    Pros

    If someone is looking for a long term relationship should make sure that his requirements and what company provides are matching.

    1. Initially good package will be offered and will be treated very well so that one feels happy with the company.

    2. There are many official parties thrown out in 5 star hotels which will surprise even an employee who worked earlier with a big MNC.

    3. No strict enforcement of dress code.

    4. There is a general flexibility of working hours.

    5. Free lunch in afternoon.

    Cons

    1. There are no written Rules and Regulations. Hike, bonus, everything including survival in the company is at the mercy of the management. It may work in one's favor but there is a constant threat to the existence because of autocratic and Feudalistic policies.

    2. The company is depending on only few clients.

    3. Growth for an employee means increase in salary, learning new technology. There is no place for vertical improvement because of flat hierarchy.

    4. The HR should be professional. It is not just salaries, benefits, gifts which will make an employee stay in the organization. There should be a sense of bonding between employee and the company even during difficult times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. The company should be good with people who are planning to leave the company for greener pastures. It should not be treated like an end of the relationship but as an opportunity to promote the company with help of its alumni. It will help establish a good network which may help the company in getting better human resources, probable clients, industry recognition.

    2. The recruitment strategy is very short sighted. The company is interested in recruiting plug and play resources. The company should plan to recruit 5 to 10 freshers every year who are provided adequate training and given some time to prove themselves. This is should be done for at least 5 years so that there is diversified demography.

    3. The attrition rate of the company is almost 50%. After completion of every year there will be half the population who have joined previous year, while those 50% who left have either resigned or fired. The company should treat employee as a human being who have many responsibilities including that of his profession. The company should be sensitive towards the aspirations and emotions of employee. The trust deficit between employees and the organization should be minimized.

    I have been working at Applied Information Sciences full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Before listing the pros, I would like to mention that March-2014 firings were rolled back. All employees are called back and most of them joined. The sudden let-go happened because AIS lost a big client and maintaining 25 people on bench was tough. It was heart breaking and painful for everyone. But as soon as AIS got the vendor, they called back all the employees and some of them got hikes in salaries too.

    Pros -
    1 - Work on new and upcoming technologies.
    2 - Good salary and free lunch.
    3 - WFH option
    4 - Everyone is knowledgeable.
    5 - Promotes new technologies.

    Cons

    1 - Did some firing on short notice in past.
    2 - HR needs to improve the response time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Above everything - Keep a good exit process. Lot of employee felt bad the way they have been told that no need to come from next day and email ids will be blocked.

    Suggestions -
    1 - Now the company is growing so AIS should have a Project Management Group. This group does evaluation of the project at every step on a periodic basis.
    2 - Risk management - Keep the backup plan ready.
    3 - Provide quarterly updates to the employees that how the organization is doing.
    4 - Take up the maintenance projects also.
    5 - Take up KPO projects also and hire people with simple computer skills. These projects may not generate lot of revenue but these projects runs for year after year and is a continuous source of income.
