    Pros

    The company has offices in cool cities

    Cons

    They has no respect for its employees and the president has been quoted as comparing its worker to workers at McDonald's. Unethical and deceptive hiring practices, messy business practices, unorganized, oppressive work environment. All positive reviews are false. Threats of suing employees. Don't wast your time look a little harder for another company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to programming and immigrant labor.

    The company has limited number of offices across India. I am from Hyderabad and would appreciate Photon opening office in Hyderabad. Also parking is a headache in DLF.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
