    Pros

    Great place to learn new technology. Lots of employee perks - Profit sharing, stock purchase plan with 50% match, good benefits, lots of free food. Great people.

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be a very well defined promotion path. Work-life balance can be a bit difficult at times, but it isn't a constant worry. Company growth(revenues) needs to increase.

    I have been working at Sandvine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good Pay
    2. Even though it's been 15 years since it started, Sandvine still looks like start up kind of environment that means more work and more learning.
    3. Free Breakfast, Lunch, Evening Snacks and Dinner Reimbursement,
    4. Pay structure is good.
    5. Work life balance is OK.
    6. Good Work From Home option.
    7. Awesome health policy.

    Cons

    It has more cons than pros however I tired to list it down.

    1. Poor, inactive and powerless HR in Bangalore office.
    2. Lack of good Fun events.
    3. No employee friendly policies.
    4. A week spent here feels like spent a month, so much of work.
    6. 6months of Probation period is not good.
    7. Hires lot of fresher hence no code quality maintained.
    8. Poor top management. TOP management doesn't have good vision hence even after 15 years its very very small company.
    9. Very Slow growing company.
    10. Workaholic people.
    But still good place to spend a year. If you spend a year here you will be working very fastly.

    Don't spend more than 2 years here.

    Advice to Management

    Try to groom good development mangers who has good vision about their product.
    Have good HR team in Banglore office and change some policies in favour of employees which will help you to retain staff.

    Lot of learning.
    Very talented people around.

    Too much work to be done in short span of time. So work pressure is tremendous.

    Pros

    Work is good and planning is good in general.
    Some of the tech guys are amazing.

    Cons

    Assumes that you are good in everything. The responsibility of everything is passed on to you. I don't like this way of work.
    Work pressure continues to be very high despite planning. Blame both Management and Developers. This is my second review of the company.
    Some Managers have caste bias which is evident

    Advice to Management

    Enforce fairness in employee reviews
