    Pros

    Amazing leadership, great people, chance to explore creativity, best compensations and fun experience

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

    Top management should be more employee centric

    Pros

    Young company, loads of responsibilities, at the forefront of contemporary technologies compared to other larger companies stuck with decade old thinking. A culture of engineering and products DNA. A very fun, young group.

    Cons

    Can't think of any ( yet )

    Advice to Management

    Lets get the word out! Most companies talk a thousand time more than what they really do. We are building silicon valley class products for our clients right here in H'bad...and I think others should know that.

    Pros

    Get to work on the latest technologies. Glass, Smart Tv, device integration, recommendation engines, internet of things, big data. Name it - there will be a project going on.
    Open and easy going culture. Everyone is approachable and easy going. People can walk into the office in shorts no questions asked.
    Lot of focus and conversations on innovation. The company has been among the first to work on mobile technologies. So there is a lot of depth and understanding as to how these technologies work.
    We've been recently having senior management hold open debates on technology topics, and interviews of experts. Not sure if this happens elsewhere

    Cons

    Some projects can be very difficult with changing requirements at the last minute and this means working late and over weekends for us.

    Advice to Management

    Getting snapshots of other projects every day is good, but for the technical people we want to have more technical sessions on how certain interesting features have been implemented in other projects.

  7. Pay and extra incentives are way too less compared to industry standards

    Pros

    You get to work on good variety of projects. You will always be busy. You get to explore and implement new technologies. Of late, a lot of design workshops, hackathons are being conducted on weekends. Whenever you need any technical help, you can count on people like Hari, RK, Suresh and Kishore.

    Cons

    Resource management is a problem. People learnt the art of snatching resources and getting away with it.
    Some of the internal 'tools' are not really usable.

    Advice to Management

    I like how Mr. Bharat sends out long emails occasionally to the entire company. I wish other upper management people also do take some time and share some of their experiences, tips or potential pitfalls, that would be good. Also, please get rid of Yammer and consider moving to Slack (slack dot com) because emails like "Meeting in the training room now" is a very useless email to have in the inbox and an email like this comes so many times a week as a new email.

    Pros

    I had a lot of fun while I worked here. The projects were always exciting. We were working on projects that were always ahead of time. It used to take take a lot of time to just spell out to my technical buddies working in other companies the significance of what we were doing and why and I was always the coolest guy in my friends circle for working with the latest devices and always being on top of the trending apps and games. I’m currently using one of the apps that I developed daily at work today and its so exciting to share that with my colleagues.

    Cons

    Its an open office environment. Anyone can drop in at your desk or that of your neighbour anytime, and that can be distracting at times. Thats when I started using earphones.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing interesting projects for the teams to work on.

    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 Management

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