    Pros

    Great product with loads of potential. Lots of good people who want to make a difference. Recent wins with Dell, ATK, Jawbone, and TI.

    Cons

    This company burns thru people like a Hummer burns through gasoline. You get drawn in by the product but quickly learning that culture kills the opportunity for long term success. the worst sales environment I have ever seen. No clue on what it takes to sell software in the US. Run by the India Cartel who spends too much time on travel reports and meaningless KPI's. This is a culture that is its own worst enemy and the executives in the US are powerless to change anything. Step it line boys, Aatish is your master and it's only a matter of time before you are replaced. Maybe you can fire a sales rep to cover your back for a month or two but soon you will have to open wide and say Aaaaaatish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    US management, do what you came to do and foster change. Grow a pair!

    Pros

    New management creating energy and momentum that will lead to success. Great products, decent support, good client list

    Cons

    Dialect - it's the 800lb Gorilla that no one wants to address. Still too many Indian ways. Multi leg flights, cheap hotels, small meal allowances, poor tools, which all lead to inefficient processes and rushed efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move operations to USA with engineering and support staying in India. Give more control to each region to use local marketing to help promote within the countries they are in. Buy the tools necessary so that all teams can utilize and standardize.

    An Indian company in an American skin. Don't get fooled by big talks and big customer names. None stick long enough.

    Current Employee - Are You Kidding? in Princeton, NJ

    Pros

    Great place to start your career

    Challenges from the word go. Even simple tasks are made challenging, so one cannot complain about not finding any challenging work.

    Setting right expectations is the key to success. Manage your Boss. He will manage the rest.

    Cons

    Beware of Lip service, shady politics.

    Every HOD is bent on pulling the other HOD's pant down.

    Leave your real Intelligence back home, as Zycus has its own invented Artificial Intelligence which works for all products and process that run in Zycus.

    Scout for another job in hand before confronting your seniors.

    In short- No Different from any other Indian Company, so chill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up from the artificially intelligent world created for you. There is real Intelligence beyond it.
