    I worked at Monotype full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary (for some time), few good technical people (many already left).

    Cons

    The top management is flawed in India and is very mediocre
    Abusive language is prominent in the office. Not at all a good place for female workers, feels very unsafe.
    Highly political environment and technical people are treated like slaves and trash
    Hiring practices are poor and salary is not a secret.
    Managers have full freedom to go and come at anytime. Director comes sparsely and has no inkling of whats going on in the office. Very poor technical competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring some professionalism to the Indian management.

    Pros

    Nice company, people and facility. Really good benefits, decent pay. Manager and team are great and the environment is flexible. Very pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    Interview process with HR was not great. Recruiter seemed impatient. It took several mo. from initial interview to time I got hired with no real updates from recruiter/benefits person. Calls were not returned. Just not professional experience. Experience with person was better after I started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you understand how HR treats potential employees.

    I have been working at Monotype full-time

    Pros

    Value of talent and innovation,
    Lots of opportunities and vast scope for growth,
    Lots of leaves :) (I never felt like deficient for leaves here),
    Lots of co-curricular options,
    Flexible timing with fixed core hours(10 - 4)
    Learning and development sessions for all employees.
    Higher management is very easily approachable.

    Best Part : All the employees in company are really talented, hard working and fun loving which results in a very happy and healthy work environment.

    All together, my decision to join here was apt as I always wished to work with a company where I could have freedom to work and could enjoy my assignments. Lot of good things are present which we could not find in most of IT companies in Noida.

    Cons

    Only the professionals with high caliber and talent are getting recruited so their recruitment standards are quite higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep doing:
     1. All the good things they are doing
     2. Supporting their employees
     3. Maintaining quality of work

There's definitely opportunity there. The culture is diverse. The corporation has high ethical standards. It was a fun company to work for!!

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, strong management that cares, and fonts are fun! Pay and benefits were great and the work environment is flexible and easy going.

    Cons

    For a smaller company, spread all over the globe and they haven't adequately invested in the right technologies to ensure the right connectors for global teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the workforce and take the time to hear their thoughts and ideas.
