    I have been working at ProKarma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work / Life balance is good. Always pay on time.

    Cons

    Little or no communication from the HR or management. No employee relations. No one cares about anyone else. Lot of bureaucracy, no long term vision. Poorest management ever seen. Treats employee as a labor, if project is over employee is let off (even for full-timers) with no notice period. No culture or team work.

    No one knows what's happening in the company, client engagements, projects or resource requirements - everyone throws the ball to someone's else court. Ask the person who sent out the email for some referral positions and you end up finding six different people in the chain to get to the point that you complete a full circle.

    Very poor reimbursement policies and takes months to actually reimburse (needs four different people to get through).

    There are on average 10 non-billable staff to every one billable employee.

    Pros

    Flexible and understanding senior management. Compensation is above average. Strongly recommended if you need immigration sponsorship.

    Cons

    If need to pick something - limited direct clients which might make finding the next project a little bit worrisome at times. But the sales people are good and they are always working very hard to get more business for the company.

    I have been working at ProKarma as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After haggling with them for a bit I was able to get a good pay rate.

    Cons

    They are very deceptive. First off before I considered the job they were offering me I asked about benefits & how much they would cost. They quoted what I was lead to believe was a monthly amount. It turned out to be a per paycheck amount, which meant it was double what I thought it was.

    Much worse was the employment terms. I was told I it was a 6 month contract. They lied it was only a 6 week contract. It turned out that their contract with the client was for only 6 weeks with a possibility of extending to 6 months. I was told it was a 6 MONTH contract. I was never told it was only 6 weeks with a possibility of extending. One day I came to work, after having been there for several weeks and was told the job would be ending in a few days. I would never have taken the job if I knew it was only for 6 weeks. I never got an apology or any compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest

    upto some extend flexible working hours
    Women employees should not stay beyond 8.30pm any day
    helpful colleagues
    Learning environment

    Cons

    Micromanagement. They will try to learn everything from your daily activities to private life. small players. they know how to create fights and arguments within teams. they squeeze by giving mental pressure for getting more work. Seniors and above are really at a bad place

    Advice to Management

    stop micromanaging and reduce the stress in work. once stress management session was conducted by a psychologist from a private hospital, more than half the company was present in the session. stress is there for everyone from freshers to seniors
