I have been working at MAQ Software

Pros

MAQ Software is filled with very smart employees that are able to carry their own weight and provide support when needed. The projects that we work on are pretty cool and we get to work with folks that make the work fun.
It's nice that the company is big enough that there are plenty of resources for you to rely on, but still small enough that you can make a big change and your ideas can be heard by senior management. It's not difficult to make a big impact in the company.

Cons

As deadlines approach, the pressure can be a little intense but smart planning and competence will help minimize this aspect

    I worked at MAQ Software

    Pros

    Majority of the projects are from Microsoft. So you get to work on the same tools and technologies used at Microsoft. Good for freshers out of college.

    Cons

    High work pressure environment. Employees are expected to work 15-16 hours a day and dedicate their life upon joining this company. Zero work-life balance. No respect for employees. No company culture. High attrition as most employees get frustrated and leave. My advice to new hires is think twice, no think thrice before taking up an offer with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with dignity and respect, both the ones who work there and those who leave for better opportunities. Also please stop writing self reviews on this site. They will not help your reputation.
