    Pros

    Learn about Microsoft Technologies and products. You get good exposure to Azure and other technologies internal to Microsoft.

    Cons

    Certain level of Micromanagement. Long late night calls with India team is a big minus.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    They offer the option of contributing to a 401K plan - and they also do a match. This was a valued benefit - and did not seem typical at the time for contract agencies.

    Cons

    Most of their Marketing positions were on the low end of compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the monthly luncheons. It was nice to be able to meet with other contract employees.

    Can't think of any, except the project leads were themselves not clear about it

    I worked at MAQ Software as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience for freshers but make sure not to stay for long as the work gets repetitive.

    Cons

    Work-life balance depends on your team.
    It might so happen that you have to stay in office till next mornings so as to get work done. Also, they can fire you without any probable cause.
    CEO makes you read his published book which could not be any bad. He corrects people grammar on the go but the book itself has so much nuisance including grammatical errors.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with employees.

    Encourages growth of employees both at personal and professional level. Open room for discussion. Provides coupons for certifications. Overall a nice place to start.

    Limited tech stack flexibility. Stupid work timings. Absurd management of resources. No one strives to do quality work only focus is on completion.

    Advice to Management

    Improve tech stack flexibility. Stupid work timings. Improve management of resources. Please strive to do quality work not only focusing on completion.
