    I worked at Sify full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Sify company has many other subsidiary which you can potentially move and secure the job if one is not doing good.

    Cons

    Projects were reducing day by day that is very insecure as an employee. Teams were really small and management hardly share the real progress of company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has to be more transparent with the company performance and help employees move from one subsidiary to another.
