    Strictly not recommended.....

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsYou will learn lot of stuff.... Very good in this aspect

    Cons1. company (sorry 1 person)...others are just dancing doll.
    2. I don't think that bunch at the top management is not self aware. They are best at their own way. But simply they don't want to listen or realize
    3. All decision are reverse engineered. I mean decision will be taken out of sleep and some bookish logic will be given and you will be asked for opinion with one choice...mean you need to agree
    4. Sometimes not all time decision out of book will be implemented for the period until next book suggest something else
    5. You as a employee has to think like management ( one person) ...if not you will be treated like a worm
    6. Top management....directors (s) just by title is bunch of people just say and say yes to the top one...most of the meeting are just yes, you are good kind of things
    7. Employee...I heard so many times that management saying they don't want any one more than two years
    8. No self respect or self esteem

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis post will have a disapproval. But if you just think you are aanother human you will realise most of the comments are unbiased.

    May be you can change the company by start listening to all levels of employee...I mean you should refrain from just hearing...when you listen don't have your brain tinned to defensive model

    Do you share a personal connection with your employee?

    Employee are human. Money and your gyan is just not enough

    If you still want to validate this...start a survey with alumni with anonymous feedback...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great working environment but Long Working hours

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsMicrosoft Certifications sponsored by the company itself.
    You will get chance to work on the newest technologies.
    Excellent work environment.
    Table Tennis tables are there and you can play anytime. No one will ask you the reason for not working.

    ConsLong working hours.
    Daily hurdles might be difficult for some employees to adjust to.
    If you get late more than 3 times in a month, they call you in for meetings and blah blah blah...
    No Cab service provided by the company in the morning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter infrastructure for Mumbai office and please arrange for Cab service.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst Company I ever worked for in my life

    Project Lead (Former Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsGood for freshers, lot to learn as fresher
    Certification is must

    ConsVery Long working Hours.
    Horrible work culture. Seniors and freshers are treat alike. Sometimes even frssher is asked to lead a project and lead/manager have to report to him
    Employees are treated as slaves
    Management does not support its employees at all. One of the reasons why the company is never growing the way actually should grow in a period of 10 yrs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo Advice, It can never change as they believe they are perfect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Biggest mistake of my career

    Associate Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsAll the developers are self-motivated and hard-working

    ConsMany many ...management is only for the name-sake ..very polluted culture..unsafe job and on top of that you have to like whatever garbage CEO thinks...and then they post fake positive reviews that our company is the best..my advice is do not join even if you have no other option..

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice since they all are useless

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Its not a company, it is a Circus

    Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsYou will learn how to adjust with worst conditions

    ConsLots and lots of cons are present and most of them already pointed out in previous reviews. Few cons which are not covered earlier, find them below
    1. Anytime they can introduce new policy without any reason. Recently they extended notice period from 1 month to 3 months. And that start effectively from the point of time email reached to employee inbox.
    They do not even give chance you to switch to different company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have one question to top management which they must answer their employees.
    What you want to do in this company and what you expect from the employees? They are working full day and night for you and you guys every day introduce new policies to make them depress. Is this right?
    You are running a company not a hostel. Introduce some logic in your actions.
    Though many people say this but it doesn't bother you. Company can flourish more if you don't do such things.
    I advice you to conduct an anonymous survey to check what your employee think about all this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
