    Pros

    After reading some of the negative reviews, I felt compelled to show another side of Advaiya, Inc. through the eyes of a current employee.

    Advaiya has been a wonderful employer for the several years I have worked with them. Yes, we have gone through changes during a difficult economy (and reductions in force which I believe resulted in several bad reviews) but we've come out ahead as a much stronger and more focused team. I have witnessed employees come in at entry level positions and work their way up through the company. I have witnessed employees be rewarded for their hard work. I have witnessed a management team that is innovative, inspiring, and fully supportive of their employee's needs and maintains an honest, open-door policy to make sure they are met.

    Advaiya provides consulting services to some of the worlds biggest industry leaders and allows its employees to work on some of the most cutting-edge technologies out there. The biggest pro for working at Advaiya is always being at the head of innovation within the technology industry - and doing so with such an amazing team of talented people.

    Cons

    Like any company, there are downsides to working at Advaiya. One such downside is that occasionally you will need to adjust your hours so that you can communicate with team members all over the world. Also, you will occasionally be asked to step outside of your role to support other team members. Those who do well at Advaiya welcome the challenge of working with a dynamic team where their projects change from time to time and they have the flexibility to work at their own schedule. If you are looking for a standard 9-5 where you do the same thing everyday, Advaiya is probably not for you.

    Advice to Management

    The team leading Advaiya has done a great job of keeping all employees informed during company changes and making dificult decisions in a fair and open manner. I'm proud to work for them.

    Pros

    The only pros would be the location and access to Microsoft through this job. Other than that, you would be hard pressed to find an employee with another pro

    Cons

    Unethical business practices. Belligerent treatment of employees. Incompetent leadership. Advaiya is such a bad place to work that there is an unofficial I Hate Advaiya Club whose whole purpose is to bash the company over dinner and drinks. The number of people in attendance is usually 20-25 former and current employees. There are only about 45 active US employees - just to give you an idea. There is not a single employee who is not actively and desperately looking for a job. Avg tenure @ Advaiya is 3.5 months (seriously).

    Advice to Management

    The CEO and COO are incompetent leaders (ie, techies with no leadership or business abilities). To salvage the company, the only alternative would be for them to walk away from active management of the co.

    Pros

    Great vision, capable senior management, great professional growth if you are willing to take on more responsibility, decent renumeration, AWESOME people.

    Cons

    Almost all policies are knee-jerk reaction, not enough planning, forethought, roll and implementation - very shabby exectuion when rolling out policies. Too many direction changes all the time.
    Sr Management will typically wait untill the person is willing to walk out to give them credit.

    As a result of this - the company morale suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your people are saying, Take notice of the talent you have and show your appreciation by actions sooner than later else you will end up losing good talent.
    Mingle more with them to improve company morale.

    Pros

    Very close relationship to Microsoft. Ability to work on some interesting inside projects with Microsoft. Support with work/life balance. Very flexible work environment as long as the work gets done.

    Cons

    Salaries no longer competitive. Microsoft only focus, needs to create urgently some own IP and put real effort and time behind it. Better support for remote employees.

    Advice to Management

    They need to be more open to alternative places to operate than Kirkland office - we promote UC after all. Need to devote money/time/persons to expand business to new areas.

    Pros

    Being close to Microsoft, working directly for internal Microsoft projects and initiatives.

    Cons

    Advaiya follows Microsoft. They have no direction other than to feed off the whims of Microsoft preferred vendor captial projects. There is no hope for any sustainable growth at Advaiya.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a high-end BPM, UC or BI practice around Microsoft technology. Alternatively, develop relationships with other large vendors for pre-sales and marketing services.

    My two star rating is only because of the office premises and Udaipur location.
