    I worked at Marlabs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very good with client base and recruiting team.

    Cons

    Less clients in Bay Area

    Advice to Management

    California Bay Area should be your near future one of office base.


  2. "Worst if you break the contract"

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

    Pros

    1) Good placement rates
    2) Okish accommodation
    3) Shuttle service for drop and pick-up
    4) They file H1-B for you (is what I have heard)

    Cons

    1) Create your own fake resume
    2) They say training will be in-class but there are two professors for JAVA batch. One teaches from India using webinars. The second professor teaches in-class.
    3) Training videos are extremely long and tiring. The professor's accent is a huge issue. They go over the syllabus for training really fast. You barely get time to catch up.
    4) And WORST OF ALL, they make you pay $9000 if you break the contract, no matter how many days you were with them. It's extremely unfair to ask a student for $9000 if he/she has only stayed for couple of weeks.

    Advice to Management

    The contract breaking penalty should be reduced and should be made fair for students.

    Advice to Management

    I read most of the reviews before joining and now as well. They need to do some modifications to the Marketing team structure as well as the way it operates. This helps the company to grow faster.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment for senior people

    Cons

    The quality team (SQA) who is heading does not have any quality. He is the main culprit in Marlabs . He grabbed the office shifting from admin team and set up an office with poor infrastructure and looted more than half of the budget from the company. Because of this employees are suffering a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Management should seriously take an action against this kind of culprit
