    Pros

    Innovation at its core. Strong leadership with Sumit Goswami as CEO. Entrepreneurship driven. You get free hand to explore new opportunities. Sumit as a CEO is very approachable. Pays well with right work-life balance.

    Cons

    The company has lots of potential but it is operating at a sub-optimal level. There is a scope to improve the efficiency of the overall system.

    Pros

    - flexible timings with no stress to come at a particular time unless it is meeting or interviews. - Good place to use online Library and resources to increase the knowledge. - Work from home option. - leave options are more now. - small teams and more interaction among the departments. - Robust products in the portfolio which provides great opportunities to work on various aspects of them. - scrum meetings that allow transparency across what is happening with the product timelines. - multi cultural working environment with workforce from all over India and also all around the world from places like San Jose, Glasgow, Japan and China. - Employee Training options are always encouraged all through the year. - Good chances of promotions and increments and bonuses are paid on time. - Salary is never delayed and always on time.

    Cons

    - WorkFromHome option is not open to all employees. Mainly restricted to leads and managers. - Too many projects at the same time with less resource makes it cumbersome to work with so too much expectations with the resources. - Most of the employees work in tight deadlines with little amount of thought going in to what they are doing or what can be better. - Less R n D and this results in assumptions about a product success which in turn leads to less product penetration in the mass.

    Advice to Management

    - With careful planning they are already doing what is best possible. - Need to be swift in terms of changes in the products that happen in the marketplace. Otherwise competitors always go ahead. - For those changes to implement, there need to be proper dedicated RnD team in place that does PoCs and researches on new developments in the existing product possibilities. - Using single resource for multiple activities and products is a failure. Try to increase workforce and use dedicated resources. - work place needs to be modern with the seating not to be in old cubicle system but more open which is followed in new startups and young companies. - more team building activities should be conducted over the year.

    Pros

    You will have work and personal life balanced...

    Cons

    No challenging work, management doesn't have minimum ethics... you have be very obedient person to management.... if you work with this company after couple of years you will not have enough skill sets to change the company...

    Advice to Management

    Yes i know your glass door reviews are very poor because it deserves poor rating.... by see the latest reviews i can make out that you(CEO) with the marketing team is creating high rated reviews to show off... I remember when i was working we all are forced to rate 5 star in Play store for the Adaptxt app by creating some fake ids... same thing is happening now with the glass door as well... CEO and management doesnt have capabilities to raise this company to next level...

    Pros

    To start off, I have been at KPT for more than three years. Initially it was an excellent place to work with good technical team, but that last year and half has been bad due to new management The only Pro currently: Not much Work. If you want to relax at your workplace and pass time, then KPT is the best place to work.

    Cons

    Their product (Adaptxt) is saturated. There is nothing new to work on and nothing new to learn. Who ever joins now will have to work on code developed 1-2 years ago. Poor Sales Team. They have absolutely no idea about the product. Poor Senior Management. Again no idea about the product or about what was done, is done and will be done. They always put a feature/idea related to product extremely late by making it extremely complex. Simplicity isn't something that people think of at KPT Absolutely no innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put fake reviews on this site. Do not waste money. Know more about your product.

    Pros

    Flexible Timings Nice Work Environment Excellent Team members with positive attitude and good technical competencies

    Cons

    Lack of vision, can not differentiate between fantasy vs goal vs vision, all of them are one and the same for CEO Lack of decision making abilities, there is no concept of collective decision or group decision, All the decisions from Higher management are emotional rather than logical CEO is Moody and Fickle minded person, he can get influenced very easily and his decisions keeps changing just like chameleon changes its colours Incompetent Sales team, don't even know the features of the product but they sell the product, but CEO keep praising about sales team and he is very proud of having such sales team Poor market research/analysis before starting any new product development, There is no concept of SWOT analysis in this organisation, if you are able to please your CEO with any stupid idea then still it can be sellable Improper product planning and development, the project priorities keeps changing everyday and it is completely driven by customer mails. if there is a small bug reported by customer that becomes top most priority for that day and all other projects gets starved and tomorrow something else comes up, priority gets shifted to that project ROI metric has always been overlooked, CEO just goes by sales team prepared forecast of revenues without actual validation and here comes the best example to depict his strategy "If there is a business opportunity for 1 rupee, management thinks a lot to grab that opportunity and very cautious about development cost and allocates only 0.25 rupees towards it but finally ends up in spending 100 rupees towards marketing and sales tasks to sell that product for 1 rupee, in the end either they will sell it for 0.50 rupee or just scrap the product, this has been the strategy always and if board of members questions about revenues then cost cutting will be implemented where they will fire the innocent employees who can not raise their voice and drawing salaries less than 10K and interesting thing here is that, during the same cost cutting period they will hire sales team with high profiles(with their CTC you can hire at least 10 good developers and start a new product development) to increase the revenues and expand the business" Senior management doesn't even know the difference between perception and reality Higher management keep saying about Teamwork but they fail to follow teamwork at their level Firing policy is absolutely ridiculous, bottom of top performers also gets fired, indirectly passing a message to other top performers to look out something outside Finally if your CEO says 2X2=6 then if you accept it and nodd your head then you are safe but if you say no and try to correct it by saying 2X2=4 then that's it, it would be the last day for you in this Organization

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to change their mindset, if they have potential to bring-in change in themselves then it is wise to give piece of advice to make the organisation bit better but the CEO/management is always like "I very well knew what ginger is and it tastes sour like jaggery!", for such kind of management there is no concept of advice
