    Pros

    - Great learning experience for freshers
    - Great work culture
    - Free lunch
    - Free CCD coffee machine
    - Work form home and no in and out time

    Cons

    - No value for experience.. freshers are godfather
    - You will feel like stagnant at some point of time no learning curves
    - Bad projects and their structure
    - No one their who has experience in particular technology or who can help you out if you are blocked.
    - Clients are good
    - Frequently changing company policies
    - No HR panel hire even I can say sleeping set of people who are handling of this department who doesn't know whom to reply and how to reply and when to reply.
    - Reputation, noting to say about this even I can laugh on this where company organise an irrelevant event out of technology and ask people to like company facebook or any social media site page to keep increasing their count.
    - No business analyst even they dont have technical architect people who joined as freshers are all in one.
    - No specific sales department.
    - No corporate feelings moreover you will feel working with a govt organization.
    - Overnight thinking of changing a service based company to product based company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - CEO alone can't take always right decisions, please have a good set of people for managing company details.
    - Also please respect your employees who are the real assets for you.

    Pros

    If you want to learn and learn more. If you are capable of handling pressure then this is the place for you. You have to keep your performance very high. If you are not a good learner then you'll be exited.

    Cons

    Too much pressure. One person handling entire project and being sole responsible if anything goes wrong. Obviously you have to be manager's favorite or else it''ll create hardship for you to survive in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on employee's work life balance and be certain with you policies. Do not change/create policies just like that and change them the very next month.

    Pros

    Only pay is good compard to tcs infy, also maky you feel they pay you for free any you are not deserving

    Cons

    Evrything, environment. The target people and fire them in any way. Exprinc people treated bad way. They say they dont fire but they do always. Come up with new ways to demoral employees and fire them or reduce the pay. Why increas pay and then reduce? No job securty, you fired when project over. Only talk big, not caring for employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people nicely not as dogs. Change envirment to good one so that people r happy. Dnt come up with new new stupid ideas to hurt and lay off employee. Freshrs are not evrything without experienc guys, remembr 5 yr exprienc guy equal to 4 freshrs

    I have been working at Mindfire Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nothing that stands out from other companies.

    Cons

    A lot problems and issues..
    1. You can be removed anytime from the smooth going project and some people with less experience will be added to destroy the project and client.
    2. They never considers employee's desire to work on any specific technology. Anybody can be added to anything on any time.
    3. A 8-10 yrs exp. who used to lead team of 15-20 people is suddenly asked to write code.

    Nothing is fixed/static here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the need of Lead, Manager, HR etc. specific roles as big enterprises are also following the hierarchy. Don't try to be the CEO, HR, ProjectManager, Developer, Finance all at the same time.
    Try to find out the reason why so many people are leaving the company ?
