    The people! I also like the fact that the company is growing so quickly that there are a lot of opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Netcracker Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent tech stack to work on. Co workers were chill and the work was not very demanding. Had a great work life balance as there was no stress involved.

    Cons

    Mediocre benefits and pay. The management is horrible and the hiring department is the worst. I have given inputs several times but none were implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice of your employees seriously and fire the HR department as they bring down the company image

    Pros

    Brilliant people, agile environment, able to deliver outstanding results in a flat industry, excellent opportunities to learn, travel and grow.

    Cons

    Pace can be tough for some people, due to the geographically disbursed nature of the company, employees need to be self-starters and driven without having someone "standing over them"

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate and provide opportunities and recognition for employees

    I worked at Netcracker Technology full-time

    Pros

    Excellent culture of collaboration, customer centric atmosphere making sure that the customer is always first priority.

    Cons

    There are some culture issues when working with Russian team some times they are not open to discuss issues with you.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that there is open communication between the teams and develop a culture of honesty among all delivery teams. There should not be any secrets among the different teams.

    I worked at Netcracker Technology full-time

    Pros

    There are an abundance of talented employees at NetCracker. The pay and benefits are really good as well.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency in job expectations and reviews. This was quite possibly the worst place I have worked. I was not treated with respect and was expected be more of a personal assistant than an expert in my job. There were no documented policies and procedures and things were expected and never communicated. I met some great people at this company but overall it was a mistake ever taking the job.

    I have been working at Netcracker Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are one of the biggest 'pros' at Netcracker. Hardworking and insanely intelligent employees are found in every office and remote location. I find it inspiring and motivating to be at work every day, with new challenges to stretch my mind and kind supportive people are at every turn. CEO or G&A it is all a mutual respect for a team that is working towards a common success goal.

    Cons

    Honestly, I can't think of anything negative to say. I really enjoy being here.
