qwality work. Kernel and Storage developers, stay away from this company. I REPEAT: KERNEL DEVELOPERS STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY.
    KERNEL DEVELOPERS: Managers, Senior Colleagues, and team leads are full of bad attitude. They have negative mind sets. They will never listen to you.
    6. Appraisal concerns: NO Salary normalization happens at all. If you raise the appraisal concern, they will change your project. They will threaten you for number of reasons.

    Cons

    1. There is no single good thing you will find here. Except enough timepass.
    2. If you are extremely good at playing the game(politics game). You will be wasting your energy unnecessarily. End of the day, you will move out.
    3. Low budget company, no average salary. No uniformity in designation and salary. They are already in huge loss, you wont get good salary here.
    4. HR open their mouth to make lie only.
    5. YOU CANNOT SET ANY LONGTERM GOAL. They are short term business,, short on budget, weak business development people. ULTIMATELY, THERE IS NO GROWGH, NEITHER TECHNICALLY NOR FINANCIALLY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR is not good at recruitment.

    Pros

    1. lot to learn as fresher
    2. if proved a good opportunity, getting leadership is easy; but low chance.
    2.

    Cons

    1.work life balance depends on work. few people does have lot work load than most of the others.
    2. Personal growth depends on work.
    3. hopeless HR. increment policy is very bad.
    4. personal benefits depends on appraisal. HR are lazy enough to have one on one for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. take appraisals seriously and provide opportunity to prove oneself than cutting off personal benefits of someone. six months on bench was worst experience and you have no right to take off benefits for that reason.
