    Pros

    Good work life balance.

    Good non-monteary benefits (HR policies) - insurance etc.

    Open culture.

    Decent work.

    Free Beer on Fridays.

    Good place for beginners, lot of activities.

    Cons

    Pay is not so great for the kind of work.

    Not much of recognition. Recognition is like a business, recognize to retain.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay. It sucks especially for old timers.

    Blame your self also for not so good results.

    Pros

    Beer Bash
    Flexible Timings
    Work from Home facility

    Cons

    Layoff fear every year
    In India only Bug fixing work no programming work
    Whether you perform well or not, because of CEO's wrong steps you may loose your job in layoff
    WORST PLACE TO WORK

    Advice to Management

    Because of your wrong decisions in business you force the blame to employees and do layoff, try to layoff CEO in those cases because he projected the non achievable profits. CEO should learn how to make money instead of how to save money by layoff. ITS WORST PLACE TO WORK.

    Advice to Management

    Clean lower, mid and higher mid management. They will eat up the technical and best employer reputation of the company.
