    I have been working at Optra Group of Companies full-time

    Pros

    A clear vision, great rapport and innovative products

    Cons

    growing rapidly causing discomfort to lazy employees

    Advice to Management

    Create strong legal procedures to crush those 7 employees fired for their misbehavior and code stealing else they will keep writing such nonsense as posted on 19th June and late 2016. They are clear liars and hence using Glass Door as a Spit-bowl.

    I worked at Optra Group of Companies (More than a year)

    Pros

    A pay check...better than being unemployed

    Cons

    Where should I start...?

    Management - Terrible management. The CEO is treats employees with utter disrespect. This created a very negative environment. I witnessed two nervous breakdowns in one year!

    Business - Smoke and mirrors. I was at the OPTRA for about a year and never saw any new business. The few accounts the company did have were always in some state of chaos and threatening to leave. The company would lie about its size and capabilities to prospective clients. OPTRA is a much smaller company that it presents itself to be. I saw more failures than successes during my time there.

    Review - Please read these reviews before taking a position with Optra. Notice that most of the reviews are very negative (1 or 2 stars) and a few are glowing (5 stars). That later are writin by OPTRA HR and CEO to offset REAL reviews.

    When interviewing do your due diligence and ask about the financial health of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. Conduct yourself with honesty and integrity when dealing with your clients / employees and your business will improve. Learn from your mistakes or your small business will fail.

    Pros

    Caring people. Owner loves his company and is dedicated to it. Has a good vision.

    Cons

    No real direction or leadership. This company needs some focus. Just because you have a special pricing program does not mean people will buy.

    Advice to Management

    Step back a little and let the people you hire do their job. Don't question their motives.

    I have been working at Optra Group of Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * If you are a strong person with no moral values, there are higher learning opportunities.

    Cons

    * No time flexibility.
    * No leave policy
    * No respect, trust and faith in their employees
    * They follow the policy of not keeping their words
    * Senior staff has no respect for new joiners and existing employees. Anybody can be demoted, yelled, terminated any time. So far in my tenure of 1 year I have seen 6 employees leaving and 2 terminated.

    Advice to Management

    A company's biggest strength is its employees. Keep them happy, stay ethical and you will regain your lost respect.
