    Pros

    flexible timings and easy work
    free food

    Cons

    delivery team the director has shown unethical and unprofessional attitude. They may make you quit forcibly. It can hamper your mental state. It was like my way or highway. Do not join Service delivery team. Fights , fights and fights. Product engineering team is fine.

    Advice to Management

    Atleast do not promote unprofessionalism. You should instead curb this type of culture. It will hit you badly in future. Do not forget law of Karma

    Never had to work on weekends!!

    If you have good email skills and can argue sky is the limit

    Let the actual people working behind the scenes get the credit and not the people presenting the work to the management.

    Pros

    There is no best reason as such. Yes there is one .. Butter utilization !

    Cons

    Poor management, poor HR, no proper facilities,No Safety. Stinking wash rooms..unhealthy atmosphere, workstations..It's always the wrong people at the top.,People will be sent abroad to satifsy the employee, and the employee leaves the company once they reach the venue. No work ethics. People at office mostly engaged in the stocks and shares and other important personal work..meeting rooms are booked for gossips.. no proper work assignment. And the last and not the least .. The maximum utilized resource is from the pantry and that is " BUTTER" . butter is always in demand and kilos and kilos of butter is used every day.

    Advice to Management

    Great Escape !!!

    Pros

    I joined Arcot 2.5 yrs back. It has been an amazing learning experience for me. I grew from a core developer to developer + leader + analyzer + enthusiast within my first year. You get ample opportunities to work on different projects and always welcomed by people to give and share your knowledge about something. My expertise has grown from a mare front-end developer to a complete engineer with hand on experience on different aspects. It is the place to work with and I love it !

    Cons

    You find issues when people from such varied background and thoughts meet together. But those can be ignored if you have the right attitude. The culture is so nice that you will not feel down here anytime. Its great.

    Advice to Management

    We Should Ignore the negatives and go along with the positves.
