    One of the best companies to start your career

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    Pros1. A good working environment and culture
    2. Good upcoming products and good EDM platform
    3. Flexi- timings
    4. Very smart and helpful people
    5. Work-life balance

    Cons1. Preferential treatment by managers to people who butter them / chattus. (this happens everywhere, but increasing here)
    2. Space
    3. Some people are just wasting time here.
    4. Widespread birth of chattus encouraging chattugiri.

    Advice to Senior Management1. Please reward people who work seriously
    2. Please take training and hand-over seriously. People take years to learn a particular aspect of the product, when they leave the new people find it hard to cope with fundamentals.
    3. Be clear of upcoming policies and changes , as lower management in Mumbai is responsible for creating unnecessary panic among employees.
    4. Please give work to people who want to work.
    5. Even if you like chattus, make sure that your judgement is not affected my them so that you don't give a deserving employee bad reviews.
    6. Try not to converse in Hindi,Kannada, Telugu or Gujurati. Being in a leadership position, please don't degrade yourself. Juniors learn what they see and hear. Keep your mother tongue at home.

    Good culture, badly managed, not well thought of

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgood culture, flexible timings, friendly people on the floor

    ConsEnergy, investments, time wasted on wrong people. People should be asked to be on their toes and put in extra during times of crisis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the right people and promote/invest in them. To make the product better, we need to invest in the brains much more than investing in the implementors of the product. Hardworking people should be rewarded more appropriately.

    A very good company made bad thanks to new management at Mumbai

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    Pros1. You can learn new things technically e.g. linux, server management and finance if you really want to learn
    2.Work from Home option
    3.Flexi Timings
    4. Pays really well if you are good at negotiations

    Cons1. Indian management team
    2. Very few cultural activities and budget too reduced
    3. Cramped for space due to continuous hiring
    4. Unnecessary TLs from Nomura and other big companies who do nothing in QA (ok they spend 8 hours). People who were smart left QA, the first chance they had.
    5. Machines to reproduce client side issues are few.
    6. PSG think they know it all and try to pressurize dev and support teams (trust me they know only to talk)
    7. QA is powerless and everyone blames them if anything fails which they gladly accept thanks to previous QA heads
    8. For the first time this year the average increments were 10 - 12 % .
    9. New products failed to make impact as expected.
    10. Onsite opportunities only limited to PSG. Others are preferred if they are favored.
    11. Hindi and Gujarati language also during client and CEO visits.
    12. Dress code only during CEO visits ( still debatable whether to wear formals or casuals)

    Advice to Senior Management1. Get machines instead of useless people
    2. Don't make a product based company into a service based company
    3. Give employees a break, timeshit is not that important if work is done properly.
    4. Reward people on merit and not on caste, favoritism.
    5. Grow up and be professional
    6. Help the new CEO, accept his policies,
