    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define the markets you address and exactly what your products do "We are very good at telling our customers what we aren't but not very good at telling them what we are".

    I worked at Kalido as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The office is friendly and welcoming. Being there felt like having a small family made up of distant relatives.

    Cons

    Everyone's job is very focused. There's not much room for variety here. Work should be exciting and this wasn't so much. This also makes it difficult to connect with coworkers on their work - everything's so specialized there's not much common ground.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Kalido full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good Technology and a huge learning curve. Salary is generally 2-2.5 X. Most of the work is in C++/C#. One product is in Java/JSP. Lots of new features are getting added. Huge usage of DB and you will get a huge learning curve on your SQL skills.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunity for growth as it is a small company. May be after 3 years you may feel like doing the same things again and again. Great managers in the Indian team has left. Also, most of the good work get done in UK office.
