    I worked at Cranes Software International Limited full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for 5 years and initial years were good. worked in their varsity division. Not sure how it is now

    Cons

    where to begin? 2008 was bad for the industry. Cranes was no exception. salaries were delayed initially for 15-20 days, then 30-45 days. Cheque issued against delayed salary would bounce. payslips were issued regularly indicating PF and income tax deduction, but not submitted to the concerned departments. management folks kept assuring that we will not cheat you, every single penny would be paid. its 2014 and am still awaiting them to stand true their words. Form 16 also not issued for 2009-10. Full and final settlement not done still! Had even met the CEO personally and requested to release the pending due with no success than assurance. Complaints to labor department and income tax department have fell on deaf ears as they seem to have been bribed. They cleared the dues for people who didn't quit and stayed back. But for people who quit due there is no solution still.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is futile exercise as they don't give a damn, but still let me try and advice them: MAN UP! HOW CAN YOU GUYS SHAMELESSLY STILL RUN THE BUSINESS. THERE ARE 100'S OF OLD EMPLOYEES WAITING FOR THEIR DUES TO BE SETTLED, CALL ALL THEM AND SHOW THAT YOU ARE REAL MEN.

    Pros

    Wonderful products like Mathworks, dSPACE, Mentor Graphics . Exposed to the best technologies at early stage of my career

    Later on Management did some blunders which ended Cranes and most of the current sales heads in India are ex cranes which means they spoiled themselves

    I worked at Cranes Software International Limited full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    (I worked for almost 7 years there and quit in Dec 2012. Till 2008 recession all was good after which all hell broke loose)
    * Tremendous opportunity for the self driven and the talented to grow
    * Flexible work timings and casual and informal culture
    * Good hikes
    * Bosses were generally good and very approachable
    * Opportunity to interact with some brilliant and well known people from the world of Engineering and Statistics
    * Good locations (MG Road, Koramangala, Vasanthnagar - basically where all chicks are :P )

    Cons

    (All was well until 2008 recession after which)
    * All the big names left
    * Management (including HR) deteriorated rapidly and became authoritarian
    * Personal growth stunted - no appraisals and hikes
    * Self driven efforts had no one to pay attention to
    * Ambiguous stance on company growth with lot of handwaving and posturing
    * Owes a lot of money to a lot of employees, including former employees and yours truly
    * Company went into survival mode and engineering/innovation stagnated
    (June 2014 onwards some efforts are being made towards revival. I'd be very happy if that happens although I have moved on.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regards recent past, 2010 onwards: There is a difference between creative engineers and shop floor laborers...both cannot be managed with same principles. Must introspect. Seriously.
