    I worked at The Alchemists Ark full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being a small company, you will get good exposure and responsibilities. Promoters/Directors are brilliant in client communication / client handling / problem solving - make the most of your time at the company by learning from them.

    Cons

    Though the Promoters/Directors are brilliant, that doesn't reflect in the company being a good employer. Top Management is a failure. You cant be sure what will happen 6 months down the line at this company.. Projects which are labelled as 'Consulting projects' are more of 'Training assignments' and than core consulting.
