Wonderful for the smart hard-workers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

Pros- Smart people, you will be surprised the time and effort the company invests in finding people
- Decent pay, average of the industry set of competitors, could be better
- Work smart, hard and long. As Jeff says, 2 of the 3 won't work :-)
- Strong sense of accomplishment when work is done

Cons- Too exhausting at times
- Management may not be transparent always
- Some managers would qualify politicians (really). Stay away from them and just exchange smiles, nothing more
- Recognition. There are few people waiting to shoot using your hardworking. Wonder how they got hired!

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lose the great people. Figure out how to really use peer feedback to weed out the political ones and your will have the best place to work in Bangalore. You are close already.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
