    I worked at LIBSYS (India) full-time

    Pros

    1) You will have lots of time to have ur breakfast and lunch i.e. none for breakfast and 30 mins for lunch. Most importantly they care so much about ur eating routine is that they will take action if u dont go lunch on the time given by them(i.e. 12.50 pm to 1.20pm).
    2) You will have lots of working holidays (at most 4) in whole year. They will always change the holidays every year according to the most holidays falling on the weekends. More working days more learning right ?
    3) They will give leaves more than any other company has ever given (i.e. 12 in an year) for which you will have to beg to take. You will need to submit the proper documents for all leaves like Marriage card, Medical for leave of even 1 day. So cool right ?
    4) They have the most awesome Holi, Diwali and new year party which will start at 5.30pm and will end by 6pm. After that u will have to leave the office else they will turn off the light of the floor beacuse they want u to be with ur family. So supporting people right ?
    5) They have the most awesome managers. They are well qualified to even diagnose u about ur health problems by just looking at u and will know that ur faking it(obviously right ?)
    6) They have the best way to judge ur work. The number of lines in code u have changed is the best way to know ur work right ?
    7) Manager will let u take the full responsibility of ur work(only if u screwed something).
    8) Working saturdays(almost each and every) are the best chance to prove urself.
    9)CEO is the best person to work with with no knowledge and no vision.
    10)The senior most person in ur team will be at most 2 years experienced. So u will learn a lot from him since he himself doesnt know what to do and how to do.
    11)You will never get a cab if u working in office till 11pm(for girls also). They want to u learn to take ur own responsibility.
    12)You will learn a lot since there is no internet on ur system reason being they are using the pirated softwares for coding purposes.
    13)You can always celebrate the bdays of ur friends or collegues outside the office since happy moments are not allowed in office premises.
    14) You will be spending more than 10 hours a day in office with no comepensation since it is ur responsibility to complete the task assigned to u at 5.30pm by that day only.
    15)Managers will ask u to not to talk with ur teamates since team builiding activities are not supported here.

    Cons

    Technologies used are so old that most of the people in the software market have not even heard of them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a management.

    Pros

    They pay you your salary, and thats the only pro.

    Cons

    This review is primarily for developers but other people from othr fields of work can get an overview in general about the atmosphere of work here.

    About the company
    a. Unambitious project goals.
    b. Low employee morale.
    c. No annual appraisal.
    d. No feedback on work.
    e. Highly unprofessional and orthodox environment that can suck the life out of anyone.

    About company policies
    a. No internet on your system. No outgoing emails from you company email ID. I know, its funny.
    a. They dont even share the copies of service agreement and NDA which is a bounding document between you and your employer and contains crucial information which can be used to jeorpadize your career. Please do not sign them before you get their photocopies in your hand, as HR is higly likely to tell you, very sweetly, that you'll get them after you sign them.
    b. Working hours are very stringent, and be prepared to get your half day salary decuted for reaching half an hour late to the office.
    c. There are 7 holidays - Republic Day, Holi, Independence Day, Gandhi Jayanti, Dusshera, Diwali, Christmas Day - a day each - for the year of 2018. Thats right, just that. Forget about any other leave, it wont get approved because of tight deadlines, which are none.
    d. After getting inside the premises, you cannot get in touch with outer world. No visiting in office, no going out of office. You cant even recieve your COD parcels at office.
    e. You cant send a email from the company to anyone, except 3-4 people - your managers - for DTS (Daily time sheet), and you cant even take a backup of this for your authenticity - which is always under question.
    f. This means you cannot even send a mail to HR, implying, you cant complaint about anything officially. Although HR are also company's employees and suffering the same fate, but having a proper channel atleast gives a shine if light.
    g. That reminds me, HR cannot do anything here. Literally nothing. HR people have no rights in this organization.
    h. The company has a policy of 3 months notice period, which they say is negotiable, but it isnt. You've to work until the last day, and expect to get your notice period extended if you're good at your work. The company seriously lack those kind of people. Because either they dont stay here or they loose their skill here.
    i. The company will not acknowledge any kind of your request - leave request, appraisal request, resignation - in an official manner, means you dont get proof that you have requested something, so that at any point in future they can deny the responsibility.
    j. The whole system is skewed in such a way, that the management can incriminate you anytime for anything and you cant even raise a finger. as specifically that will be written in your relieving letter, if there is any.

    Final Verdict
    a. Company has employee attrition rate > 70%. 20-30 new people come every year, and same number goes out.
    b. Nobody in the company has ever said they love to work here. Everybody is just stuck here.
    c. Nobody has ever got a reccomendation letter from Libsys, because nobody at the position of writing this letter knows what it is.
    d. Sign of this systematic mental harassment are clearly visible in the employees energy drenched faces every morning in the form of clinical depression and stress.
    e. Imposing unrealistic deadlines intentionally to make an individual fail is a common practise here to call people on holidays, rejecting which results in deduction from your salary.

    Advice to Management

    This company is a classic example of management failure. They could have made it big if there was good management and they just trusted their employees more.
