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

    Pros

    Growth opportunities are good.
    Open door policy
    Great culture

    Cons

    No transperancy. No clarity in goals, execution and outcome. Everytime they plan new things and execute none. Lot of adhoc tasks

    Advice to Management

    They should communicate with employees about actual plans and not make up stories that will look good. They should be straight to communicate about a persons growth, role, expectations.

    Pros

    - Learning opportunity
       One will be able to learn popular technologies, depending on your ability to cope up with work. You have the opportunity to convince your team lead regarding technology to be used. The software experiences and technologies used here will be of great value when you want to leave Sokrati.

    - Work & Work culture
    Great work. The problems Sokrati is trying to solve using technology makes it an interesting company to work for. You will be easily able to WOW managers of other companies when you tell them about your experience of Sokrati. Good work culture. Many intelligent minds working here so you will be able to learn good software standards from these developers.

    - Work from Home policy & Timings
    Work from Home is a very good HR policy being followed at Sokrati. Anyone can work from home, just notify this to your team. Flexible timings, so you only need to focus on completing work.

    Cons

    - Software procedures
    Red tape in some software development procedures lead to frustration among software engineers and thereby causing increase in attrition rate.

    - Low pay
    Even though promotions are encouraged at Sokrati and promotions are termed as 'Self Appraisal', you cannot apply for one without approval of your Manager. The pay even after your promotions are low when compared to market.

    Advice to Management

    Though Sokrati is a very good company to work, the increasing unnecessary procedures in Software Development needs to be reduced. This will increase the efficiency of Product / Feature developed and increase satisfaction among developers.
