    I have been working at Model N full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to learn and increase the slope of your learning curve, Model N is the place to go. Neither too small, nor too big, just the right size so that you get the benefit of working in a startup type environment without the risk of losing it all. Very entrepreneurial culture, you will never be short of challenging work. Not a place for slackers.

    Cons

    Be ready to give it all, very demanding and challenging and you get recognized by what you deliver, not by your title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should spend more time with team members.

    Pros

    Company is proactively blazing new trails to transform company and create a leading new category. Exciting times. They try to retain some of the good elements of a "startup culture" but infused with benefits of a more established stable company. Best of both worlds.

    Cons

    Strategy and product direction can be ambiguous at times - but that is the nature of an emerging market in transition.

    I worked at Model N full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great work culture, Scope to try out new ideas with in the old framework of their own. Better package for the fresher graduates compared to many others in Hyderabad.

    Cons

    No scope to introduce new technologies as the product is deeply coupled with their own framework. Not so good salary packages for the lateral joiners and no transparent pay check details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technically, Try to introduce new technologies like Hadoop which is very essential in the customer environments to analyse their own data in many ways. Try to change the front end to incorporate HTML5 and try removing flex. Similarly, in the back end, evaluate introducing hibernate.

    On Management side, Be transparent in the package structure, bonus and stock options. Try to balance the package for freshers and laterals. There are instances in which, a four experienced drawing less than a fresher.
