    Startup Fun Culture with perfect Professionalism and Work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Its the perfect mix of a professional work culture and startup fun. You learn a lot, get mentored a lot, get challenging work but see people full of energy around you playing games, shouting, laughing, throwing jokes, making fun - that is you never get bored.
    There will never be a lack of energy and fun
    There will never be a lack of learning and quality work

    Cons

    Don't go by the negative reviews. I had really low expectations from the company after reading them but am so glad now that I joined it

    Current Employee - Developer/BA/QA/Database Administrator  in  Hyderābād (India)
    Current Employee - Developer/BA/QA/Database Administrator in Hyderābād (India)

    Pros

    Technology team in Hyderabad division works on critical applications of the company, provides excellent growth for the smart and hard working candidates, and has a great work culture. More than 80% of the employees has come out of college over the years and retained by the company, it won't happen with out proper work life balance, work satisfaction. I'm one of them joined here more than 6 years ago from campus.
    Uses latest technology in market.
    Have more recent and exciting technologies and careers in Software industry for future like Data science and the company's culture allows you to move around teams/technologies as long as you've necessary technical and analytical skills.
    Developed many in house and great technologies, like web crawling, SOLR, Vertica.

    Cons

    You'll see colleagues from reputed colleges in India, like IITs and IIITs, NITs. People usually get a bit confused about the popularity of the company, because this company not as famous as amazon, microsoft in India, but its parent company is Standard and Poors, MC Grawhills and quite a famous, good corporate company in United states. So you can carry the brand in future if you will work in US and you'll really get all the benefits of corporate company and product based software company culture here.
    If you're the person who want to seek onsite opportunities, there are no long term onsite opportunities as of today, 2013 March. You will get chance to work for few months like less than 6 in head quarters, New York, Wall street.
