    I have been working at Pantheon (Virginia) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to grow, the company is growing at a rapid pace, opportunities galore.
    If you like a fast paced environment, this is the place.
    Very process driven company, and open to new ideas and ways of doing things.
    Ideal company if you are from an engineering background.
    Very good compensation structure. Great benefits for employees including full health insurance coverage and 401K etc.....

    Cons

    Nothing significant other than training opportunities, could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Set clearer standards and goals for various teams both in and outside the US.
    Improve training opportunities for all employees

    Pros

    Innovative product teams, agile and nimble and adapt to customer needs. Amazing breadth of technical knowledge in core teams.

    Cons

    Product teams create a very challenging environment to work with and only very savvy and hardworking engineers make it.

    Advice to Management

    Too flat org structure which is not conducive for all types of teams.

    Pros

    I worked with Pantheon for exactly an year and found it to be a place which has enormous potential. The organization is growing in India. It is a mix of software product development and IT services.

    Cons

    Lot of attrition for a small company like this, especially in the Chennai office.

    Advice to Management

    Experienced employees must be valued in a much better way.

    Pros

    Good company to work for is one has interest in growing technically.
    Opportunities to grow from a work standpoint are numerous. Being a product company as well, the company is setup in such a way that it is easy to move from one area to another if you have the interest.
    Not a place to work if you just want a salary! Good place if you want to grow from a career standpoint. They work on some cutting edge technology and there is no better place to get this exposure.
    Beats working as a support engineer in a larger MNC any day, where you are not given any responsibilities. You are told what to do in other companies, here we are encouraged to take initiative.
    Salary levels are on the high side for a company this size, pays better than many large MNC's.

    Cons

    Company should provide some more training, current levels are probably not enough in my mind and overseas onsite opportunities.
    India management is still learning the Pantheon way, it feels like this sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Increase opportunities to work onsite in the US or Asia Pacific, especially for deserving team members.
    Please continue making management changes as done in the recent past.

    Not a place for people who want to waste their time and just earn a paycheck.

    I worked at Pantheon (Virginia) full-time

    Pros

    NONE.. Believe me you find yourself stuck in ADSTUCK...

    Cons

    - No specific path that defines career growth or describes how you can move through ranks.
    - People are great in all the teams, but there are no events that brings these people together on a regular basis.
    - Personnel turnover is high(in terms of both resignations and lay-offs). someday you are working on a project with someone, next day they are gone.
    - Lack of communication between company and upper-management. Employees feel dissatisfied with the lack of answers(or answers that we know are made up) and communication on some decisions(ex. change in management).
    - Lack of recognition and employee appreciation program.
    - No salary slip will be given every month.
    - No Employer Contribution in PF part.
    - No Medical Insurance
    - No Cab Facility
    - No Shift Allowance
    - Bad coffee
    - Always bad experience I faced from the time I joined this company. They do not bother about employees. They bother only about rules.
    - Every day I used to see employees are resigning job. Also heard from some employees they are going to quiet soon. In my whole experience. I never seen this kind of worst company. ONLY ONE WORD ABOUT THIS COMPANY IS , ..... IF U WANTED TO SPOIL YOUR LIFE, CAREER... YOU CAN JOIN…..
    - Extremely high termination and turn-over rates. You will see many employees come and go -- frequently, which is not good, and quite scary. The downside of "at-will" employment. Upper executive management "will" abuse their authority to enforce project deadlines, and to meet their selfish needs and gains. Make mistakes and underperform just a bit .... you're gone, period. Long work hours and weeks, because you're all salaried employees ,management will take full advantage of this.

    - If you're looking for daunting structural pitfalls, poor career trajectory, false promises, and those cliche 'stay the course, things are looking up' motivational speeches when things seem to be falling apart all around you, you've come to the right place. This is a poorly run company that was once the next big thing in predictive analytics but is now struggling to appear "ahead of the pack" in a rapidly growing market just long enough to be eaten by a bigger fish.

    Advice to Management

    - Please add a monthly employee recognition program. One day of the month, bring the company together, give the upper management a chance to share company updates for the past month with the rest of the employees, have awards or some kind of recognition to provide more visibility to hard-working people at lower ranks and make this a part of the CJ culture.
    - Define a path for all departments & positions which shows your new employees on where they can be in the company in 5 years or something like that.
    - Getting a second opinion from different lawyers on employee related issues might help retaining talent.
    - All in all, lack of communication is a very big issue. The sooner it is resolved, the better it would be for the company.
    - Stop abusing your authority, and treat your employees with respect and dignity. Ease down a bit on your turn-over policies will ya ? And play fair for once.
    - Look at the culture. Look at the leaders you've hired. Are they good people? Are they there for the right reasons? Would you want them telling you what to do? Some of the managers aren't leaders, and some of the leaders aren't in management positions. It doesn't take data science to see that.

    - Many leaders are joined in this company with their fake experience.
    - Listen to the employees working in the trenches its a good view of reality.
    - Teams across the company are stretched, hire more people.
    - Formal training for new hires would get them upto speed instead of every new group re-inventing the wheel

    Direct client interaction experience is a worth factor

  10. "Dont join in Chennai pantheon branch - Worst Politics ”"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    None - there is nothing good about this company

    Cons

    Can’t keep talented individual to stay.
    Micro-Management issue
    Fear – They lead by fear and think that’s a effective way to manage people.
    Arrogance
    Control – They need to control everything you do.
    You will regret. You are not "permanent" even if you signed your offer letter as permanent. When the client returned you back to the company, they will stop your salary and left you hanging. No letter, No salary, No explanation. All they saying; You dont have to come to the office. All the promises that they will working to get you a project is just a lies. They scam to local people.
    If you stay for a long time then your family life will be spoiled due to pressure put by organization.
    If you ask why for geniune things,they will terminate you in 1 hour.
    The management of the company is worst.
    Reviews like temple of knowledge and great learning experience are all fake & false. Please note once again they are totally fake. These good reviews are put by the management people for recruitment purpose only.
    One can see their real bad face and behavior only after joining the company.
    I request and appeal all software engineers in India not to join this company.
    Breach of other's personal life is the favorite time passing of everyone here.
    HR has no clue as to what is happening. Appraisal process is not transparent.
    The three founders don't know what they're doing. They make poor decisions and good people end up losing their jobs. They literally turn over entire teams every six months.
    They have a bad name in the market because they burn so many bridges with clients.

    Has been a start up for too long. The product development happens as if you are 6 months old startup company but their is a huge technological debt that it has acquired in past 10 years. Career growth opportunities are less as you will be mostly codding even after 7-8 years of experience.
    Work-life balance is non-existent, the problem is not the amount of work but the out-look of upper management towards employees.
    Carrot and stick philosophy.
    They hold your Full & Final for months after your resignation and never give a positive feedback about ex-employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give respect to talent and do not spoil.
    Be fare,stop doing politics.It is disgusting
    Do not eat credits of good work of talented employees.
    Get replacements for yourselves, the company might have a chance. worst leadership I've seen, bunch of people who never worked in a real office prior. the people who you don't care about your staff, are people, they have things going on at home, bills to pay. You care about none of that. No one in nyc can live off most the salaries you give, so literally most of your work force live in poverty, all of management lives pretty well. Go back to school and retake harvard's ethics class over and over until it sinks in..
    Do not hire another person to work at your company until you know for sure if its worth keeping open. So many people were let go that didn't even get the chance to grow into their role. Its hard to be successful and gain traction when no one knows about your company, or if they do, they have heard bad things about the company.
