    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Guavus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A place to learn, grow and try things. You’re welcome at the beginning. Offer snacks. Flexible working hours and you can work remotely time to time.

    Cons

    You won’t get enough guidance if you’re a junior because of lack of knowledge in latest technologies. You need to figure out things by yourself. The company got acquired and it’s going through a transition which causes to lose its identity. You won’t get any bonus and your work won’t be appreciated no matter how hard you work. Bad decisions in middle management will make you suffer cause employees are held... accountable at the end.

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

    Pros

    Free snacks round the clock

    Cons

    No New Projects. No Revenue. POCs failing. Existing projects on the verge of extinction due to bad Architecture choices but no one is held accountable and guess what project teams are being pegged for disaster. Senior Management trying to do everything from scratch. CEO is full of talks and no action. Company is going down day by day and CEO is hiding behind the newly hired management team to save his job. Such a... useless fellow. what happened to fail fast learn fast? We have failed tremendously fast but CEO don't have the ability to learn or take action due to his own inabilities and insecurities

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

    Pros

    Flexible (and lengthy) work hours.

    Cons

    Same repeated activities to different customer. Innovation is dead, people work just to save the job. When you want somebody you offer them good package, and when the need is over you just ask to leave, and even eat the funds/gratuity. Internal politics will kill you some day. Any achievement is 'part of work', any mistake is non-forgivable.

    Advice to Management

    Do a micro-management, many are working as parasite. Be decisive.
