    Pros

    Get your hands dirty - really dirty and learn all you can on your own. Do not expect the company to provide a professional environment. If you go to work from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm - while you are still young - they will provide you with smooth passage. But do not - DO NOT - take any of their compliments seriously - they will throw you out when they find a bootlicking lackey to replace you with.

    Cons

    Bad customer - with no s/w knowledge - they can't tell good code from bad - and insist on not changing anything. Same true of the inhouse tech leads. They are all google dependant coders. Absolutely lacking knowledge of good practices.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a good job - good pretenstions company.

    Pros

    Good work life balance unless your client is happy or you not associated with the short duration projects. Homely atmosphere and most of the people know each other by name. Good company if you're planning for further study or want to spend more time with friends and families.

    Cons

    No growth, Small team size and projects are heading without proper or no process. So in most of the cases it becomes a vicious cycle. Appreciation and recognition will only happen if your manager is in a good position in the company, as managerial powers are not properly distributed and only some people and their team enjoy that and rest remain as spectator.

    Advice to Management

    If you are really want to get back the old glorious days then you have work hard and you have to give priorities to the eligible employees. You must not judge the performance of the employee based on project account discrimination. Be professional and act like so.

    Pros

    Good for the freshers.
    Good working environment

    Cons

    Very bad senior management, they don't know how to treat an employee, they will behave like a slave. The reason is they are old and don't have any future thinking and if you suggest something then you will be punished diplomatically. After all these pain if you want to leave the company then they will treat you very badly, you have fight to get your release paper, which is professionally they should give you, some time they will ask you to give money to get the release document. If you are employed in USA then there is no chance to get all these, and yes you will also loose you last paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to CEO that please change the senior management and take one to one meeting with some senior employee to find the issue of the company growth.


  11. A friendly place to work.

    Pros

    Being a small company, any employee gets a chance to be loaded simultaneously with various different types of assignments. If you are good at multitasking and are able to spend a lot of time at the office, you stand to gain a lot by way of experience.

    Cons

    There is a rampant culture of favoritism and groupism. If you're lucky to have latched on to the right boss, then your career is made.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more neutral and just. Try to notice and appreciate the major contribution put in by silent workers, who dont belong to any boss's clique or coterie and who diligently slog on to put in all the major back-breaking work, while smooth talking slippery types who happen to be sycophants of some powerful boss, steal all the credit and rewards.
