    I have been working at Ittiam Systems full-time

    Pros

    - Work on cutting edge domains (multimedia, image processing, mobile apps, hardware design)
    - highly talented staff and co-workers
    - Fun work culture (but not a startup kind)
    - you will have to learn and work, i mean no lazing around. (some may take this as a con)
    - steep learning curve - get to handle, design and own projects early on.
    - free food and good location of office

    Cons

    - bad project management practices
    - pathetic work life balance (management will hypnotize you to come on weekends and holidays)
    - aging infrastructure and facilities
    - some domains work on cutting edge stuff, but its also hard to find similar jobs as they are niche
    - used to fun work environment, but recently it has become boring
    - work can be stressful at times
    - 14 years on and still very small revenues - employee growth is there but company growth is stagnant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Work culture is kinda closed , organize hackathons and other events to freshen up
    - hire project managers from other good companies (almost all managers are in house promoted, so they dont know how outside world is like)
    - keep employers happy , give bonuses and other perks. its time some change happened
    - Please dont take weekends and nightouts for granted - some of the main reasons employees are not happy
    - Dont act like ittiam is the next google (It is not anywhere close)
