    Pros

    The technology and the people behind it are top-notch.

    Cons

    Development was a little slow to roll out the solution and get it to market. The marketing and messaging needed a big boost.

    Pros

    Free fruits at 11 o clock.
    Good lunch and dinner parties when Higher management comes down to India.
    Cant think of anything apart from this.

    Cons

    Worst Management who think about filling their pockets and looting who are funding the company.
    No respect for employees who put in their heart and soul in their work.
    Technology is below standard and dont get to learn anything
    Waste of time and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the product rather than filling your pockets with money.
    You are being a failure by selling the company.
    Leave the company and retire rather than playing with the lives of many engineers.

    Pros

    Working with smart, good people. They tried to make it fun, although the workload made that really difficult.

    Cons

    Terrible, bloated management; lack of vision means products with no customers, and product releases canceled. Management team runs from one opportunity to another. Agile process was never followed and used mostly for cover. Engineering runs rogue at times. No specs. Teams in India are not keep abreast of changes. Documentation is not reviewed.

    Advice to Management

    I have no clue, except to get rid of the managers who make everyone miserable.

    Top management and the current CEO is totally out of the touch with the reality. They are just collection of puppies running around with no strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe it is time to consider retiring.
