    I have been working at Ignify full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Been working here for more than 5 years and the company has changed for the better. While there is a still a very strong entrepreneurial culture processes have gotten better, things are more streamlined and generally there is a bigger company attitude. Someone has worked hard to make that happen. Work/ Life balance has also improved. Working weekends though not at zero don't happen very often and frankly if you want zero working weekends then don't look at a career in IT. I'm able to spend quality time with my family and Ignify has helped me get loans, buy a house. I'm grateful for the opportunities I have been given. Company continues to grow and is very profitable.

    Cons

    Some things can still be adhoc. Travel can sometimes be an issue depending on your job - especially for consultants. However, travel is far lesser than other IT consulting firms from my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't really think of much to add. I think Ignify University is a good initiative but it should be made more regular and we should work on bringing in external coaches and trainers in addition to the peer to peer training.

    Sometimes too busy. Need to manage work/life. This has really improved in the recent months though. The management is working hard at it
    Very Entrepreneurial - which is generally good but sometimes processes are not fully baked.

    Spend time on better documentation and processes. The excellence initiatives are good. Continue to invest in the business.
