    Pros

    Technically deep. The management considers the long view with regard to employee and company growth. Personal relationships with senior management are genuine but practical. Work is fast paced and is best suited to talented people eager to learn who are capable of managing themselves for the most part. Customer base, partners, technologies, and people that one ends up associating with are typically from a solid pedigree. Management is quite flexible. For the most part people possess a good sense of humor and enjoy their work.

    Cons

    The technology is challenging and the technical work is always moving fast as standards and adjacent technologies change. Poor time management skills will probably result in some frustration. Especially for field people most of the admin (expenses, travel arrangements, shipping) have to be managed your self (which can be good or bad). Not for someone looking to cruise. You need to do your home work take initiative and ownership. Otherwise it becomes an uphill battle. Has their unique culture and you have to be willing to leave behind some prior company habits.

    I worked at LDRA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation is good and good place for independent contributors
    Good place for self learning and leave facilities are adequate

    Cons

    There is no process followed in the company ! It is a mess with adhoc work culture, no professional work atmosphere. You got to book your tickets and Hotel for travel and all from your personal bank account !!!
    Infrastructure in India office is pathetic and you can't work from home even in the absence of water and power !
    Appraisal process hardly exists !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bringing in some process into the company may help make it a better place to work. A 360 degree appraisal review may help the company a lot :)
