    Pros

    Zindagi has amazing life-work balance. You are actively discouraged from working overtime. You also get every other Friday off. There also were a number of very smart software engineers.

    Cons

    Started as a Sony Move specific company and unfortunately the Sony Move has not gained much traction in the marketplace.

    Pros

    Every Other Friday Off
    On-Site Gym
    There are some talented and smart people at the company

    Cons

    Salary - I am just gonna say that after leaving Zindagi, I got a $45k raise in my salary.
    There is a lot of chaos.
    Management that does not have any clue about what's going on.
    Art controls not only the art side but also the design side of the project. A lot of thrash and confusion happens because decisions come from the art side, and they are not well thought out.
    Engineering management is not done in a smart manner, and a lot of poor decisions are made.
    Some people who work at the company are there just because they have been there forever, not because they are qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Joining Zindagi was one of the worst decisions I have ever made in my life. My advice to the management would be to first of all, make a decision and stick with it. Going back and forth so many times would only waste your money. Change some managerial roles if you can. Just because you have survived just fine in an environment with low competition, does not mean that you can compete with big names in the industry now.
