    I worked at Innodata Isogen full-time

    Pros

    There's good support staff, and the large number of friendly overseas management makes it easy to cut through to problems and address issues. Benefits are reasonable, and due to the distributed locations it's possible to work from home to some degree (depending on position).

    Cons

    The biggest hurdle for the company is their desire to move away from their core competency of data conversion, specifically in the publishing world. There is a strong push from upper management and the CEO to act and think more like a software company, but without the speed or investment to make such a change. As such, the projects that get the most attention are those with low risk and high reward -- which are rare, and take a significant build-up. Typically, winning and delivering these projects last beyond a single employee or set of employees, resulting in any momentum or internal software developments falling by the side. Compensation is a positive, but there is minimal support staff once projects are won from sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build out the middle of the company and determine a singular focus for what the company means, and then grow towards that focus.

    I have been working at Innodata Isogen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cheap canteen, flexi hours, incentive payouts, regular paychecks, progressive modernization and automation, versatile cluster of projects, state of the art offices atleast for employees based out of sector 62.

    Cons

    Sector 16 office is a chicken coop, most mid level managers are good for nothing except flattery, expert and logical advice is ignored in favour of personal profit advice, skilled employee retention is low, appraisals are extremely disappointing, and a lot of unfair practices followed. Most projects aim to milk the client for short durations using substandard output. Most of the middle management consists of long time work horses without actual technical expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instruct solution centre to initially use expert advice before bidding for a project using infeasible and unrealistic expectations.
