Pros

Overall, the company is moving in the right direction regarding software development, though there are still problems. Flexible schedule. Free snacks. Free dinner every day. Free lunch once a week. Gym. Team outings are paid by the company.

Cons

Very bad organization of different teams interacting with each other. One team blocked by another is a normal thing. Some approaches used during development of software are very questionable and bring a lot of hassle without any benefit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some people experienced in software development to organize development processes. Teams constantly blocked is waste of company's money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't do everything at once - choose and communicate our business priorities. This is not the time to hedge our bets.

    Pros

    Other than free Thursday lunch and free sodas I do not see any pros in this company

    Cons

    Senior management very incapable to provide a vision to its people. The product management team has no clear idea of the product they want to make. The CTO kept on giving false updates to the higher management, and when the product was supposed to be delivered it was found that the product was not complete with lots and lots of bugs. In last 2 years the CTO has always given provided absolutely scripted demos to the client without exposing the bugs and issues of the application. This even cost his job in the end

    Very average senior management and few senior SVPs believe in divide and rule policy. No cohesion between teams and each working to prove who is superior against the other. Absolute pandemonium and I wonder how few managers are software managers and not politicians !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO is good a good man but he has no clues what is going inside. Fire few more senior management else the company is doomed
