    Pros

    The company has very committed management team and a clear direction. Changes its path proactively to align with latest trends. Whether it is about long term product roadmap or inorganic growth. Company has equal focus on customer success as well as employee satisfaction. Provides flexibility for employees to move across departments to accept new challenges and add value. Managers have very high focus on employee engagement. Fantastic work-life balance. Employees get to work on latest trends on data management space.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    1. Great learning opportunity: You get to work on latest technology with one of the smartest people. Even if you join a fresher you get real development work if you are good. The best thing is its not one of those companies where you get the design out of HQ and you just do the cosmetic work, many products are released out of India and you get to work right from a requirement gathering phase. 2. No politics: If you are good at your work, you will be recognized and appreciated, no cheap politics you need to do for hikes/promotion. 3. Great work culture: At times works do get hectic, but that is not out of hand and its far better than many good companies that we know where your boss is on your head to get the work done, even if its get hectic at times of release you get some flexibility. 4. What else you need it has got everything you would look for in a ideal place you would want to work at.

    Cons

    I feel salary is little less from what big product companies in the market offer, this should be looked at otherwise its somewhat affects the feel good factor working for any company.

    Advice to Management

    No as such, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Exposure to latest technologies Flexible working hours Friendly environment Good pay - on par or better than market in many instances

    Cons

    Moving from a publicly traded to private company. Having been a successful publicly traded company for more than a company this move is a major cultural shift at least for manager level and upwards. Remuneration policies are unknown at the moment as the stock options are gone!

    Advice to Management

    All the best !
