    Pros

    There is no good reason to work here .Whatever hard work you do one fine day HR will call you and ask you to resign along with 40 other collegues.

    Cons

    Microsoft has stopped giving them projects so this company has nothing work to do now. Hence they are on a firing spree.Earlier Microsft was their only client

    Advice to Management

    It's high time that the dictator CEO should quit IT field and start something where he should manage unskilled labourers. He's a total waste fellow with no skill at all.

    I worked at MAQ Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Performance Appraisal cycle is done in every 6 months
    - People are given responsibility of leading a team early in the career (this is because most of the people leave this company after 1-2 years)
    - PPF reimbursement

    Cons

    This company is just full of cons.
    - No respect or value is given to the employees.
    - Hire people from good colleges like NIT and IITs and they are given work as like they are slaves.
    - No cab facility, they provide a bus in the evening to a common drop point which is also a mistake according to the CEO. He wants to stop this service also.
    - Work is only limited to SQL queries and Power BI reports. After working here for 1 year you will not learn anything new.
    - No working on new technologies, in the name of technology they just work on SQL and MDX queries and Power BI.
    - Long working hours sometimes people stay there for almost 15-20 hours
    - No more new projects are coming because the clients have also realised that this is the worst company.
    - CEO expects you to reach office by 8:45 AM and then the company expects you to work till midnight to meet the client deadlines
    - They fire people without giving any notice period
    - The CEO thinks himself as the CEO of a company like Microsoft or Google. His lecture sessions are the worst. He supports all the cons present in the company and his only solution is to leave the company if you have any problem.
    - The HR team just comes in the office to drink the free coffee and gossip all the day in the balcony.

    It's better to sit at home and prepare for other companies rather than joining this company.

    Advice to Management

    Only one advice to this company please do not play with the career of young graduates. Value the work of the employees and remove the CEO since he is good for nothing.

    Pros

    To the outside world-Halfyearly hikes
    Reality- You have to do a lot of stupid certification with your own money. You have to keep your manager and team lead happy not necessarily by work.
    So actually there are no pros of working in this company

    Cons

    Oh god thats a huge list
    1. They have got no good projects.
    2. Hikes are not for people who work hard, but for people who constantly please their manager and team leads not by work but by other means.
    3. You will be forced to come as early as 8:45 AM and if you fail to do it, your manager will threaten you openely about your next salary hike.
    4. If your relationship with your team lead is good, you are safe and you will get good ratings, even if you are too bad at your work. On the other hand if you are talented and have a little self esteem and doesn't want to please people with other means, you are totally not safe. I have seen cases where a female​ employee gets constant hikes and promotions because she lets her manager do inappropriate things with her during and after office.
    5. They will check your intime and outtime, if they found that you are giving only 8 to 9 hours daily in company which is more than what we are paid for, your manager will ask you if you have less work or in some cases may even fire you. The expectation is that you must never work less than 13-15 hours.
    6. No respect for female employees. They can ask you to work till 12 in the night and then nobody cares how you are going home. Ladies living with families can manage this situation somehow, but what about the single women living alone. For them its a real problem. I have seen some female employees staying in office till morning due to this.
    7. You will be made to complete certification based on which they ask Microsoft for projects. But you have to pay yourself for these costly certificates and if you pass you will get reimbursed else your money went in vain. There is no value of these certificates outside this company.
    8. You will be called to work on Saturdays based on project needs and you will not be paid anything for that day.
    9. No job security. Seen too my cases of premature contract termination and even permanent full time offers get terminated. Seen few cases like people from NITs and IITs are getting fired within just 4-5 months of employment just because they were new in projects and there was a need to cut down budget.
    10. DO NOT JOIN THIS COMPANY. If you do not want to ruin your future. They may show you attractive salary structure but that's all fake. They need contract workers for few months so they attract people with salaries and fire them later. They dont even give any notice or compensation on firing.
    11. Last advice to all the people who are about to join this company. PLEASE DON'T​. They must have offered good packages at NITs and IITs but seriously do not fall for it. That's just a trap. People from good colleges trust me, you do not want this black spot on your career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing with the future of young graduates. This company can never grow. Even after so much hiring, every time I see the strength gets back to 150 to 200. Shut it down if you have no idea of running a company.

    Pros

    You will be given responsibilities at very early stage as compared to responsibilities given at the same stage in other companies.

    Cons

    1. You would be hired on contract of 3 months and could be fired withing 2 months, reason they will give: NO PROJECT
    2. You would be hired on contract of 15 months and could be fired withing 7 months, reason they will give: NO PROJECT
    3. You would be hired as Permanent and could be fired withing a year, reason they will give: NO PROJECT
    PLEASE DON'T EVER JOIN THIS COMPANY !! THINK 100 TIMES BEFORE TAKING THIS STEP! DON'T GET CAUGHT WITH THEIR SALARY OFFERS ! IT'S A FAKE !!

    Pros

    You can join this company as an intern only.(Not more than for 3 months).You can learn only SQL and MDX concepts.The company will make you come to office by 8:45(Even if you have nothing to work on).The company will make you eat healthy foods(canteen where only salads and bananas are served).

    Cons

    The company is talented in hiring and firing people.Not a good place to work for IITIAN/NITIANs.The work here is just copy/paste.Managers and POCs in this company wouldn't value your work and efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Employees working in this company are treated like a labour.They are got given enough respect for their work.They are provided cab facilities.It became very difficult for female employees to work in this company.

    I worked at MAQ Software (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a fresher and you are willing to work hard and personal life is something that you are not bothered about, then it's a perfect match. Sincere advice, don't stay for more than 1.5- 2 years in this company. Why I am saying 1.5 years is you will get to know about the corporate world, take a good hike and move on.
    Good hikes but heard recently they have removed this too. The quality managers are already out of the company, now it's a company of afs.

    Cons

    Poor and sucking Management
    Will train(so-called Bootcamp) you on A and projects will be on Z
    The director is a loser, he thinks himself as the CEO of Microsoft and the CEO: more than a waste, just attend his one session and you will get to know about him, students in their colleges gives a better presentation than him)
    Outdated technologies when you will come out then you'll realize.

    Advice to Management

    Close this company asap
