    I have been working at Photon Infotech

    Pros

    I had a bad experience with this company. At first their document requirements ranged from every mark sheet and certificate to SSN and passport, they had me wait for 4 months post my interview to get me on the job, finally after I joined there were lot of on- boarding issues. After all this I finally started working and they had some contract issues and my login was off , they had different ways to handle issues and not reach out to client company and extremely poor planning on their end , to top it all their contract with the company had to come to an end within a month or so of my join. I had a bad experience with the company. They did send across the payment for the period but the expectation of wanting to cater to their company and no knowledge of a contract start or end date , makes this company a difficult company to work. As rosy as it may be seem this is not a company you would like to work.

    Cons

    As rosy as it may be seem this is not a company you would like to work.

    I worked at Photon Infotech full-time

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing to mention here.

    Cons

    1. Stealing ideas and portraying as theirs. 2. Have zero coding skills. all work is done by offshore and onsite guys take credit for that 3. Management outright lies in the meetings 4. No matter who are surrounded, they always talk in Tamil 5. Even in meetings where other language people are present, they shameless talk in Tamil. The list goes on and on. I do not want to waste more of my time listing all of that here. If you have TALENT, do not join this company.

    Pros

    The great coworkers that add true value to the organization and their clients that were tricked into thinking that Photon was unique. Photon May have been unique 8-10 years ago. If you enjoy being belittled, and quite frankly abused, by management within a group session perhaps you would be ok here.

    Cons

    Management is known to be abusive and seems to get enjoyment out of shaming “the chosen one” in a meeting or group setting among co-workers. If you go above & beyond, somehow leadership will twist it and make you regret your efforts. Let’s be clear, this is not constructive feedback - this is verbal abuse. Also, zero culture at this company. Zero. Zilch. None. Same with perks, non-existent.
