A very satisfying place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at United Online full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSmall company making the work environment more personal. Also allows for opportunities to work in other areas where you might not get a chance to in larger companies.

ConsSomewhat rocky future for the communications division beings its primary business is dialup. However, it is diversifying with the new wifi business. Also, a lot of the work is in Hyderabad, India which makes it hard beings they are on a different timezone.

Good place to work

Software Engineer I (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at United Online

ProsThe workplace is really cool with good work life balance. It is a very good place for freshers as they can learn a lot

ConsSalary for senior software engineers are less compared to industry. Not very challenging work available. Most of the works are just improvisation kind of it

Advice to Senior ManagementSince the freshers can learn a lot, they tend to switch companies which can pay upto twice the salary. This can be avoided if they pick freshers from small colleges and give them proper training instead of picking from hi-fi institutes
