    Pros

    They don't really bother you frequently, leaving you to do your job at whatever company you're in.

    Cons

    Bonuses are low.
    Overseas. Communication may be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Management is fine. They're overseas so all forms of communication is done via email. Sometimes they take a while to reply and you have to escalate things.

    I have been working at Lister Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work-Life balance
    Good work culture
    Supportive co-workers
    Loose hierarchy to some extent

    Cons

    As much as the company tries to maintain its pros, at the end of the day it is largely driven by the clients who are usually difficult to deal with. As a result, there are politics, working a rut and everything that causes you to feel bad about working here. Whether you enjoy working here or dread it largely depends on the particular team leads and managers.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Lister Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good for people with lesser skills and even greater skills in talking and talking. Your appraisals depend on your manager's love towards you. (bootlicking)

    Cons

    Not good projects. It's a company that is edging towards closure. Not good enough people and not good enough projects to sustain it.

    Advice to Management

    Change your mid management people and top leadership. Even new leaders coming into the picture won't have an effect. Even those new leaders are relatives to the owner of the company. So its no good.
