    Senior software engineer @ Capital IQ Hyderabad: This can be a good first job

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsThe work culture is more like a young startup. One has the independence to propose his solutions and implement them after taking feedback. Such Entrepreneurial traits are strongly valued and encouraged.

    ConsWithin 1-2 years, one will get a hang of the nature of work and it becomes easy to solve. After 1-2 years, it is difficult to get any challenging work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHands on managers who can jump into work will offer much help to employees compared to those who only know projects at theoretical level. I happened to work with a mix of both and the former ones offered more help in shaping me.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
