    I have been working at Ishi Systems

    Pros

    A company that focuses on technology and function equally. Very technical sound people, evident from the interview process. Great environment to work in. Small company without the negatives of a small company. Management is very approchable, never felt a hitch when communicating with my seniors on difficult issues. You have the option of working in consulting or client projects built in-house (outsourced). Understanding of your personal problems and helpful in overcoming them. Good sales/marketing team.

    Cons

    Compensation and Benefits on the lower side compared to industry standards. Growth prospect was minimal for me or maybe not in line with my interests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your compensation & benefits and get them at par with the industry standards.

    I have been working at Ishi Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1) Technology- Company is for the people who loves technology. You get chance to work on the latest & cutting edge technologies of IT industry.
    2) Infrastructure - One of the best.
    3) Flat Organisation - It means you are your own boss. You are not working under anyone and nobody is working under you. Company is having self-managed team and you will be part of that team. This suits best for die-hard developers.
    4) Food - Alternate friday breakfast which is full of quantity and quality. Company administration do their level best to get the best food from the city of different taste. Food for various occasion though. This will be in cons for those who are diet conscious. Every occasion has its own set of menu very beautifully designed.
    5) Administration - Company administrative staff treats developers as company clients. This should be the best thing and cannot be matched with any other organisation.
    6) Innovation Tournaments - This year company hosted “Ideathon” competition for its employees and invited everyone to present their ideas. Big prices were there for each rounds. Company gave its best to develop entrepreneurial skill among employees. This kind of competition indeed boost morale of employees.
    7) Ahmedabad Java Meetup - Company is hosting Ahmedabad Java Meetup where you get chance to meet and greet with developer community and interact with the latest trends in IT sector.
    8) External Trainings & Conferences - Company sends employees to attend trainings & conferences which is not necessarily based in Ahmedabad and free. Yes company spends a lot in each of its employee.
    9) Leave Policy - 27 leaves in a year. 10 holidays all in working days. 5 days/week. Company provides 15 days of vacation and encourages to take at least 1 vacation in a year. Company also encourages to take at least 1 leave in a month.
    10) Work Hours - No bounding of working hours. It’s important that you are doing work in a timely manner. Nobody will stop you if you’re coming late by 2 hours or leaving early by 2 hours.
    11) Sports - TT table in the company. Company participate in tournaments of various sports happening in the city and encouraging employees to participate.
    12) Staff - Your colleagues are highly experienced people and you will get a lot of learning from them. Ishi recruits only smart & experience people. Started getting interns since last year and they're also highly qualified and smart.
    13) Salary - Above par salary offered while joining. No words left for negotiation. Performance based reviews & bonuses every year. Appraisal happens every year and in a very standard manner.

    Cons

    1) Isolation with upper management: Upper management seats in US office and because of timezone difference it creates a little isolation between employees of Ahmedabad & US branch.
    2) Fire: Few employees are fired. Some deserved, some didn’t.
    3) Late night meetings: IT people love late night coding but don’t love attending late night meetings.
    4) Interview Process: It's a very lengthy process and has some loopholes. Many times a deserving candidate is also not recruited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Whenever anyone is fired it creates a bad impact in existing employee and a kind of fear as well.
    2) Try to reduce late night meetings. Employee is not in a position to discuss anything after a complete day of work.

    Pros

    1. They work with cutting edge technologies like Hadoop, Redis, MongoDB, Puppet etc., so good for technical growth
    2. Not much office politics
    3. They always give salary on time
    4. Occasionally sponsor lunch for employees
    5. They hire intelligent and nice people, so easy to work with other employees

    Cons

    1. Senior management introduces many new initiatives but they fizzle out after some time
    2. Middle management is mediocre, they are mostly techies who became managers, so often don't have good management skills
    3. Lot of micro management
    4. Org. structure is flat so not much scope of promotion
    5. No independent HR to address grivances. HR just repeats management's view
    6. Have very few clients, so their wishes are treated like gods
    7. Very secretive about project details, so hard to understand the business context
