    Bad experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSrikanth and his humility, Few jovial ppl
    Had joined hearing it had good culture, still trying to find it though

    ConsPeople principle, flexibility to work is a big big facade and hoax. Senior senior management refers to it as 'people principle and all that crap'.
    I voiced my opinion and was threatened it will 'effect my growth'. No ethics, except for a handful of people. Specially US leadership is ready to fall down to extreme levels for immediate and short-sighted benefits.
    A bunch of bullies pushing anyone who differs. Don't give power to even account managers after mismanaging expectations. Unable to staff people after promising sales. Ask middle management to handle things, while they try to 'engage' with false growth promises. Old people show too much power while new ones have to establish against all obstacles. Almost threatening.
    Salary is also very low compared to others because of few decision makers.

    Hoard of new senior managers joining who are ever so loud and cannot stop boasting about themselves. Pushy, desperate to impress Srikanth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBroaden your vision. Srikanth has it, but a hollow leadership, too busy to micro-manage. It will get you the short term wins, but cannot take you any further.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bad Management

    (Current Employee)

    ProsCEO and management team in India is good

    ConsSenior management in US is dysfunctional. Most are bullies with no corporate experience. They have great designations but don’t know how to manage people.

    They don’t set good example for juniors. One of their most senior employee keeps bragging about how the US office was setup by him, and he is hounded by MSigma to join them and has so many offers from companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHumility and honesty are important traits of leadership – the juniors can see through your shrewdness, double standards.
    I don't think the company will go anywhere without work done by junior people on the ground.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior Management and HR are the biggest hindrances in the company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA bit of a freedom in doing and exploring new stuff and taking initiatives

    ConsSenior Management lacks the leadership, team management and proactive decision making. The company takes care of an employee only when they need one, otherwise no care about the employees at junior level.

    Company just talks about Values but there is no effort in achieving them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust change the complete Executive team and hire some good leader, so that other employees can look upto them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Warning---stay away from this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Imbalanced employee mix

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLooks like there are opportunities and growth is rapid but you must know how to grow

    ConsA company that only appreciates the employee whom he needs, promotions are given randomly but no one is concerned about any of the employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe HR and team mix needs to be balanced. Too many senior employees in the team can't grow the team, they can only fight among themselves for the best approach

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Learning Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsThe flexibility of the organization is refreshing as many companies are not and the genuine caring of the staff and employer of their employees. This is a young company so they are eager and hungry to learn, be productive that results in being successful.

    ConsBecause of my role and having to deal with many who are in India it sometimes makes it a challenge to get this done as quickly as you like.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds consistency across the board in respects to administration and the need to be more communicative in order to get things done in a timely fashion. Although there is a time difference, but if your able to get all your question/request answered with less back and forth would be helpful

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
