    Pros

    Salary is paid on time. Nothing much beyond that. It is like a mom & pop owned grocery shop type management.

    Cons

    -Opaque management -False promises -Exploitation -11 hrs of daily work -Bonded work -Pathetic pay scale -super high attrition -negative environment

    Advice to Management

    Think about the people that work for you. Unhappy and negative environment will only cause harm than good. A large corporation will not be built with most people with you unhappy.

    Pros

    Working remotely and nothing else

    Cons

    This company pays almost "nothing." They send you assignments with very tight deadlines without offering premiums, as otherwise stated in their handbook. No room for negotiation or discussion. When I started the communication was better. I think something happened in the last six months.

    I worked at Crimson Interactive part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are able to work remotely. This is a great job if you have a home office.

    Cons

    These people do not pay you for work completed. They harass you constantly to edit papers at odd hours. Furthermore, if there is anything that they do not like about the paper that you edited, then they will not pay you.

    I have been working at Crimson Interactive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Been in Crimson for over 2.5 years now and i think i took a sane decision to join this enthusiastic bunch of people, where everyone wants to contribute and make a difference. The company arranges a lot of facilities for its employees like food vendors in morning, afternoon, evening so that food any time of the meal is available in the premises. These are little things that matter much

    Cons

    More fun filled activities are needed

    Advice to Management

    Organize more events

    I worked at Crimson Interactive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked, worked hard, and grew in this company. Like any good silicon valley kind of a start-up I did loads of things, learnt in the process and developed my overall skills and competencies. As a result I have grown, am more marketable and also confident of my detailed holistic knowledge and business understanding. People around are young and energetic. We have many team members who are foreign nationals so that is another add on plus to the learning curve (working with them, understanding their cultural nuances, partnering with them in time-bound projects) - all in all a great overall experience to anyone willing to grow his or her career!

    Cons

    When you compete against the best in business and global MNCs the perks/policies should also be competitive. This is where the major scope lies. While retaining the garage start up efficiency, the company should move at more moderate and broad minded policies as it grows. Certain things are happening but more should be done towards larger employment benefits, progression and development.

    Advice to Management

    Move to 5 days work week. Increase insurance covers and allow parental coverage sooner - do not wait for 6 months or band change please.
