Pros

Solid, growing product Steep learning curve early on - expected to take on client deliverable independently from the very start (could be a con for some) Fast-paced, aggressive culture with high visibility in the management (could be a con for some) Good starting salary and better than average increments (much better if you prove your worth and manage to communicate to the right people) Lately Company has been making significant efforts in making the culture more employee friendly - focus on retention Flexible schedule - working from home is acceptable, focus more on delivery of quality work

Cons

Difficult to navigate and get information when dealing with product/client issues - need to build personal relationships and engage the right people - not everybody's cup of tea There could be times when there is not enough work - it affects your bonus, affects your review for no fault of yours Management is rigid about execution, decisions taken at the top are firm and employee feedback and engagement not encouraged. To succeed, you need to follow the rules. It could be a big con for experienced professionals used to different culture.

Advice to Management

Do more to promote company culture Promote informal cross-functional meetings Provide more visibility into company's direction and decisions taken at the top

    Good pay and decent growth but beware if you are in the onset of your career. It could go either ways.

    Pros

    If you are in the good books of the right people at the firm you are going to have a smooth ride. Expectations are set very high and one needs to push himself in order to keep pace with rest of the employees which makes it a competitive environment for growth. Lots of opportunities to learn outside one's domain. High visibility in this firm considering the number of employees and hierarchy .

    Cons

    Too many changes too often indicate that organization structure and strategy lacks planning and execution. Entire firm is at the mercy of its CEO and since its completely privately owned, growth tends to shunt at a given point after which employees leave. Whole and sole purpose is to generate revenue for the firm and overall it lacks an amicable work culture or environment. Not enough opportunities to network with peers . Firm is too Silo'd similar to a robot where left arm has no idea what the right leg is meant to do as long as robot is walking and moving right .

    Pros

    Lots of smart people. Ability to work with some very high profile clients. Good technology and pretty current. Will be given a fair amount of lattitude to get your job done.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is fairly sterile. It's mostly about getting the job done and you're just another body. No tuition reimbursement unless you plead a case for it. Firm way over promises to clients which creates havoc later on.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and enough with the b.s. and finger pointing. Mananagement is always looking to blame their failures on someone lower on the totem pole.
