Pros

1.) Infrastructure is Awesome.
2.) Team Building exercise(NucOuting) is fun, happens once in a year
3.) Parties:- Company spends money on extracurricular activities like Diwali Party, Annual Day celebration, New Year Party etc.
4.) Library, Recreational Block, GYM etc.
5.) Business Understanding:- Management and core people have good BFSI domain and Business understanding.
6.) Learning:- Good learning of root level code/testing for fresher’s.

Cons

Long List:-
1.) Poor Project Planning:- Company grabs project on a very low estimation, but the actual work on project is much more, so the employees have to put extra effort just for project completion by doing late sittings.
2.) Favoritism:-
3.) No Work Life balance:- They will even call on you on Saturday and Sundays without paying.
4.) No Respect of Employees:- Employees are treated like slaves not humans.
5.) No Job Security:- Employees are fired irrespective of their responsibility. If you are slightly weak performer, you can be fired any time. Recently many of my friends are fired and many of them are on development program.
6.) Technology:- Technology stack used is so old and legacy coding is preferred. Although they are trying to improve in this, as they have to cope up with the growing market, but it will take time.
7.) Growth:- In terms of salary, client interaction(except some BU’s),personal development. The company offers very less. Training are not efficient.

Advice to Management

Respect employees, do project estimation such that employees are not over utilized, the company is not going to achieve its 500 million goal just like that. Make employee friendly policies not employer friendly.

    Pros

    Good company for freshers as they get lots of exposure. They get to face lots of challenges and thus get mature in Industry quite earlier in comparison to their peer at other companies.
    Freshers get lots of onsite opportunities and client facing opportunities at early stages.

    Cons

    Seems senior management is content with what ever they are able to return to their Shareholders.
    Board has become like a 'Baniya' who just want to earn bread and butter for his family and can not think beyond to expand his "Kiryana Shop" into a "Multi brand Store".
    For last so many years, growth of company is negligible, customers are not happy, internal teams are not happy.
    Senior management changes after every few months and thus lead to change in policies even before the last policy change gets matured causing so much of instability in processes and project executions.

    Advice to Management

    --. Understand the basics of a Product Company - Knowledge sharing and making people as ASSET is MUST for any product company.
    --> Get practical and competitive.
    --> Should be ready to take risks to expand in new markets.
    --> Instead of hiring new people for Senior roles, try to identify people internally who have been working for company for so many years and understand in and out of Product and Clients very well.

    A sinking ship that's getting lighter every day...

    Pros

    Only pros I can think of, is that after lunch you get to move around a huge lawn. Besides, few activities in between make you kind of distract from routine chores. That's it. Let's move to Cons

    Cons

    This company started 26 years back. Almost at the time when Infosys, Apple, NIIT were started. HCL started much later than Nucleus so did Hexaware technologies.
    And where are they now?
    Apple = $400 billion :o
    Infosys = $12 billion
    HCL= $6 billion
    NIIT = $2 billion (both tech and ltd divison)
    Hexware = $600 million
    Nucleus? ~ $6 MILLION!!!!!! Yes, that's ONLY million. And no ZEROES are missing.
    After 26 years of commencement, they are only close to $6 million.

    What makes Nucleus software lag behind its peers?

    Of course the staunch scrooge attitude "keeping their shops limited to an area and feeling blessed with whatever they've got". One product, FinnOne, somehow got the limelight thanks to marketing team and rather than trying harder, they felt like, that's it. Keep releasing updates to it and we're good forever. No need to be the bigshots. We're austere .... ramu, get that patch done in next 10 minutes!
    I wonder how they are paying money for 1400 staff besides operating that huge campus and still maintaining a profit to sustain. And to top it all, they've hired 200 freshers from esteemed colleges. May god bless the freshers and all the best to them.

    That makes it another thing to ponder, why do they need such a humongous staff load when they can easily do without most of them.

    Recently in September 2013, they fired 127 poor folks. So for a goof-up their senior management did, the poor folks are bearing the wrath. What kind of injustice is that?
    Why did you hired so many freshers in first place?
    And now to accommodate them, they had to fire the folks under the veil of poor performance.
    The HR Head has earned himself a AVP badge and is now just looking out to rattle Nucleus Software brutally before he too moves out of Nuclues and reportedly he has already tendered the resignation.

    And all this is only the tip of the iceberg. CEO is a great man, very humble human but sadly he hasn't been able to do justice to the position he holds. Anyone but him, with dynamic and foresighted management would've taken company miles ahead.

    The Last thing - What's up with that employee micromanagement? Feels like you're working in an old age home. Strict 9 hours has been quashed in almost all of the places in IT industry, but sadly the honchos here believe it will make organization productive, as if last 26 years as example weren't enough.
    The newly in-effect leave policies almost make your BP shot through to cloud nine. Only 27 leaves applicable in a year, fall sick or get married, visit your hometown whatever, just do them in these 27 days in a year.

    This company seriously needs a rework in strategies to revamp the structural operandis otherwise, its a sinking titanic which is getting lighter day by day.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit open minded, accept the mistakes than trying to be near perfects
