    I have been working at LMKR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work focused culture
    nice business environment
    excellent work life balance as compared to other software firms
    comparatively better salary
    good medial cover
    good catering

    Cons

    despite its size more of a family run business
    No matter how many years of experience you have outside lmkr what matter what experience you have inside lmkr to be promoted
    More like a family run business evident from smoke and mirrors performance appraisal system.
    Dont even know the word 'strategic fit'
    Almost no objectivity to promotions/increments and appraisals, based on verbal aggreman between manager and employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your performance appraisal. Definition of corporation is a group of people working towards common goal.
    And that common goal is achieved through creating a strategic fit. Define organizational goals which should have top down effect on individual SMART goals at start of year and then appraise based on achievement of these goals. It will allow right people to rise to top and will also bring objectivity to the whole process. Currently this process shown the Rot at the heart of organization

    Pros

    A lot of learning opportunities here. Quality of work is improving, so are the compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Biggest problem are bad quality team members in some teams. So you might have to do work for those incompetent members too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve company culture, work environment and career opportunities. Also get rid of incompetent people who are burden and create bad culture.

    I have been working at LMKR full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salaries
    Impressive talent pool
    Challenging scientific problems to solve
    Professional working environment
    Agile Software Development Practices

    Cons

    Microsoft-centric.
    Frustrations and technical debt associate with lots of legacy code.
    Not working on modern technologies (mobile apps, cloud services, big data...)
    Primary source of revenue comes from one product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to inspire, motivate and give a clear sense of direction and vision to their followers and technical leads. I believe that LMKR has immense talent and potential but it is currently being under-utilized. If the management and HR is able to foster a culture of innovation
