    Worst middle level management; bad part is that its all about favouritism when it comes to promotions/hikes , talented engineers under-utilised, crap politics, unstable/insecurity.

    Advice to Management

    Just limit ur cheap way of showing bossy to home. Need to have better sense of product stratup culture. HR intervention on mid-layer management is must for guavas success.

    Pros

    None.....the company the space of big data Analytics hype is now over. That used to be some kind of an excitement for folks. However even that is not there any more....most engineers would feel underwhelmed with quality of work.

    Cons

    This is a company which has no ethics they picked up some Sr. Leaders who were discarded/fired from their companies. They would frustrate you to limits.

    HR has no ethics only false promises. They hire and fire on their whims and fancy and in most unethical manner. HR would lie during salary discussions and its a sea of politics.

    The company is also hugely discriminatory in taking hiring decisions. Someone must file a complaint with all labour and immigration authorities in all countries they operate. They have flouted all Labor/Immigration laws. A class action may be filed against this company soon.

    Just ctrl/Alt/Delete this company from your list of prospects

    Advice to Management

    Be ethical

    I have been working at Guavus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There used to be many but currently only reason is that it is a good place where huge salary is paid to do nothing :)

    Cons

    - No vision; product managers do not know how to define products as most of them do not fit to be product managers. The guy who heads product management has no experience of product management.
    - Engineering has been handed over to people who have no engineering background; mostly come from support(GDS) background.

    Advice to Management

    CEO only knows how to fool around not just investors but also the employees. May be he is fooling himself as well. So may be time to look back and rectify your mistakes.
    Go and get some business, rather than blaming engineering.
