    I have been working at WSO2 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work in R&D space. Getting exposed in to entire wso2 SOA stack including customer engagements to work in front if real customer. WSO2 treats the employees very well.

    Cons

    It might not be the best paying company around, but they treat employees good enough. Due to the rapid expansion, most of the time the work place and old culture seems deviating from what it was earlier.

    Advice to Management

    Should consider quality aspect more when expanding WSO2 Engineering. Also WSO2 has a rotational based model for people to work with R&D stuff as well as customer related stuff. For some people that might be too context switching even though I found it very exciting and excellent.

    I worked at WSO2 full-time

    Pros

    The company has a great culture and good salaries. It's not just work, work, work but there are a lot of other activities such as basketball tournaments, motor ralleys, parties, karaoke's and stuff - never a dull moment at WSO2. The CEO is a great visionary, inspiring and down to earth and puts his team and employees ahead of everything. This is the only company I've been in with an HR that actually cares about its employees rather than try to screw them over.

    Cons

    Sometimes people in higher positions can get away with BS.

    I have been working at WSO2 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wow where should I begin? Very good interview process, good HR , lots of activities like basketball, fitness programs , badminton and many more. The culture is the main attraction here. There is no blame game in the company. Free breakfast , almost free lunch and dinner on demand. The top management engages with all staff. There is no "Boss" mode but a Humble leader. Very good travel opportunities and has a good post grad study sponsor program. Always trying to innovate and ahead of the curve compared to other companies in the city. Policies are fair and applied equally regardless position.

    Cons

    Company products could use more quality testing. There is also a need for proper task and time management as most of the employees are overworked sometimes. Pay could be better for a company that requires you to work with the depth of technology used.parking at headquarters is abit hectic even though there are 4 car parks.Very hard to have work life balance.trying to make the customer happy by overworking the employee at times.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see a proper time/project management strategy for engineering teams like support and product teams. No company is perfect but you guys are doing a very good job. The above comments were my individual as well as most of the employees thoughts.
