    Top management at times may expect too much from employees....but i guess that is valid

    Pros

    There is so much innovation around if you are working at PurpleTalk. It's a place where management will listen to all your crazy ideas and help you implementing it. It's a small but very high pace company where you'll have something new to learn on daily basis. PurpleTalk cares about employee engagement and appreciation. They are always ready to hear back and take corrective actions if needed.

    Cons

    Don't really have any, It's just that company is young too and is also learning with us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the momentum, your employees are your biggest strength.

    I have been working at PurpleTalk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’ve been working here for close to two years now and every week has been an opportunity for new learning, and working with some of the smartest colleagues in both India and the US. Having a business background has provided me the opportunity to work directly with the senior management and middle management both for building the business as well as executing projects.

    The interactions I have with senior management have been constantly opening up new ways of thinking and a lesson in decision making without too much information. Working on projects of profound importance, and gaining the trust of some very senior client managers are moments that fill me with pride. I feel very lucky to be here and experience such rich work satisfaction.

    Cons

    None that I can think of really. I’m pumped up here. But some people here put in a lot more effort while others revel in the shade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can see that the company is hungry for growth and a lot of great initiatives have been taken up lately. While efforts are being taken to communicate the new strategy to the company at large, most of the messaging remains at the middle management level and is not tracking down to the most junior people. More efforts should be taken to communicate it so everyone is inspired.

    I worked at PurpleTalk full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A down to earth Founder, Mr. Sridhar and CEO, Mr. Bharath and Senior Engineers like Mr. Hari and Mr. RK. Can't imagine anything more…

    Cons

    All the positive reviews here seems to be paid. You can refer to any real employee for genuine review.
    1. No career growth - Management never bothers about career growth of employees.
    2. Absolutely no career growth - No career growth until and unless you are a favorite.(performance hardly matters)
    3. Horrible pay hikes - A few handful of favorite employees get much more than market value and the rest get much less than market value.(Many a times Rs 1000 as annual hike)
    4. Hell lot of politics - If you are good in politics and flattering the senior management, its the right place for you.
    5. Favoritism and Nepotism - If you are not favorite then you are an outcast.
    6. No Perks - Don't even dare to think about that.
    7. False Promises - Management will try to lurk you with false promises which are never fulfilled.
    8. Illogical and Brutal Project Managers - They just want to see the world burning.
    9. No Transparent policies - Policies gets varied throughout the year and is different for different employees.
    10. Human Machine - Humans are treated as robot, they want the employees to work for 24 hours a day.
    11. No good Social Events - Introverts will like this place.
    12. Excuses - They have excuses for all the above.
    13. There is no option for 0 stars, so I gave 1 star to all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to treat humans as humans, and be human. You ain't a capitalist Government. Everything can be rectified, taking steps to mending things early will be a wise idea.

    I have been working at PurpleTalk full-time

    Pros

    Fun place to work - people are friendly and helpful.
    They allow balance of both autonomy and responsibility.
    They provide honest, non-judgemental feedback and are equally forthcoming in praise/appreciation of extra effort.
    Young, energetic culture that is youth - driven.

    Cons

    Still a little unstructured, a little "rough around the edges."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the young, energetic, entrepreneurial vibe going.
    Keep appreciating your people and keep helping them grow.
