    Pros

    You get to learn a lot of stuff and manage time. That's it.

    Cons

    The HR team has people signing up to GlassDoor and provide high ratings to skew the overall ratings. Need Evidence? Just see the ratings trend and note that the ratings suddenly shoot up on May 2014. If only more tools were available, it would be clear that all the 5-stars would have been awarded at the same time frame. Trust me, you don't want to work here. One of most caustic work environments that you can see. I almost laughed out of loud while reading work/life balance and senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people.

    I worked at Photon Infotech full-time

    Pros

    The best thing is the cutting edge work Photon does for top clients. They pay you based on industry experience. Good onsite opportunities, good growth prospects as the company is growing at a frenetic pace. You get a chance to work on iOS and android projects and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Expectation are set high right from the day one and you will have work pressure to perform. Though it gets difficult only if you dont perform ;) Also dont expect coffee vending machines and recreational areas.

    Pros

    A lot of diversity in the work, they will give you the opportunity to handle the most amazing clients ever and they will give you the edge since they always introduce us to the newest technologies in the market. Photon values results that is why the whole work process revolves around quality and results; with that I can say that there are always some friendly competition in the office.

    Cons

    No coffee machines. There has to be coffee somewhere in the office.

    Advice to Management

    We love tea and all, but we kind of need some coffee too.
