    I have been working at Serene Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working with Serene Corporation for about 4 years. I have been part of pre-sales team for the most part and it has been a great journey. Below are few things which I personally like about Serene Corporation.

    1) Great to work with talented individuals, who have very good industry knowledge, functional and technical skills.
    2) Good amount of learning opportunities and the ability to move across technologies and industry verticals.
    3) Serene encourages employees to undergo various technology trainings & certifications. Always provides ample learning opportunities.
    4) Great leadership team, highly motivated, aggressive and focused. Have mentored me all through and this has helped me learn and grow my career over time.
    5) Flexible work timings, ability to telecommute, work remotely when required, as far as work is getting done no one has an issue.
    6) Great work culture and ethics. No nonsense no politics.

    Cons

    Cant think of Cons !

    But yes sometimes work is hectic, and it becomes difficult balance out life. But there are other times when work life is balanced out too !

    Pros

    Almost all the people you work with at Serene are smart and top notch. Complete flexibility as far as you get your work done, which is what everyone loves I think. But most important to me is the excellent learning while working on 10+ projects in 3 years - they are leaders and at the cutting edge at the center of the cloud strategy of Oracle. Lots of new brand name customers and employees - the momentum is there, with all the changes. My previous company everyone was always anxious where the next big project is going to come from - not Serene.

    Cons

    There are spikes in work where the balance goes for a toss. You are expected to do what it takes to get things successful and managers jump into the details so can get seriously busy at the tail end of projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going that has started since a year. Don't go back on the changes made that are working and the flexibility/quality of resources

    Pros

    If you are on technical side and willing to trade your sleep, happiness, family life for decent exposure to new technologies, this company is for you.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Right from Marketing to Pre-sales to All levels of management are professional liers. So much so. You go on their web site right now and see if you see Paresh Kapadia listed under management team..He is the Co-CEO of the company besides Ajit Kumbhare (His visiting card says so as well). This omission is deliberate, As he goes around posing as a different person during pre-sales and marketing pitches under different pseudonyms.
    And BTW in my PROs I wrote this company gives you decent exposure to new technologies. What I meant was, they win projects claiming they are the experts in certain technologies and produce inaccurate testimonies. And once they win the projects they toss who ever is availabel into the project and from there on its sink or swim for that individual. If he fails while trying.. the failure will be held against that poor individual.
    These guys have been taken to court multiple times by their customers for misrepresentation.

    Advice to Management

    Now that you have achieved the critical mass a company needs to sustain, Please reinvest in people and seriously overhaul your management practices. Some degree of deceit in business is OK and can be attributed to circumstances and competition, but making it THE way to conduct business will not pave your way to success.

    Company has turned a corner with the partners at top really made a lot of strides in the time I was there. Great focus on customer sucess, smart people, good salaries, you can go from CRM to MDM and back

    Cons

    Typical growing pains, need to perform everyday!

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Org Hierarchy and employee feedback more than you do!

    Pros

    Very competitive environment. Every one at Serene "Earns" bread. No idle mouths.

    Cons

    They under bid every opportunity and seem to be in a hurry to get projects at all cost, setting unrealistic goals to employees at times.

    Advice to Management

    Nice marketing and technical team.
