    I have been working at Schakra full-time

    Pros

    Technically knowledgeable folks in management, who are hands-on with the projects and mentors the employees at different levels and across various roles. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Limited technical exposure to just the Microsoft stack for the most part, which limits the opportunities to delve into multiple things though it helps that the company works with a lot of Microsoft groups.

    A company that values total quality of life of the employees

    I have been working at Schakra

    Pros

    Schakra values total quality of life of its employees. All the benefits offered at Schakra speak this loud and clear. The core intention of the benefits is to enable employees become financially indepdent to support them and their families without any fear of losing a job - e.g. excellent medical plans, long term savings in terms of 401K, whole life insurance, convenience at home with paid internet and phone, heath and wellness benefits for the entire family, child education programs and many more! No one can ask for more caring from an employer!

    All the people who work at the company are very smart. It is a very competitive enviornment (healthy competition) and exciting to spend your typical day in. There is not one day where the job is not challenging.

    Cons

    Can't think of any really ... Well, the heater should be switched on during weekends... whenever I drop in for an hour or two, it gets very cold!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be transparent with employees and increase the level of communication.
