    Pros

    I am a current employee, working as a senior test engineer in System Test. A good and cool company to work with for self growth,technological growth. Directors and leads are good and supporting for good work environment. In my 1.5 year here till now, I didnt find anything negative about my team or company.
    Superb work culture and good learning opportunity.
    Compensation on par with Industry.
    Very good technology SDN,NFV which is the future of world.
    Supportive colleagues and team leads.
    Free of mind while working, even it triggers us to work in a motivated way as we dont have work pressure here. We do more from our heart not by pressure. This environment I liked a lot.

    The main thing I liked is the transparency in my team and work life balance. I was never pressurized my boss till today for work related stuffs. Its just a Mutual understanding between the manager and our lead.

    Cultural events are quite happening very often for festivals. HR is also good.

    I will happily recommend any one joining this company .

    Cons

    I 'dont have any concern.

    Advice to Management

    All the best for solutions team,connector team and the whole Overture as its driving the future SDN market of the globe. I am sure Overture will click and glitter sparks in this SDN/NFV field.

    Pros

    - Good work-life balance.
    - Timely update on company sale, revenue and company focus for future.
    - Good technology and tools to work for.
    - Time to time some technical presentations do happens which enhance your skill set.
    - Company vision is clear on SDN, NFV(Network virtualization) but products are not up to the mark which hindering revenue.

    Cons

    - Some leads spoiling the environment with politics in the office, they don't do any work except doing buttering to management so they are not accountable for any work but others have to show their work
    - Some leads only work in the night time, most of the mails only come from them in the night to show off their work to top management and unfortunately top management recognizes them.
    - Very less budget on employees facility.
    - Company policy is not uniform across employees.

    If you are passionate for your work and less on buttering then don't join Overture.

    Advice to Management

    Please take best action based on above review to make Overture best place to work for everyone, not to only some people.

    Pros

    Lot of design challenges for FPGA design. Pushing the limits of parts and solving complicated design and timing issues.

    Cons

    Smaller company so not much room for growth. Some of the design work seems to be moving overseas. Big picture views for the future, but implementation and meeting customer needs in a timely manner doesn't happen enough.

    Pros

    I have been working in overture India past 1.2 years. Here in the company we are working on
    cutting edge technologies like SDN and NFV.

    Lot of learning opportunities. Freedom at work.

    My Manager is technically good and at times pitch in and discuss the real use cases
    which help us to resolve the issues. He is always there with us to resolve the obstacles that come in our way

    Regular one on one meetings with manager helps to get early feedback and discuss career aspirations
    Based on my interest the kind of assignments have come to me

    Team is very cooperative and collaboration across the teams in overture is good

    They always recognize the results and hard work and encourage team by giving awards

    Cons

    I don't feel there are any

    Advice to Management

    You are doing the best, please continue the same

    Pros

    Interesting JAVA work. Good promising projects in Ensemble, Orchestration and SDN
    Good Salary
    Good benefits
    Timely updates on company strategy

    Cons

    In this company the shrewd Mallu management have ensured that there is one set of rules and expectations for Mallus and another for rest of company ...
    This means you can be assured you are not over burdened by work, u can skip DSM.. you given many leave and no one ask when you come and go .. but others have high expectations to meet and are chucked out of the company for even small lapses
    This company is clearly divided on ethnic & lingual lines and the discrimination is evident though the management thinks it goes unnoticed.
    small company with big dreams and even bigger politics..... not the right place if you believe in hard work, ethics and fairness.

    Advice to Management

    Hope the management @ RTP looks into this un-ethical practice before the current management ruin the life of good engineers
