    Pros

    The team I worked with was great and supportive. They worked on interesting projects and let me contribute to the final product.

    Cons

    I don't really see much of a con in this company. Very satisfactory.

    Advice to Management

    The job is very competitive but the compensation is not.

    I worked at Ittiam Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work that you do is good and covers a wide range. You get to design, implement, test, talk to customers, participate in planning and so on.
    Motive behind decisions are very transparent.
    Highest level management very approachable and understanding of employee's problems.
    Doing multiple things in parallel is good in a way that you'll learn how to balance work and life.
    Having said all that work/life balance for me was good. But, there were people who would struggle with this. It could just be the team or a problem with their planning. It really isn't easy to say which one of them is the reason.

    Cons

    Doing multiple things in parallel is bad in a way because you cover width and covering something in-depth will require focus from your own side.
    Work culture was good in one of the teams I worked in. But, overall, its kind of pathetic. People don't say no to work even though it isn't possible and start cribbing behind. How about a little honesty.
    Lot of people just fool around during the day and stay late to finish up which kind of screws up the dynamics of the work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people to take offs and be on time on work days. Having relaxed regular work days is a luxury that people don't know how to handle. Be strong and say that we can't deliver, if not possible. Don't take things that you can't do and end up forcing people to work more.

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

    Pros

    Lot of responsibilities for a fresher.

    Cons

    Low salary compared to other firms in similar industry.

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain the key people in the firm. Try to stop attrition. When one leave, it starts an avalanche of people leaving firm


  6. "It was a great company to work with for right out of college graduates."

    Pros

    Less hand holding from Seniors in the team, and get to work on varied stuff in quick interval of time. One gets to experience all cycles of sofware development cycle if you are willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Less job training, hence you run scared when you are new to the company. It still functions like a start-up so you need to adapt to quick changes in direction of the project. Less supervison, hence you get less direction for the higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced people, so that the teams have better foresight. This also inspires new recruits to learn more from their time here.
