    I worked at Softway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Have to think of it.

    Cons

    1) No proper employement policies 2) Only for "YES" boss kind of people can survive 3) Home grown at top position have no people management skills 4) They interferes in everyones work and micro manages 5) Why you get recruited, god only knows. May be someone wants to get promoted inside 6) They may ask you to leave anytime, abruptly without any reasons 7) No emotions, No professionalism May be good for... freshers who are in need for a job but experienced just keep yourself away

    Good work environment Very good company for anybody who starts here.

    Cons

    Packages are a bit lower than other IT organisations,

    Advice to Management

    Give more importance to experienced emp. Please don't wait for emp to complain/ask for their benefits. Think about employees promotions and other benefits they need. 2 years employment agreement is not acceptable tor experienced employee, please think about it.

    I worked at Softway full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you are Muslim you will get involved in live project immediately even if you are fresher. Muslim based Capital "M" company. All Muslims will become Directors once they get Gray Hairs.

    Cons

    If you are Non Muslim they will put you in bench for years for freshers as well as experienced candidates.. For Non Muslims No growth. They never care about Non Muslim's Growth. This is 100% true. They get small modules and call that as projects. Once in 2 / 4 months they will put you in different platform. You wont become expert here. and NO ONE IS EXPERT HERE in any specific TECHNOLOGY. Directors,... Management people always look into your TIMESHEETS. They never care about what you know. They always care about what kind of project they got. If you DON't KNOW LARAVEL they will put into LARAVEL. If you don't know ROR they will put you into ROR. Then why the recruit for you as CAKE PHP. CEO told company gets only 2% profit in one of the conference. How big false info it is? Last year Top management recruited 20 years experienced CTO. But what happened now?. Where are Senior HR, CTO? ( They are non Muslim )
