    Cons

    Process is getting streamlined but need to be aggresive mode.

    Advice to Management

    Very nice Job Vijai and your leadership.
    As the company is growing, Akvarr should focus more on getting direct business (consulting services, project management or hosting) rather trying to place candidate
     - It should focus on offering niche and distinguished services to obtain bigger pie of revenue share/direct business

    Pros

    best company for people who has no self respect.

    Cons

    The management makes employees write positive review on glass door.
    most of the reviews are written by the owner of the company only on glass door
    The owner of this company is selfish, arrogant, egoistic.
    No manners to talk to employees at all.
    employees are abused by the owner on regular basis
    delays salary for months and then the employee is fired so that he does not have to give salary.
    no employee is allowed to talk to other employee
    permission is required to go to washroom or to have food
    management wants employee to be their slave
    failing to be slave of management will lead to termination
    the major work of owner is to make his own videos and upload on youtube and facebook and makes employees like it so that he gets extra income.
    Average working hours are 12
    saturday is a complete working day without pay
    not allowed to wear shoes inside office
    there are meeting for 2 hours in beginning of the day and 2 hours at the end of the day

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not slaves if they work in your company,
    Go to some other company and see how employees are treated and learn some manners.
    stop flirting with female employees
    the amount of time you are wasting on making videos spend the same time in growing the company
    learn manners

    I have been working at Akvarr full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Akvarr's pre-boarding and/or post boarding was really good and in sync with new joinee. Akvarr sponsorship program is very smooth and quite easy and transparent .I will definitely recommend Akvarr to my colleague for their employee friendly environment.Akvarr HR team is very friendly and transparent with salary and benefits package but needs to scale their team a little bit to accommodate consultant inquiries.

    6. Do you get your salary paid on time?

    Cons

    Need to scale team for better communication

    Advice to Management

    Syed is a wonderful person both personally and professionally. Several times he has gone that extra mile but unfortunately, I do not have any interviews set up yet.
