    I worked at Sonim Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The non-upper management employees are great people. I'm talking about your run of the mill employee, not C- or VP- level. - free lunch Fridays (when they can afford it) - chill vibe (very relaxed)

    Cons

    That's it for pros.... Cons: - they don't have money. They defer salaries all the time. It was there when I was there and I've heard very recently this is still the case. - CEO needs someone to reign him in. He wants to invest money they don't have in projects that don't result in sales. Essentially throwing money out the window. - there's suspicion that there's something shady going on behind the scenes... I can't imagine how these folks are able to continue getting more and more funding from investors for a dying company with an unmarketable product. Do not come here. This is a fair warning. Every person who works here knows it's a joke and wants to leave. DO NOT COME HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the CEO. Why hasn't the board done this already?!

    I have been working at Sonim Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    An open work environment and team-spirit permeate the day-to-day work experience. From the CEO on down there is a "family" feeling and a sense of inclusion. Every work function has a clear understanding of who our customers are and that we're all in it together to make great products for these very special people. It is easy to be proud of what we do. We're growing and releasing exciting new products in markets around the world. Its an exciting time.

    Cons

    We're a smaller company competing with giants in the cellphone and mobile radio marketplace. Our competitors have more resources and we have to do more with less. We can't always do the things that we want to do to grow the company. Prioritization and compromise are often necessary. As a start-up, we work hard. Work / life balance will suffer from time to time, its the cost of being in a high-growth company

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on preserving the unique culture as we grow. It would be a pity to lose what makes us special.

    Pros

    The employees care a lot about office culture and feel like a family. Scrappy atmosphere, everyone works hard and is committed to the work they do. Friday lunches are great.

    Cons

    Since everyone in the office is so close, there could be potential for some people to be a poor culture fit with the company. Important to get an understanding of the culture before committing.

    Pros

    Good snacks, TT tables, salary some what good

    Cons

    No learning, junk test plans, it's already in lost because of this test plan poor technicality, work from only for leads, leads are egoistic, not even graduate from an average university. Good for fresher, good salary

    Advice to Management

    Sincere advice to Sonim management and QA managers--as a technical lead try to study some thing about testing online rather watching employees login time and smoking time, if you people know something about android, you would not bend over those vendors(Simt, bores) as product based firm, replace the old android froyo test plan with new one to complete with market. Finally, learn to behave as gentleman not labour you are not owner of the company. Rules are only for junior level employees. Specially in Bangalore. I believe others places are enough


  11. Totally waste that's all.

    I have been working at Sonim Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No PRO'S to tell since cons have a big list

    Cons

    Join this company only if you satisfy two conditions. 1) IF you are laid-off from your previous company or you don't have an job join it. 2) If you think that you are able take the pressure of being fired on the same day without even giving the notice period or pre-intimation. join it if you don't satisfy the above clause please try to avoid this company. you don't get space to upgrade here only you'll get degraded in all manners.The company will use you in all manners and then throw you away when you don't need them this there culture/ if any one is planning to join Sonim think umpteen times before doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Management is busy with firing the peers from there job. so not going to disturb them by giving my reviews
