    John CEO is some what better.
    He don't have much involvement when concerning any issues. Mute spectator.

    Initially I thought I should not write any review about the pathetic company, but I realist if it helps someone it’s good for them then suffer latter.
    Whenever I think about this company it feels WHAT… I WORKED WITH SICK PEOPLE.
    Big NO NO NO from my side.

    I worked at Softcrylic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with Softcrylic for almost 3.2 years as Automation Engineer. Its really a great place to work and learn. They value people and their skills. Visibility for onsite is good if you are technically strong. Technically learning curve is enormous and able to challenge even highly experienced people in the industry . I am able to see that, when i got appreciations from my seniors from the company i joined now.

    Cons

    Not much benefits
    Though its in center of the city, employees will be more if pick and drop facilities are taken care

    Advice to Management

    Request to add to more clients

    Need serious thinking for changing

    I worked at Softcrylic full-time

    Pros

    Softcrylic is the best place to grow technically and also professionly. The work environment is challenging with each day having new different challenges. There is no repeated task as such. During my tenure, I have been working on various projects covering Web service testing, Functional testing, mobile Automation testing etc. Flexible work timings provides some time to take care of our personal work as well. Always opportunity to learn new technology and provide solution for the complex problems. Have freedom to implement our own ideas and opportunity to take various roles like core java developer, UI development, Automation testing, web service testing etc. The best part is that company provides free cab for late night work and avails dinner as well. Most importantly on site opportunity is provided even before completing one year! All employee are allowed to communicate with client and on site people resulting in good collaborative working culture. I recommend softcrylic to anyone who want the challenging career with technical growth oriented environment!

    Cons

    Sometimes the project deliverable timeline is very critical where work life balance is slightly distorted.

    Advice to Management

    1. Cubical Bay arrangement will helpful in increasing the employee work privacy.

    2. It would be nice if some vendor is available around the clock to get some snacks, fresh juices and other fast food items (Noodles)

    3. Helpful if frequent training session is conducted across latest technologies.
