    I worked at Pratham Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible timings, once used to be a great place to work & learn but presently I don't see it.

    Cons

    CEO is not looking into the company as he used to do earlier. No focused sales & marketing efforts. The growth in 14 years is not as good as other company's, because the top level of management is same old and they don't want any other to come at their place. After sometime you cannot see your growth with this company & that is why people leave.

    Many top clients have taken back their projects from them due to poor work. Also if the employee is leaving then they tell them that if you leave then we will provide negative feedback to the other company. If you want to retain someone then you should give them nice salary rather than giving threat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO should look around as he was doing earlier. Also, if some experienced person is leaving then they should retained them. They have to change the mentality that if a person with 5 Lakhs package is leaving then we can hire 2 person in the same salary to carry out the same task.

    I have been working at Pratham Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Find a good working environment and flexi working hours

    Cons

    If you have good approach in higher management (personal relations/relatives) then only you'll get benefits like salary and promotions otherwise they believe everyone is working for charity. They expect from employees for good work but they forgot their appreciations specially in yearly performance review. Normally best employees can get max 7% hike in 3 years and others who have a good approach in management can get promotions and hike twice in a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check out the market outside and see their are many other organizations who respect their employees work and provide good opportunities

    I worked at Pratham Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I don't think there is any Pros in this place from career and growth perspective.

    Cons

    They will lure you as per their requirement without telling you the full story. They care a damm about their employees and when an employee try to rebuff, they will show the 1 year bond which they made you sign at the time of joining. I've never worked nor heard about an organization who will make their employees rub against the wall for 15 hours a day. Their management don't have the skill set or courage to put through their issues in front of client. Though my career only span for about 5 Years, and I've worked with few start ups company's which have made their name in Gartner's Magic Quadrant, but never seen such incapable management. All they care is employees weekly time sheets so that they can bill the client timely :)

    They have no growth what so ever. All they have is the retention project work which is the livelihood of their existence. Their Sales and Marketing is SIMPLY INCAPABLE of bringing any Enterprise Level Customer. Its been more than 10 years since PSI inception and still they are still stuck in lower middle tier section. They've filled junk in their so called management team who don't know the definition of growth. I've witnessed their best brains moving to company like Oracle, TCS, Sapient, HCL and including ME to Infosys, but still these junk guys don't understand the value of their employees. They don't recognize that, its the employee who work at the granular level and is responsible for the success of an organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr Puneet Mittal, though I'vent met you in person but I've heard very highly about you SIR. Those peers and the best brains who have already left your organization were unanimous about one thing....."THIS COMPANY USED TO BE THE BEST ONE IN JAIPUR TILL YOU WERE THERE". Though I never experienced anything close to that, but I believe those peers. All I would say is, bring back those old culture, may be you again become the best workplace in Jaipur.

    Pros

    Great place to work, great culture, employee friendly policies. flexi timings. These are the top reasons, why I will recommend this company.If you are doing good work, it will be well recognized.

    Cons

    No focused sales & marketing efforts. Jumps into any opportunity without any direction.The growth in 13 years is not as good as other company's, because of this reason only. after sometime you cannot see your growth with this company & that is why people leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top management should focus on growth & business in a focused way rather than on small matters.

    Great working environment, work life balance and friendly top management makes this company a great place to work.Learning curve will be very steep and if you are a perfomer you will grow like anything.

    Processes are required to be more structured and smooth. Aggressive marketing approach is required to get more business especially from foreign markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one can doubt that culture vise it is one of the best company to work but there is always a scope for improvement in certain areas.

    I have been working at Pratham Software part-time

    Pros

    Variable pay 100%...
    Flexi working hours....
    Work life balance...

    Cons

    Lack of growth...
    Lack of experties...
    No onsite opportunities...
    Senior technical persons are not upto the mark... they are like Fixed deposits.... They don't try to improve ourself and don't give the fair chance to their team/junior workers..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Required a pure technical person like CTO, management persons shouldn't interfere into the technical matters.. Marketing team should more focused to get good and more projects.
