    Pros

    At Photon, you get to work on omnichannel projects for large US clients. It’s a fairly mid size IT company so you will get the opportunity to interact with CTO and CEO of the company and learn about their vision. Best place for an MBA to join as you will be put into leadership positions instantly and will get to handle a small team on your own.

    Cons

    Roles can be flexible and can get confusing, HR should send detailed JDs for each role to avoid confusion. Overall the top management is too busy and can skip town halls sometimes which can be frustrating for employees as the information doesn’t reach them in time

    I worked at Photon Infotech

    Pros

    There is a stiff learning curve and you will learn lots of new technologies on various platforms. The work is result driven so it can be rewarding and engaging. There are a lot of opportunities to grow within the company and you will get good increments if you are a high performer. Onsite opportunities within 2 years depending on your performance.

    Cons

    Roles are flexible and can get confusing at times. There are limited avenues for employees to innovate. There are no coffee machines and limited recreational areas.

    I have been working at Photon Infotech

    Pros

    Being part of Photon Infotech is really a reward on itself. In my time here I was already exposed to many things, from the latest updates to the newest mobile OS and with how to handle the newest devices. Photon always makes sure that we are well informed so every day could be different and that kind of variety in workplace is always healthy for me. I just hope that I could perform much better in the near future, since Photon is a result driven culture, there will be always some traces of stress and urgency, but the rewards are pretty amazing.

    Cons

    Definitely not a place for the average. More role clarity is required for employees to understand their roles and perform better. No Coffee Machines. Lack of space in general for any recreational activities.

    I have been working at Photon Infotech

    Pros

    The work is very challenging. I get motivated in a daily basis because the work is something that I consider to be one of the most fulfilling things that I do. You get to working on cutting edge technology on all web and mobile platforms. Good onsite and growth opportunities as they are expanding big time.

    Cons

    The office seriously lacks coffee vending machines and recreational areas for employees. Also there should be impromptu cabs for employees who leave late.

    Cons

    The work can be a little stressful and fast, but it is rewarding. Lack of recreational areas and coffee machines.

    I have been working at Photon Infotech

    Pros

    The place is so intimidating, there are a lot of things going on and at first it will be overwhelming for a newbie like me, but they assured me that I will be a productive part of the team in no time and with the help of my team mates I handled myself pretty well. They gave me different projects to work on, some of the clients are pretty big, and I always felt like they geared me to be a productive member of the team. Photon is a good place for ambitious and highly self motivated people.

    Cons

    No coffee machines and lack of employee engagement activities.

    Pros

    Flexibility in terms of roles. You can move from being a project manager to delivery manager to an account manager, it all depends on your performance and how politically smart you are. Good onsite opportunities for developers and middle management. They pay above the average industry standards. Great work culture and a young and vibrant team.

    Cons

    Some of their training methods and scheduling could use some work but all in all Photon have the whole process under control.

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities here at Photon, the best is the opportunity to interact directly with clients, some of their clients are on the Fortune 500 list. The pay is good above industry average. Photon is a good place to test both your skills and your resolve when it comes to the mobile technologies.

    Cons

    No coffee machine in the office, I am used to them from my previous employer. Lack of employee engagement initiatives.

    I have been working at Photon Infotech full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The folks on the ground in the US are outstanding, including working with clients and interacting with each other. There's a sense of camaraderie and purpose when it comes to these folks.

    Cons

    Fundamentally, this is a horrific company when it comes to a variety of things. Pay is significantly below market standards. The benefit package is extremely basic (medical, dental, vision). They've just launched a 401(k), but without a match. You receive a bank of PTO days to be used for *all* purposes: vacation, sick, bereavement, with no ability to take unearned PTO. The main office in India have horrible communication skills, and have less of a priority than is necessary. They still consider themselves a start-up, despite being in business for over fours. Absolutely no flexibility when it comes to working from home and the like. Promotions/reviews use the abhorrent stack ranking system, encouraging back-biting and attacking other coworkers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a native English speaker to help clearly communicate information. Increase compensation and benefit levels. Make time-off policies more modern (this was the first job in my professional life that didn't offer paid jury duty leave).
