    Pros

    Technically knowledgable colleagues. Reasonably decent technology.

    Cons

    Screwed up management. Screws engineers by making them work day and night without knowing where the market is and what will make money. Focus on filling their pockets and undercutting peers trying to outdo each other. Competing with each other rather than competing with others in the market. Engineering upper management just goes by hearsay thinking that one person can do miracles without knowing what that miracle is supposed to deliver and how it impacts the bottomline.

    Advice to Management

    Does not matter as Boeing said "Enough of this crap.".

    Pros

    1. Knowledgeable colleagues. 2. Good learning opportunity.

    Cons

    1. Work performance was measured in terms of when you come to office and how much time you spend. The time transition time when Symantec bought it, there was no work in office, but, still people are forced to come at 9 a.m. and sit idle. Even if you always deliver your story/work before time, managements sees only when you are coming to office. 2. They say they follow agile. But its just in name. 3. Never understood the QA system. 4. No product sale. 5. Lunch was good in the beginning. Became worst in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Does not matter now. Company got shutdown.


  6. Was a great place to work.

    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

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

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