    It is OK

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    Pros1. lot to learn as fresher
    2. if proved a good opportunity, getting leadership is easy; but low chance.
    2.

    Cons1.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 Senior Management1. 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Calsoft is fantastic place for freshies

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    ProsGreat work, good work culture.It used to hire really smart people back in 2006. Fantastic exposer.
    Most of the people I worked with in Calsoft are working in top companies in US right now.

    ConsSalary. Although I don't think a fresher should ever worry about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCalsoft 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Worst company ever. Experienced: look before you leap. Freshers: if no any option, you can become QA here.

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsNo Pros.
    Being a human, it is responsibility of an individual to do their job enough well. They dont know their responsibility.
    Management is full of negative thinking,
    HR show fake requirements at the time of recruitment. Interview might be conducted of very hard level. But no proper Project. Business Development folks are weak, so no projects. HR is all the time busy in maintaining head count of company by recruiting for FAKE REQUIREMENTS. Attrition rate is hell.
    IF there is any project you get to work, you will end up in doing unnecessary work, unnecessary meetings. Commit suicide but dont enter in this organisation. On paper company seems good but, reality is very very worst.

    ConsDont see the companys website, it is full of just technical words, jargons, No strong clients in terms of finance and outsourced work. You will see No Future. Recruitment HR are worst, they make so many lies.
    Finally and most important, everything is running for money, which they dont have. Lack of projects, Lack of funds, No enough compensation. Highly frustrating environment. Treatment with employee is worst. People leave the company within a year of joining. Being a company of 300-400 people, within a month 90 people left. Who suffers most, employee / employer?

    Advice to Senior ManagementThough you are here to do business. First try to be good human. Vision, Values, Mission these things are just for the sake of name ?

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