    Pros

    There are so many pros in working with Optra Technologies that this place might serve to be a bit insufficient. If someone wants to degrade his/her dignity or has no other work in this world can definitely join this company. Also, if you are eager to loose your self-respect and image you may go ahead and join Optra. Not only this, the company also provides ample of opportunities to spoil your career with no growth and is highly capable of making you unemployed at any point of time. The top management is pretty much confident about its rubbish operations and narrow-mindedness, neither anyone can ask question their decision nor can they stand any truth about them.

    Cons

    The word "Cons" would be an understatement for Optra. To appreciate this company I would require stronger vocabulary which I cannot use here. But still here are few:
    1. No process being followed.
    2. Candidates being hired but there are no projects for them.
    3. No value or importance for talent, hard-work, commitment and pro-activeness.

    Advice to Management

    You people are going great....One more step and you surely will land into your grave - your destiny!!

    Pros

    The only learning part at Optra is due to the interaction with highly reputed and best in class clients in the field of Life science, Healthcare and Medical devices.
    If you are not in a client facing role, there is nothing this company can offer you, for self- growth or career growth.

    Cons

    Everything about working for Optra is a challenge!
    Bad top management - who thinks everyone is disposable
    There is no regard for talent, hard work and honesty

    Advice to Management

    Talented and multi-functional resources are like rare and endangered species, treat them with due respect, both in cash (emoluments) and kind (appreciation for work)

    Pros

    None. There cannot be any pros working in an unethical organization. There is no core value system in any division of the organization.

    Cons

    Unethical behaviour percolates top down. The CEO wouldnt bat an eyelid running over any other organizations IP and claiming it to be their own in-house in-built solution. The HR,Finance and other divisions are namesake and work at the whims and fancies of the CEO

    Advice to Management

    Please shut shop at the earliest. There is no place in the corporate world for thugs.

    Pros

    Nothing good you feel if you are out of your mind and find this company good. Hurray!! They serve tea to employees for free.

    Cons

    Company now has less than 90 employees. Last year, same time it was around 150. No PF amount by company paid to employees. no PF accounts opened still after one year. Cheating with freshers, juniors, seniors, everyone with regard to money, designation and performance hike. Cheating with reputed and established clients by faking up the resources. COO was fired last month. Advice to new people, in-spite of so much bad reviews, why still you go there and make hell out of your life? Opening a new company called Optra Technologies which will be worse than this. Choose your future guys, get out of it well in time.

    Advice to Management

    Till how many days you will fool people with such tricks? This will surely not take you up wherever you go.
