    I have been working at Pilani Soft Labs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great working culture
    flat hierarchy model
    great brains to work with

    Cons

    should be workaholic as you'd end up working late nights / weekends (not mandate though :))
    Pay revisions are not at par.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lot of Roumors spreading around - need to spend some time on the team bring back the old glory.
    Enthu missing with lot of employees as there is no senior leadership to take redbus to the next level. Try bring back the talent asap.

    Intenal communication missing. Importance given only to the engineering team and the rest are not considered important by the new Management. Please re-think
