Pros

Too much and unexpected salary hike...!!!!!

Cons

There is issue with salary... I don't like the salary month structure (from 21st of month#1 till 20th of month#2) there. I have references to other companies, with 200+ employees they still give salary by the end of the month but here it is on 10th of month#3. There is no fixed so called log on or off time... I have experienced that people work late night here, I am so not into it. I don't like coming and working on any weekend, here it seemed to be quite often here. You can come anytime but you have to stay there for 9 hours, even if you don't have any work! The management thinks, you are slave to them and if you don't come to office on weekends, when ever needed, you are committing a crime. There is no work and life balance... I never thought shift time of 12:00 pm would be so much trouble some to me. And in future I may have to stay late night so it is kind of unpleasant for me. So I think I may can get toppled off the balance. I have noticed, people leave late night and has to come even early on the next day. Transport problem... The office is at Rajarhat, New Town; near Rishi Tech Park. On the way to office I find it is not easy to get transport, though I get Bus or shuttle from Airport Bus Stand. But on way back it is really hard to get any transport at all, I had to call Cab to reach every day. I don't like the project and all... The project handling is not up to the standard, it seemed no one has clues of anything what so ever. That is what making it slow and people need to stay for long hours to find and fix the issues. Thank God I left with in a few days to get back to the previous job. Please don't go there unless you have no other better job!

Advice to Management

WOW! Making people work more than 8 hour, day in and day out, is a crime! 'Do it now!', is possible when you are giving proper knowledge and material to the people who are working on the product.

The management thinks, you are slave to them and if you don't come to office on weekends, when ever needed, you are committing a crime.

Pros

They have some good projects, and you can learn a lot working here.

Cons

The management is absolutely horrible. They have no respect for the employees, and I have seen some really, really immature people working here. It's no wonder the attrition rate is so high.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to micromanage your employees. In the end it just harms the productivity.

The management is absolutely horrible.

Pros

Better pay packages compared to Kolkata and within its peers

Cons

Sweatshop, No respect for employees, Don't believe in investing in employees, No HR policies, Family business - CEO and his family have a strong hold over day-to-day operations and decisions are taken as per the mood swings of these members. Unethical management - everything from headcount, international office locations etc is fake. They even force their employees to write favorable reviews on glassdoor and social sites.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect. There is a particular corporate culture of mutual respect in IT industry. That should be maintained and should not be treated like a kirana shop.

Unethical management - everything from headcount, international office locations etc is fake.

Pros

- Good joining salary, more than any other mid-level company in Kolkata offers - Snacks, refreshments inside office - Project ideas are good for business - Work with good team members (till they are in the company, just that people don't stay)

Cons

- Horrible management - No work-life balance - Terrible behaviour from managers, they treat you with contempt and disrespect - Projects are not well maintained, no code quality - HR policies are non-existent, HR is puppet to Mr. CEO and Madam VP - Managers expect you to come in time, but leave very very late preferably, by midnight - Location: gets very far and no shuttle.

Advice to Management

Only one thing: Start understanding the fact that your employees are HUMAN beings. Just like you. Not robots, nor your servants just because you pay them more than other companies. Start respecting people.

- Horrible management
