    I have been working at Ittiam Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    small company. So, exposure to many technologies in short period of time
    All employees work efficiently. So, every employee gets a high momentum to work.
    The company is very much choosy. Best techies in the industry. . Finding an under-performer is too difficult. Working with each of them is rewarding.
    Reasonably good salary.

    Cons

    Not the place for lazy people. You have to work hard and manage time efficiently. Only for people who are passionate at work. Work load is usually high, so stretching your work time will happen more than often. Family people may find it hard to manage work-life balance. But, I have seen lot of folks who manage perfectly well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes, salary hike or bonuses are not enough to keep the employees stay.

    I have been working at Ittiam Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1. Stress on careen development. Ittians dont think of work as a job, but as a career.
    2. Highly knowledgeable seniors who have many years of experience in respective fields. They provide really good insight on what to do.
    3. Pretty good compensation comparatively.
    4. Steep learning curve, especially for freshers. The work is highly technical. No shenanigans.
    5. Flexible work hours.
    6. Friendly colleagues. Most teams are like a solid unit, people gel well with one another.
    7. Take initiatives to improve team bonding and openness.
    8. Very open work environment.
    9. Short training duration for freshers. You get the apt amount of knowledge. They don't overload you with too many unnecessary things.
    10. Best expertise in media streaming/media communication related fields.

    Cons

    1. Work gets a bit hectic during a few days. Its pretty normal workload on most days. This is common is most companies.
    2. Small company, thus company transport facility is not available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Expand more aggressively in the market. Leave no stone un turned. The company needs to grow. Although it is doing really well, it can grow even better with a larger talent pool.
