Pros

- Great experience with on-campus recruitment, for internships and full-time. The HR organize enough stuff to ensure that the big batch of people joining from college have a grand, fun time! I met some of my best friends till date in those events, from very different colleges, teams and projects. - College recruits are valued highly, for sure. We can give preferences for the teams we want, and I was lucky enough to get a choice of projects too. We're made to really feel like an important part of their community, whether it's at the immediate project team level or the higher ranks - I, for example, was given access to very challenging nascent projects as well as major code bases and deployments within my first year. Our work and inputs are always taken seriously (at least at the smaller levels), and we will see quite a few technical challenges that help us learn a lot (but this does depend on the kind of projects taken up). - Great community. Lots of different activities happened in many clubs especially before COVID. Song, dance, Toastmasters and many such things are there to cover your interests and have a great time at office! With a bit more effort, especially at the higher ranks, the SRI-B community can seriously feel like a well-knit family, and that's like one of the best things I could say about any workplace I'm ever going to be in. - My manager and immediate team were extremely dependable. Even when we faced some obstacles due to COVID etc., or when I personally faced issues that stopped me from doing my best, the impact of these were felt but mitigated as much as possible by my manager and everyone around (of course, trading off individual vs company interests is always rough, but my manager gave me all the support he could). They were very friendly - I've even sung with them and discussed Modern Family and all sorts of other stories with teammates many years elder to me. - Benefits! Along with the really good salary, we got access to an awesome food court which spoiled me for most of the time as I felt like I could get all three meals there. And a good gym which started me off on a great weight loss journey. And a leave & work hour policy that allows for quite a lot of flexibility in work - which, coupled with a friendly team, meant that I could take breaks and recharge whenever I wanted (of course, unless there's an important deadline). Overall, it was a second college to me. I had such an awesome time with the people I was lucky enough to get to know and befriend so well... It was an unforgettable experience for me.

Cons

- Going higher in the ranks, we see some differences in how the company is managed; things become messier for sure, and it becomes unclear how we can grow in our career. Many college recruits (like me) have left for higher studies or other jobs; retention is more rare. Though I had my plans set even before I joined the company, I've seen many people want to move (and actually move) within 2-4 years. It definitely has a lot to do with how the managers, higher-ups and teams are setting visions and making plans for projects. - It's quite rare to find a stalwart of the company who truly inspires you and infuses passion/enthusiasm for their work and team, and makes you see a way forward within the company (it doesn't help if we need to look all the way at the top, e.g. Dipesh Shah himself, to get that inspiration). - Salary/Benefits seen to be quite less than other major companies for CS engineers (e.g. Microsoft, Amazon, Uber etc.), but I'd definitely say they're great in their own right. Though I've also seen that the salary bracket is different for recruits from different colleges (e.g. IIT recruits are paid more for the same job title), which I don't like.

Advice to Management

Having a clearer growth path and vision for the projects/products is needed. I've seen many management meetings that target how Samsung can beat its competitors, but they don't place much focus on the projects and efforts in their own right (and some kickoff/project roadmap meetings very clearly seem like formalities). I feel, if SRI-B can sort this out and define its own unique longer term path, and propagate that to our levels, with our managers also echoing and truly supporting that vision completely, then all new recruits would be more inspired and willing to stay and grow. And they'd love to do that especially after the outstanding welcome they get from the company, fresh out of college!
