    I worked at Zycus full-time

    Pros

    Flexible timings Good work life balance Amazing corporate culture Plethora of opportunities to learn and explore Good managers who know how to encourage subordinates well

    Cons

    None to be specific. Only thing they should improve is to increase the duration of training for freshers and select qualified trainer who knows how to teach technology well.

    Pros

    Flexible timings, which means you can come and go anytime.

    Cons

    (My review says more about the Merlin - AI team. Not sure for the other teams) Complete Ad-hoc management going on in Merlin, the AI Vertical of Zycus. No timelines, no schedules. Only what you'll hear is, get this done "ASAP". No Plans. All going Ad-hoc. No clear architecture laid out ever. No set coding standards. No version control. No best practices. Complete disconnect Between developers and clients. Total lack of experience onboard. No one has any idea of how to go on with an unprecedented problem. Simple blame game going on among teams. On the name of AI, You'll almost always be asked to use If-else! No code ethics, no use of scientific methods. Everyone's only Dancing on the boss' commands. Mostly No scope of inovation and Impactful Work at all. Clear over hiring, over commitment to clients and under management and hence always under delivery. Office is dingy and noisy, you just can't focus in the fish market created on the floor. Physical communication barriers among the teams causes Chaos and confusion. Everyone is just scared of the CEO's whip. Seems, no one confronts him to the facts. (Every resource on board is planning to leave asap. Those who could leave, have left already, while others are suffering.)

    Pros

    Got to learn a lot of technology. Flexible timing.

    Cons

    Worst management. People who have stayed for many years do not allow ideas of fresh people. They will pull you down. People put there personal egos ahead. People who run after managers and are not good at work get preference. Appraisal system is worst. People who bring major issues get more appraisal than other, People who do manual works get appraisal where as developers do not get any appraisal. Change your appraisal system. Manual works are being enforced in this tech company due to managers bad decision. Stupid decisions are taken by management in name of cost saving. Every weekend there is some major changes due to management bad decisions and employee gets call. No appraisal is unethical as developers have put there time and mind providing automations which have reduced much manual efforts. Post appraisal discussion stupid reasons are given for not giving appraisals even though employees have there work data. Do not let good developers /employees leave this company which is current scenario. Hire some knowledgeable candidate who can provide a proper road map. This amazing company is degrading coz of its management. Stable your infrastructure as well as products which will lead to less issue. Hiring alot of people is bad decisions. Hire less but efficient candidate. Freshers will not stay forever.

    Pros

    Great learning center Worked with some great minds who left zycus left ones are in the process of leaving btw.. Flexible timing

    Cons

    Flexible timing means any time support as well Bad management Biased directors Manual thing are being enforced on the developers in the name of shift left. They have a so called appraisal system (employees call it fraud) They will reviewed you based on the your reporting manager/lead (if he is favourite of the director your review is nothing less that 4/5 even if you have no live projects ) and it is directly proportional to the advertisement you do on the little work you have done. Best advertisers get zycat awards . People who sleep in office even get outstanding performer due to favouritism. Be lucky enough to get a management favourite lead (he will let you know the work advertisement tactics )
