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

    Pros

    Nothing is good about this company.NO Hope and NO Motivation and the freshers & laterals are treated very badly.
    Only YES BOSS kind of people are encouraged. There is a lot of favouritism/partiality done by managers towards their pets.

    Cons

    Everything in Sonata Software is bad. There are NO Processes at all. ZERO Motivation at work.
    Lack of professionalism among senior and old resources who consider company as their home turf and play around with new joinees.
    Training Standards are very poor. The management is nerveless and spineless as they can never say NO to clients.
    They just promise a lot to clients & at the end wont be able to deliver on time. Employees are treated as slaves & made to slog for long hrs & sometimes on weekends.
    Some of the managers dont even know how to behave with the employees, they are very rude & they should be given soft skills training. Lot of politics for ONSITE !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The appraisals dont happen at the right time and the increments are negligible. NO value for right skilled people.
    Some of the managers dont even know how to behave with the employees, they are very rude & they should be given soft skills training. Politics for ONSITE should be checked and kept under control

    Its good as you have good work life balance. Though it depends on managers. Good learning as you do end to end implementation. For a fresher, there is a lot to learn.

    Not very good compensation and benefits. No good revisions also. Revision cycle has been postponed, which is not very good for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should think about revising their salary revision policy.
