    I worked at Monsoon Multimedia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    located in San Mateo behind Marriotts. easy commute. a few real talents on the team. learn a lot from these guys. quiet office location

    Cons

    day-to-day management is non-existing. you do what you want, until the next totally un-coordinated fire drill from chairman. exec team spends lavishly on themselves, fancy travel and dining. no respect for share holders nor employees. get out quickly while you can

    Advice to Management

    get real and get a life


  2. Get out as quickly as you can

    Pros

    HQ is located in a small non-descriptive office at 101/92 junction next to Marriots hotel. People can do whatever they want, or whatever they don't want.

    Cons

    Senior leadership (Chairman, CEO and GM) is sadly focused on their own welfare instead of helping the company to grow. A shame to see some real talents still sticking around.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on yourself. Start focusing on shareholder value, employee growth and marketing potential. Lastly, stop wasting all the money on first-class flights and fancy 5-star hotels

    Pros

    Very good work Culture. Highly experienced senior managers with depth domain knowledge and always helping , freedom to discuss the problem across the teams. Management always appreciate your suggestion and understand your concerns, time to time all hands meeting with senior management and CEO for updates.. yearly appraisal with good salary hike

    Cons

    focusing only on projects and technology , less effort on company website and branding !

    Advice to Management

    need to focus on marketing and should invest on company website and branding.

    Pros

    True geniuses will love to work here since there is a lot of room for R&D. Flexible work timings. Very balanced work pressure. Management with a heart, they understand your problems - when in need! Good work culture and interpersonal relationship.

    Cons

    Only a good talent can hire another good talent, previously this company made a lot of hiring mistakes. Wrong engineers in the wrong department, position and work - somewhat collectively responsible for the quality of work and culture.

    Advice to Management

    Too many projects, too much work, its easy to get defocused. Have separate managers and engineers for separate projects. Bring in some market research and analysis team. Prevent non-technical people taking engineering decisions!

    I worked at Monsoon Multimedia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible timings. Meal coupons. Tax savings on fuel and phone. Good salary (deduct the PF coz they never pay it).

    Cons

    1. Deducts PF but do not credit PF to account. People who have left 4 years ago are still fighting to get their PF money 2. Will not pay income tax on time. Income tax of year 2010-11 was payed after 1 year. 3. Work pressure. People have to work 24 hrs straight sometimes to meet deadlines 4. Horrible code quality. Lacking experienced developers. most of the code is written by freshers. One line change may cascade to 10 new bugs. 5. Management is ill mannered and will swear and shout at you. 6. Managers avoid taking responsibility of their mistakes and play blame games and may get you fired. Last year a poor fresher got fired just because of that. 7. Leaving the co will be a nightmare. They will not give you the experience certificate easily and in some case they wrote ill words about the employee on the certificate. 8. Your stuff might get stolen if you leave it on your desk. I saw two cases of mobile phone theft.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing false business and concentrate on building a company.


  8. Fraud company

    Pros

    They give a laptop to work from home even though there culture is factory labourer type .there managers figure some artificial excuse to get the employee to the office on weekends

    Cons

    All I can say is that I still havent got my final settlement since 1.5 yrs of leaving the company The company didnt pay me salary during notice period and even after that a huge percent of my settlement ammount is pending since 1.5 years. And they say they have been out of funds, yet continue to post openings etc and operate. Even Lehmann paid there layed-off employees there dues.One can say that even without thinking and facts.. But for monsoon multimedia which often gets stuck with Tax departments or Free software foundations , one cannot say the same..Funds or not , Fraud definitely resides in the company. Management believes that they can do whatever they want and have no need of justifying their decisions and discussing them with the employees and so do the long-standing senior employees management has no idea of the status of the product and employees do whatever they want (learning from the management which doesnt feel a need to give reason) Have mostly seen blame game and fights rather than work and co-operation,Most employees aren't like that its just that management pressurizes and creates a negative environment Management is people oriented not work oriented ; if a problem comes up rather than analyzing it , coming up with strategy or plan they have the attitude of pressurizing the employees rather than investigating reasons etc My manager discouraged me frm sending communications about product info to "outside" dev center or someone higher than him Acted like a monitor forcing his wrong ways , decisions etc. Lone savior for them is that when I joined them there staff had gotten reduced due to bad economy etc so maybe best talent wasnt there..But from there history and the level of staff theyhad it wasn't a very impressive reading.

    Pros

    Its a US based product development company which deals in Timeshifting and Placeshifting devices. Only one line to say about this. "World's First "All-In-One Video Product" Schedule, Record & Watch TV On Smartphones And iPads - Record Like A TiVo Watch YouTube On Your TV - Watch Video, Photos From Cameras, PC's, Smartphones On Your TV"

    Cons

    Only one down side of the company is that there is no work timings. Some time we have to work in lengthy shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing everything is smooth and fine.
