    Pros

    young crowd thanks to very very high attrition...

    Cons

    politics, long-long hours, repetitive work, no respect, your boss will treat you as his/her slave and on top of that the most ridiculous policies which they have, seriously they should shut this place down and stop mental/emotional harassment of people...somebody rightly said that Glassdor should give us 0 rating option..i think we should have -ve rating option...

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    You have a XBox, TT table, and carrom. Also a music room.
    You get a lot of responsibilities early on. They think they work on agile methodology, so the engineer does everything from design to architecture, from coding to testing. Good for engineers for the first 1 year, if they have no girl/boyfriends, strict no no for MBAs with any self-respect or ambition.

    Cons

    You do not need to write more if you just look at the fake 5-6 reviews below written by the company itself.
    If a company writes fake reviews to maintain its ratings, what do you think about it?

    Advice to Management

    In one of the fake reviews below you have written "Advice to management: Thank you for being too kind to us". At least use some brains while writing the fake reviews, they are so obvious!
    Just pause a while and think what you are doing so wrong that you have to write fake reviews just to maintain your image.
    Also stop blaming your problems on others. In another fake review you write "Most of the people joining are fresh MBAs or fresh engineers who do not know how corporate world works. So make them read some blogs". Sir, you do not know how corporate world works. Don't blame freshers, MAQ is not a corporate company, it is a collection of individuals who are there to do ego massage of the owner. In no corporate company, the IT team is made to fix personal laptops of the owner's children!

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of

    Cons

    1. Long Working hours. You have to spend at-least 60+ hours a week & still you won't be satisfying your managers expectations.
    2. Work Politics. Even after working for like 60+ hours a week, you won't be given that much importance in your projects.
    3. Low Salaries/ Increments (Everything depends on your manager & that you can only get by flattering them)
    4. No bus/cab service. But when you raise the same concern in front of your manager/HR/Admins, they will start talking about company policies.
    5. No cafeteria. They have P1 to be said as cafeteria
    6. No women security (as per company policies there will be no cabs after 10PM)
    7. No time given to developers to explore new ideas because of their "AGILE model".
    8. The “real” conversations happen offline, rather than face-to-face
    9. Lack of healthy debate makes it difficult to build new processes and products.
    10. This company is like a goat race where employees are focusing on flattering Team leads. Team leads on focusing on flattering Managers and the cycle goes on...

    Advice to Management

    As I earlier said: "Nothing that I can think of" coz they are the reason for above mentioned cons. This is the reason why people have started leaving and the average experience of the company has dropped down to 9 months.

    Pros

    Easy work. Mostly involves searching the internet for ready made solutions and copy-pasting.

    Cons

    Really long hours as part of the work culture.
    Cargo programming is the norm here.
    Pay is simply not competitive.
    No real challenge in work, can be done by anyone with basic understanding of computers.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay.
    Start hiring from non computer science backgrounds as none of the work involves any deep understanding of computer sciences.
