    I have been working at Indus Valley Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The advantage of being in a small office is direct interaction with the high-level superiors. Since less number of employees per team the developer gets full stack development and more exposure over the full life cycle of the software development. Free lunch, snacks, and dinner.

    Cons

    Poor management but they were improving while I resigned and they have surely learned from their mistakes. Do not follow proper coding standards, software structure, methodologies and most of the team uses legacy code.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees.

    Pros

    Client exposure, responsibility, multi tasking, autonomy, my work and team had little to no micro management, supportive teams

    Cons

    No career plan for senior hires; Very fresher based firm, same work for fresh mba grads and experience of 7-8 years, average management team - no one to look up to in the India offices, change of hr leadership every couple years reflects in the policies and direction the firm takes

    Advice to Management

    Retention plan for good performers and seniors should be looked at, outspoken managers seem to be quitting, India management is very average, no knowledge building for postgraduates.

    I have been working at Indus Valley Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IVP provides a good opportunity for freshers to learn fast and in depth. Your learning curve over the first 3-4 years is very steep. The company is very agile in terms of roles, and it is a good playground if you wish to try new tech, IVP is open to introducing new technology in existing projects (if they make sense).

    Overall, the work culture is pretty good (at least in the Mumbai office). The atmosphere is cheerful, and you get to learn a lot domain-wise as well. You can work hard, learn more, contribute more and this will (generally) result in the company giving you more recognition and promotion (unless your manager is in a different geographical location and has a pea-sized brain: a 15% chance of this exists in IVP).

    Cons

    Work culture in the Noida office is not that great. People have to work late into the night and into weekends on a regular basis. People are sometimes judged on this: how many working hours you have extended: which is totally stupid. Timelines are not well-decided.
    Working >9 hours / into late nights happens in the Mumbai office as well, but it is a rare occurrence.
    The company has a very startup-like culture (it likes to maintain it so), so you will not find good deployment procedures in practice. Basically, you will not get a very good idea of what procedures are followed in production (best practices).

    Advice to Management

    Extending working hours limitlessly is NOT a good practice. Please don't focus on face-time.
    This message is probably being propagated but it has still not gotten into the system of many managers. Often employees are looked down upon and compared with those who work on weekends/ into late nights, even when this was not necessary / should not be necessary. This is very, very averse to employees' health and ultimately causes attrition.

    Pros

    -Best peer network I have ever seen
    -Dinner (not the best but still)

    Cons

    -Not that great a work environment, you could simply see yourself entering a decapitated mill and you would be calling that your office.
    -Not that great work hours, sometimes you would have to stay back late nights or even overnights.
    -Poor project allocation

    Advice to Management

    Stay calm, and take regular feedback from employees

    I have been working at Indus Valley Partners as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Use new technologies which is good. Offices are good, there is good amount of work for everyone.

    Cons

    No value for interns, they were very busy with existing projects. Why did they hire interns in first place. Should have given more time to interns.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value everyone that works at your place. Set achievable targets and do not stress employees to a level beyond normal.
