    Good for start-up, but don't stay long in-case you want to grow knowledgeably and monetarily.

    I worked at SQS

    Pros

    Good company to understand different aspects of testing. Good for people who want "Aaraam ki Zindagi", join as a lead or manager and enjoy life.

    Cons

    Kind of projects they have are less technical atleast in Pune office. Compensations are worst, avg take home for fresher is 12-14K per month. The higher band though is not at all impressive. Dirty management politics, 0 visibility into the management affairs. This company is at its downfall with current projects in hand, which are short terms and all major accounts have either taken their business from SQS or have given only the maintenance of the existing work.
    The managers will get the work out of you and then will take you off the project stating Poor Performance. In short, nobody wants to pay for hard work and sincere efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company's growth not only depends on the annual profit it makes, but also on how many good engineers they have in hand. And the later part involves paying a good salary. Consider investing on that as well. Keep simple policies and look for people who are least interested in work and take them off. Else intentionally if you know this and still want to continue this then best of luck.

    I worked at SQS

    Pros

    The money for the role is reasonable.

    Cons

    Company seemed more concerned with selling man days to their clients than actually doing the job. Never seen such poor quality software come out at the end of testing.
