    I have been working at Aztech Labs (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Having the opportunity to work on nearly everything, you do learn a lot
    - Friendly, helpful colleagues, who generally really want to put in their best effort. Middle managers sometimes do try to protect subordinates.
    - Little politics within your department and among people of same rank
    - They pay on time and have no problem handling claims.

    Cons

    Take the typical cons of a small firm:
    - Employees tend to have to cover multiple job roles, but not trained to do so nor stated in job scope
    - Tight deadlines, "flexible" job scope, high stress, hidden KPIs that evolve so that managers can avoid awarding bonus. Expectation to work weekends without any return (even a simple thank you will help).
    - Poor documentation beginning since ancient times. no attempt by higher management to correct this. Lack of sufficient resources to do work effectively
    - Poor pay and compensation for the workload

    And cons of a large firm:
    - Rigid, waterfall based approach to management, a lot of upward communication and micromanagement. Issues raised are trivialized and no additional help provided.
    - But Little downward communication. No reinforcement of company’s strategic direction, mission. Or even organizing or even simple product/project briefs at the start for member buy-in. Only when you are expected to do something about it will some information be given
    - Very hierarchical. Too many chiefs - too much management, no execution. Not even ensuring proper project or resource management, but only interested in exerting authority, pushing blame if things go wrong. Completely no leadership by example.

    And you get this firm. Employee morale is low and turnover high. Expertise, compounded by poor practices, is easily lost.

    Advice to Management

    Before you start lecturing rank and file employees, first do some introspection on the company's values and culture you want to promote. Reflect on whether any actions you do actually help improve the company. There is probably no hope for change though, as they've ignored signs such as high turnover and increasingly poor performance.

    I worked at Aztech Labs full-time

    Pros

    There are no Pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    - No matter how much amount of work you complete, you will be given more and more work.
    - No matter till how much late you sit in office, you will be pressurized to spend more and more hours in office.
    - Even if you complete your tasks on time, you will be forced to come to office on weekends under the threat of points deduction in KPI and Annual Bonus.
    - Official office timings are 9:00 to 6:15. If you reach office at 9:02 then HR will send you an email with your Manager in CC that you are coming late to office. But if you leave office at 6:30 (after properly completing your daily tasks) then according to Manager it is 'very early' time to leave and they think that you are spoiling company culture !
    - They don't care about your family and health. They don't even follow MoM rules mentioned on MoM website for medical/dental insurance for foreign employees. If you talk to HR they will try to confuse you by referring to rules for local employees.
    - Managers don't respect employees, they will shout at you and verbally abuse you. However HR are very polite and calm.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not slaves

    Pros

    Friendly people, friendly colleague. People are nice and easy going, least of conflict and politics in the company whole structure

    Cons

    -Uncertainty arise on daily basis.
    -hire and fire as and when they feel the need to
    -superb high turnover rate
    -CEO in control of everything, does not empower its employees at all level to make decent decisions
    -No clear directions, doing things blindly

    Advice to Management

    Change is inevitable, however if the change is only to suit the bosses, there won't be any much growth to the company. A good company to start with, but bound to go downhill with the square mindset of family business operation.
