    Pros

    I have been working in overture India past 1.2 years. Here in the company we are working on
    cutting edge technologies like SDN and NFV.

    Lot of learning opportunities. Freedom at work.

    My Manager is technically good and at times pitch in and discuss the real use cases
    which help us to resolve the issues. He is always there with us to resolve the obstacles that come in our way

    Regular one on one meetings with manager helps to get early feedback and discuss career aspirations
    Based on my interest the kind of assignments have come to me

    Team is very cooperative and collaboration across the teams in overture is good

    They always recognize the results and hard work and encourage team by giving awards

    Cons

    I don't feel there are any

    Advice to Management

    You are doing the best, please continue the same

    Pros

    Lot of design challenges for FPGA design. Pushing the limits of parts and solving complicated design and timing issues.

    Cons

    Smaller company so not much room for growth. Some of the design work seems to be moving overseas. Big picture views for the future, but implementation and meeting customer needs in a timely manner doesn't happen enough.

    Pros

    Interesting JAVA work. Good promising projects in Ensemble, Orchestration and SDN
    Good Salary
    Good benefits
    Timely updates on company strategy

    Cons

    In this company the shrewd Mallu management have ensured that there is one set of rules and expectations for Mallus and another for rest of company ...
    This means you can be assured you are not over burdened by work, u can skip DSM.. you given many leave and no one ask when you come and go .. but others have high expectations to meet and are chucked out of the company for even small lapses
    This company is clearly divided on ethnic & lingual lines and the discrimination is evident though the management thinks it goes unnoticed.
    small company with big dreams and even bigger politics..... not the right place if you believe in hard work, ethics and fairness.

    Advice to Management

    Hope the management @ RTP looks into this un-ethical practice before the current management ruin the life of good engineers

    Pros

    Not able to recollect any but they pay salary on time .
    1.They practice hire and fire policy .
    2. Lack of vision , no proper planning, horrible work environment.
    3. Substandard ,inept, immature development directors.
    4. Dev leads who are far from having any technical abilities,hardly work but steal all the credits .

    Cons

    1.They don't have uniform compensation policy or any policy.
    2.Year on year revenue collection decreasing, new products aren't selling , most hardwires are into maintenance phase.
         New SW solutions are on paper ,yet to get translated into products or profit.

    Advice to new joins : Don't get lured by the money offered , dyeing Overture specially bangalore centre has an expiry date written onto it already. Moreover director-lead duo's politics will kill your peace of mind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time in guessing who would have written this. Instead try to troubleshoot the situation if you want to.

    Pros

    There is ample scope for very good Technology related work.

    Cons

    Few souls around feel they are under paid, however the compensation is very competitive. I was provided very good work and successfully completed them BUT one of the Lead snatched the credit away.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the Leads away from people management. Hold the Managers accountable and have them spend adequate amount of time with team members.

    Pros

    Overtorture Networks best suits this company name in India.GM India and HR listens your concerns and pretends as if they are resolving the issue,but they were bluffing RTP Management and young Indian engineers.

    Cons

    Micro Management.Credits will be taken by Managers and lead and blame will be given to engineers.Really pathetic and PI(M)P Managers and Directors. Young Indian engineers don't spoil your career at just looking at salary and product based company.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up RTP Management and take appropriate action to correct the Indian management otherwise it will totally ruin the

    Pros

    No single best reason to work here. No corporate culture. Unprofessional or Unethical environment. Every movement of yours is tracked & harassed in many different ways. Management wants to hear to you but doesn't want to take any ACTION. Full of promises, nothing in reality.

    Cons

    Management doesn't want to embrace or understand employees views/ideas. No job security. You need to "butter" the management, for you to be in there good books. Not an ideal/appropriate place for sensitive people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing with the careers of employees.... Hope the management @ RTP looks into this before the current management ruin the life's of budding young employees. The India management do not allow employees live their dreams.

    Pros

    Good Salary

    Cons

    Management and leads in Bangalore, India are very misleading, and highly inept. They hardly do any work except doing meetings and pulling the legs of engineers. The work culture is very bureaucratic, very authoritative, lacks transparency. It is small company culture, people who have been part of big companies please stay away since you will find it very difficult to adjust to it.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, become technically stronger do some homework. Get more involved with the work rather than call for futile meetings all the time.
