No opinion of CEO

Pros

1. Senior Management can be reached if you have concerns or questions
2. Leading Software in Business Intelligence. Probably the best among the competition

Cons

It is much harder to move up if you start at the bottom than if you come in with some experience from elsewhere. A lot of your success will depend on which area of the country you are assigned to work for. Overall benefits for employees are not quite on par with the competition. The company does not offer any tuition reimbursement options. In the past year the company has lost a lot of its stock's value and revenue from new licensing has been done compared to previous years.

Advice to Management

I would advice senior management to try to interact more with the employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Different types of technologies to work with.

    Cons

    Too many people, working on same thing.
    Age gap of 5-6 years between senior and junior due to IT stock market crash in 2002
    Promotions are difficult.
    The company has been recruiting only since last 2-3 years creating a batch of people with same chances of promotion.
    Everybody at higher levels are managers, they have reached the limit on how high they can be promoted.
    Senior level not supportive enough due to work pressures on them.
    Machines are very slow, and office is old.

    Advice to Management

    Should hire good computer science graduates for software engineering. Not hiring computer science graduates for software engineer position leads to incorrect software practices in the software which leads to problems in the codes in future.
    OOPs and design patterns should be a required skill set for an SE.
