    Pros

    technology usage and exposure was intersting and an added advantage from class room teaching.

    Cons

    no fixed work. tutor needs to be available and click for the sessions.
    Lots of wastage of effort and productive hours

    Advice to Management

    take less employees and give them sufficient work to utilize their talent and time. It will help them earn a respectable amount.

    Pros

    visionary founders, even better if you had the opportunity to work with Srini, Ganesh or Ravi.
    Early emphasis on sales, customer acquisition & incubating/acquiring
    amazing PR & HR
    long term focus
    young team, immense faith in developers. all first 10-20 hires were freshers led by a calm & experienced CTO in Ravi Kannan
    ability to retain employees

    Cons

    hardly any overlap/discussions with employees apart from their manager/immediate team members. (on the flip side - everyone knows what they're doing & don't butt into what others are doing)
    lost several early employees who did not get any stock options - but hey who new it would get get acquired for $200M+
    bad canteen
    average to below average salaries for new employees

    Advice to Management

    - kudos!
    - could probably do a little bit more to seem more developer friendly ( via a tech blog, etc ) to attract tech talent
    - hope you encourage present & past employees in their own startup journey
