    - External training is not as effective on some tech platforms
    - Apart from appraisal meetings, it will help to have one to one sessions with seniors/ management

    Pros

    Good starting salary, If you are good at negotiation

    CEO is approachable

    Cons

    1. No Work Life balance
    2. No proper management
    3. Chaotic environment
    4. You get a good hike only if you are working directly with clients(Again depends upon your negotiation skill)
    5. Different pay scale for employee with same skill set and same years of experience(Difference might be up to 200%)
    6. Be ready to switch your profile in every 2 months
    7. Your skill set is not a criteria to put you on projects. Only criteria is you are available and the have a project.
    8. Long working hours.
    9. No Benefits for working late.
    10. Recently they have started to cut salary on the basis of late entry, but still no benefits for working late.
    12. Within 2-3 days you might be put on a ongoing project with completely different technology and you would be blamed for previous development issues
    13. Client is the only God
    14. No training for new technologies you have asked to work on.
    15. No co-ordination between HR and project-managers.
    16. No code reviews.
    17. Performance appraisal meetings are formality(if you got good ratings)
    18. They always find a way to pay you less.
    19. Time estimates decided by upper management for project deliveries are very unfair.
    20. You only worth for them if your billing for client is good
    21. Awards are just an added burn to injury for employees who works their heart out.
    22. Talented people are sidelined
    23. Autocratic Managers(Won't name any specific person's name but there are two) who thinks that they own the organisation

    Advice to Management

    1. Make a proper co-ordination between HR and Project managers
    2. Keep a proper standard in terms of compensation
    3. Use your resource in a well manner, You have very good and talented resources but they are ill-managed .
    4. Don't force your employee to switch to completely other technologies.
    5. Learn to respect every employee.
    6. Work on identifying relative resource for different projects just don't push any random employee just because currently he/she is not billable.

    1) Good People
    2) Founders are really humble and nice
    3) Close to Station and Highway
    4) Get to see different technologies
    5) Decent hikes

    Cons

    1) No Management
    2) Very bad(Worst) delivery dates for projects
    3) If you are fresher, you will be rolled on different technologies at any time
    4) You are expected to work on any technologies without proper training(You must be super human).
    4) If you are a girl doesn't matter. No security while going home late after 10 pm.
    5) If you work under 2 Persons (1 from Pune and other from Mumbai) then only you will be recognized and will be appreciated even for childish tasks.
    6) Few seniors with lower knowledge than juniors will take all credits
    7) HR --- hahahahahahahah
    8) No outing, No celebration on completion of projects, Only cricket( They don't think of Girls )
    9) Awards are just Kelaa
    10) Bad infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    1) Project Management is required
    2) True recognition of talents is required
    3) Taking suggestions on Management, Activities and Policy from employees will be beneficial
    4) Having Picnics and small celebration will make very good impact
    5) Considering Juniors/Employees as human will be great
    6) Stop thinking about saving more money and having policies to deduct from employees

    Now you know why most of the new joiners and good employees leave the company.

    Pros

    Latest and good technologies
    Founders are considerate and you can share your problems with them.

    Cons

    No management
    HR operations is outright a liar and does not stick to their word, always avoids anything in email and does not answer anything concrete.
    No transparency in relieving formalities.
    Project delays are regular however employees are made to work on weekends for which comp offs are never approved( Final approval is with HR who will always say project has overshot deny your claims)
    Mumbai joiners take a look at the lunch area and then decide if you want to join the company.

    Advice to Management

    Atidan gets really good clients and great technologies however the way project execution is done, it is at the expense of the resource which finally affects the clients too. Founders seldom have any idea how work is done at the grass root level. Since the company is barely of 50 employees, Founders should speak individually to resources and get to know the problem, as mentioned before no resource feels that the HR is going solve their problem.
