    I have been working at Guavus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Get to work on amazing stuff that invigorates your mind. - Good colleagues from whom you get to learn a lot. - Most of the managers are good. - Amazing perks and benefits - good amount of leaves and much more than expected holidays. - This is the best part - Guavus respects all its employees equally. Even if you are the junior most engineer, you get to travel Business Class if you travel on a long haul flight.... Same benefit as what a VP or a Director would get. Not many companies give you a Business Class flight, and those that they do, reserve it for elite honchos. - CEO is reachable, and to make himself more reachable, he has launched an incognito tool that makes it easy to give critical feedback that you might not give openly. And the best part is that he reads out the harshest of those and answers them in all hands. - I am excited about the work I do and get paid reasonably well.

    Cons

    Some senior folks who were used to generous hikes when they were young, crib about not getting 25% hike every year.

    Advice to Management

    Things have improved vastly in the last 1-2 years. Keep on doing the good work !

    I have been working at Guavus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Probably Salary and Mid day snacks.

    Cons

    No clear vision. Nepotism at its best. Poor management and work distribution. Only few people get to work on good things. Rest on them keep on maintaining their legacy code, that filth. Senior members project wrong image of junior staff. Promotions/Appraisal are dependent on their review. Nobody tries to find out who really worked and who not.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of your comfort zone and start working

    I have been working at Guavus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - good compensation - they have work related to big data but no sense to use it

    Cons

    - guavus is loosing customers and running short of money, can close any day in next year - most of the good people who were there in the company have left to join other good companies. one big portion of the company started a new company - managers and project managers unncessary make deadlines hard to screw work life balance - more politics less work - level of work is almost zero now a days...they have a... platform, so most of the people work on inhouse frameworks rather than open source technologies - worst work culture - team managers are very less experienced and doesn't have required skills to lead a team - most of the people have to work on almost all weekends - managers will call you and make you work even after office house and that too late night - manager will hide information from developers so that they remain smartest person in the team - no employee value....employees are scared for their jobs if they don't complete extra hard deadlines during production release by working day and night - these days as many employees are leaving, freshers are being hired so that they can be made to work extra hard

    I worked at Guavus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some colleagues are nice people. Salary is OK type..

    Cons

    Politics , Favouritism, Groupism. Some people get continuous promotions and hikes just because they are closer to some senior management. If you are hoping to grow based on your work, forget it. The only way to grow here is to be closer to some people. Fortunately most of these people are leaving Guavus now(The whole chain of such leader and his followers are moving to another place). Hopefully it'll be a better... place soon.

    Advice to Management

    Make everything transparent. To very top management, ensure that such politics never happens. It demoralizes even the good people out there.
