    This company is bad lately

    Module Lead (Current Employee)

    ProsCan learn a lot especially if you are interested in embedded field

    Cons- Lot of regionalism/favouritism from the people from neighbouring states. Local people are minorities!
    - People manipulate things based on their position and influence.
    - Elite group people does not know the meaning of the word professionalism.
    - Promotion means more responsibility and negligible increase in salary.
    - Some of my friends told about cost cutting. I can saw there is nothing cut the cost other than remove the toilet paper(even this is not available on saturday and sundays). People can imagine how bad facilities can be.
    - Non revenue generating employees are treated like labourers.
    - Many a times management policies are like penny wise pound foolish
    - Company never thinks human resource is more valuable than anything else.

    Advice to Senior Management- I do not know what is company's ambition/vision about running the company. But if they run the way there are running now, either it will closed and will not grow any further.
    - Please run supermarket like supermarket and not road side stall.
    - Value all your employees from sweeper to CEO. Please understand that everyone has a role to play for a company to run smoothly.
    - You should be ready to spend on employee today to get x times results tomorrow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I really spoiled my career by joining this company

    Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsThere is Nothing Much as a pro. If you are a freshers you can learn a lot, But you have to compromise your salary you get 10K in your contract period Note they may extend contract as they will.

    ConsWorst Management,
    Variable component in salary is very much we only get 70 % of salary in hand
    Lot or pressure and stress, you are expected to do 2 month of work in 15 days including sat and sundays,
    No appreciation for your efforts
    Lot of cost cutting No Job security

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease learn how to run a company!! You don't make money by stealing the employee salary you people do it by doing a good business.

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

    Do not spoil your career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood for freshers as they can spend their learning time here

    ConsIf you are a HR professional and has an ambition to grow in your career please DO NOT JOIN mistral. The Management is happy enough to take any basic degree holder they don't expect you to add value to the system. Merely 'Coordinators" they require at all levels in HR.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter close down your HR department and spare the HR professionals.

    Good Company for Starters

    Design Engineer (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsIts a good place to start your career. Decent pay packages and Good work. Learn a lot in short time. Allows for good work life balance. The seior people (6+ years experience) will find it to their liking.

    ConsSlow growth. You can grow faster in designation and pay once you go out. The company has bad employee retention rate. Mid-seniors are usually having better growth else where.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-work on the growth part of employees with 2-4 years of experience in the company.

    a good place to learn but only if in the right team

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsExcellent opportunities
    teams work independently when assigned a task
    Process followed is very good
    Very friendly set of people
    senior management seems to care about the employees

    Conspoor orientation given
    Expectations not explained properly
    employees strenghts not recognised
    food is not available for people working late
    prejudiced treatment towards the ladies by a few middle management people

    Advice to Senior Managementin my opinions the senior management is doing a good job and mine is a problem with my manager. the only way i would see this change is by the lower senior management having a talk with the leads to check if the employee is happy. as i was out of office for some time due to a health issue i have been ridiculed and been reported to the senior management as ineffective. i have been badly treated and i wish there was a mechanism to not let this happen.

    As a fresher, you learn a lot of things here. Good place to start off a career.

    Design Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsVery good learning atmosphere.
    Flexible timings.
    Very few restrictions.
    A feeling that you are an integral part of the project you are working on.

    ConsHectic work schedules very often.
    Not much emphasis on personal growth from company side.
    Struggles to keep the work-life balance. Very few team outings, not many team building activities.
    Salary a little bit on the lower side compared to the work done.
    Appraisal process, in many cases, does not reflect the work done by the employee and lacks transparency in this regard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA bit more transparency is required and also, more emphasis should be given for personal growth of employees.
