    I worked at Belzabar Software Design full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Intelligent and Talented team of developers, QA and leads.
    2. Good Compensation and benefits.
    3. Great learning curve for freshers.
    4. Great switching opportunities to companies like Google, Amazon and Microsoft.
    5. Overtime benefits.
    6. Flat hierarchy (One can directly contact CEO for any concern)

    Cons

    1. Lack of good projects that can help in better understanding of new technologies and design patterns.
    2. Lack of process especially code reviews and deployments.
    3. Lack of good project managers and business analyst that can actually understand the depth of client requirements and can decide the deadlines.
    4. Developers and QA are forced to meet the deadlines which results in bad coding practices and standards.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the bar of recruitment process for the position of PM and BA as maximum of them lags in basic technical and industrial concepts. They are good in communication and email writing but that is not suffice.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Belzabar Software Design full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Friendly environment
    2. Overtime facility
    3. Free tea and snacks(unhealthy ofcourse)
    4. Within the main city (Janakpuri)
    5. Good appraisals and performance bonus

    Cons

    1. Though there is overtime policy but if you are short of work, you will be underpaid as well since you need to log every minute/hour in the timesheet.
    Suggestion - if employee doesn't have work, minimum promised salary should still be given.
    2. No fixed timings. Team members come anytime, other team members keep waiting for them due to dependency.
    Suggestion - Fixed office timings will prevent such situations.
    3. Need to complete 8 hours a day at any cost + required hours of the month as well. So if I am putting extra hours one day, why can't I leave early the next day?
    Suggestion - required hours of month should make importance since employee may work extra a day, he can work less any other day.
    4. Regular late stays as there are no fixed timings.
    Suggestion - manage work, employees and deadline such that everyone can leave for home on time to have his/her personal time.
    5. Frequent weekend shifts as well (work from home) and worst part is people agree to work as well. This gives OT but affects work life balance.
    6. Poor work life balance as everyone tend to work more than 8 hours a day.
    7. Need to put personal breaks in timesheet during any company wide celebration.
    8. Micro management is done.
    9. Lack of coordination of managers with client and offshore team.
    10. Appraisal process is completely opaque and delayed.
    Suggestion - Add an interface on the portal where employee can track the appraisal process.
    11. Company name is no where mentioned outside the building.
    Suggestion - At least have a board outside.

    Advice to Management

    Take frequent feedbacks from employees about company & peers.
    Work upon them if feasible.
    And keep the feedbacks anonymous.

    Pros

    No pressure of managers and team leads. Do whatever you want and how you want to do it.
    Good people. Many fields to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Time sheet system is really irritating sometimes but in the end you realize its only there so that you get the pay you did work for.

    Advice to Management

    time sheet system is usually irritating so provide the employees with work yourselves, give them time limits but make it a monthly salary not time dependent salary, a developer's time usually gets wasted in deciding what to write how to write.
