    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Key Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No proper management. Worst work culture. No guidance given by management related to work but ready to pin point on employees for their mistakes. Cant afford industry standard salaries.

    Cons

    They work on very old and outdated technologies. Nothing new to learn. No senior developers working here as almost 70 to 80 % talent people resigned and moved out to better organisations. They keep high pressure on entry level 0.6 years to 1 year experience java developers to work on product development.

    Advice to Management

    Pay competitive and find good resource. Maintain basic standards.

    Pros

    People are nice; management is honest and very transparent Excellent software products in Research administartion and compliance and a leader

    Cons

    Due to the market they serve (regulatory and compliance), quality and attention to details is critical. Tough interview process to get into the company and nor for average person.

    Advice to Management

    You hired some people quickly in 2014 due to growth and in my opinion, they did lot of damage with their limited knowledge and experience in this filed. Yiu shoukd continue your tough recruitment process.

    None
    This company will take advantage of employee than give any helping hand.

    Never Pays Salary in time.

    You have to followup for running the payroll as well.

    Please respect employees hard work and pay their salaries. I'm sure very soon you will realize.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Key Solutions as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company finds excellent staff. My co-workers were of varied backgrounds and highly intelligent. The software for research compliance is quite interesting and a help to the research community.

    Cons

    Very high staff turnover. Many staff are in contract roles or choose to stay less than a year. No training on the software and poor management. Management are all inter-married or college buddies.

    Advice to Management

    More training on the software. Listen to and trust your new employees. Increased training, better management and pay commensurate with experience will decrease your high staff turnover.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Key Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The SaaS products they produce are very useful. Also, the senior managers have an excellent person-to-person managerial style.

    Cons

    Senior management is disorganized and the day-to-day work of the few employees is grossly mismanaged. The talents and efforts of excellent employees wind up being wasted, and they tend to quickly find new positions and quit.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn to delegate, hiring more project managers and empowering them to streamline projects and production. They also need to rein in the developers in India, too many of whom are simply not competent and who, in any case, do not follow instructions. Last but not least, they must stop low-balling talented people.

    I have been working at Key Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no proper facilities provided for an employee in this company. No competitive salaries offered compared to market standards. They treat software employees as daily labour with no dignity. Slavery kind of work culture.No compensatory day off's or no extra pay for those who work on holidays Saturday and Sundays. Long working hours which is 10 hours shift with just one hour break time. Day starts at 8:30 AM and ends at 6:30 PM. They take 3 years bond while joining.

    Cons

    No standards for this company. Forget about CMMI Level its not even an ISO Certified company. It don't have any standards in regards to hygiene maintenance. No proper coffee machine. It is very old one and flies and ants around the coffee machine area. The coffee or tea powder they use in the machine are low standard and cheap one. They don't even provide mineral water to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try and improve the standards of company. Treat employees with respect but not as slaves.

    Cons

    Apart form the heck tick process of keeping up with industry updates, its hard to list any.
