Cactus is unique in the Indian corporate environment and it is truly a great place to work!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

Pros- Fantastic work culture: open, informal, young and incredibly vibrant
- Good people policies: Cactus is serious about keeping it's employees happy and does several things big and small right from unlimited tea-coffee/snacks and fun events to asking employee views before rolling out organization level policies
- Fast and sustainable growth: if you are smart, and are ok with working hard and can handle stress growth opportunities at Cactus are limitless.
- Great people to work with: the general public at Cactus is positive and hardworking. No matter who you work with you'll always learn something.

Cons- Weak on execution of and creating long-term strategy: Since Cactus is still young and unique in the Indian corporate scene (they offer language services to the academic community in East Asia) it is difficult to get strategy right. But I know that this will get better as the company matures.
- Need to find your own method to the madness: Things sometimes seem too chaotic, changes happen to quickly, past decisions and plan are not always reviewed. This sometimes leads to a feeling of being overwhelmed. You have to find your own way to deal with this in a positive manner.
- Decision making is sometimes slow and may seem random: this links back to being weak on strategy.
- Word of advice to job seekers, if you can't deal with change don't join,

Advice to Senior ManagementSince most of the management consists of home-grown leaders it would be good to to see the organization equip them with a more external focus, greater domain knowledge. Mentoring and coaching on soft skills from external/industry leaders will also help.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    I have been working at Cactus Communications full-time for more than a year


    Pros: 1) Flexible work timings 2) Great culture and work environment; friendly… Cons: 1) Uncertainty about roles (other than editorial) 2) Slight lack of work-life balance - most people don't distinguish between the two and that is the unsaid… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
