    Pros

    - Strategic business initiatives well tuned to market needs in the Big Data and Analytics space - Huge upside in the stock options due to significant rise in value due to Product revenues building strongly this year and next - Culture of open communication where every body has an equal say or at least strongly influence direction of business and technology initiatives - The team in the US is small so every new person is well recognized and highly visible - contributions are well rewarded - Intellectually stimulating and rewarding environment where occasional extra hours occur mostly as fun and inviting rather than drudgery

    Cons

    - If you want to be really comfortable, slow paced and work 9-6 this is not the place - You may miss the well-stocked kitchen or a few other perks if you expect a "google" or "FB" type environment - Relatively low number of vacation days - but Christmas to Jan-1 is a shutdown for everybody - Lot of attention given to run a stable profitable company works well from a stability and salary-certainty perspective but may compromise the high-risk + high-reward opportunities

    Advice to Management

    - Think hard about wealth creation options for employees and create and communicate those options - Build a much stronger local and national brand in the markets of interest

    Pros

    Company working on big data services and products. Some good technical people offshore. Two capable people in offshore leadership roles.

    Cons

    All the mid-senior & senior people practise Vanto. Search for Landmark Forum and read the NYT article. They have 4 day long meetings every 3 months. People in India attend these meetings at 7pm-4 am and for people in US it is 5am-2 pm. About 20 people are cramped into a 20x20 room for these meetings and typically a few unfortunate and (sometimes) inept employees are blamed publicly for all that is bad with the company. No client meetings the whole week. No time to speak with family. US workers are kept in a hotel that is fondly called the haunted house. These meetings are conveniently scheduled around weekends with no consideration for the family commitments of employees. The company pretends that it is a product company though not even 2% revenue is from products. Extremely stingy expense policy. Ridiculous benefits & vacation policy.

    Advice to Management

    Wonder why you cannot hire & retain salespeople? Think hard. Stop the 'Sir' culture. None of you got a knighthood.

    Pros

    This company will give you ample of opportunities and plethora of BigData Problems in form of projects that it has and the products that it develops... One of the oldest company in the market to adopt BigData gives it an uper hand over the new ones . If you are new to big data or want to build a currier in it , trust me, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    None that comes to my mind as personally I have been really happy the way Impetus has taken care of me and of my peers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good pace as people and those who are new to bigdata will look up to you.

    1. Geeks will love it. Opportunity to work on "hot" technology areas. Lot of emphasis in Big Data and Enterprise Mobility. 2. Sculpt the job description according to your strength and preference. 3. Lots of opportunities to go to conferences and marketing events. 4. Lots of hiring lately. Seems the senior leadership is quite bullish.
