    I have been working at Calsoft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. On-time salary. 2. WFH option, though availing it is a task in itself. 3. Basic self and spouse insurance. (No insurance for dependants.) No other pros.

    Cons

    >>>. Work and culture 1. It is a typical service company and nothing else. Most of the work is support work. Learning opportunities will be very less and limited. 2. Most of the managers here have either outdated skills set or they are less technically inclined. They are more interested in micromanaging people under them and internal team politics, instead of implementing good software development and QA practices. This will further hamper learning and work. Also, they will often ask you to finish the work in unrealistic time frames because they do not know the technical details, often leading to clashes, frustration. There is huge trust deficit between managers and team members. >>>> Office and Facilities 1. The office building is OK OK but it is not maintained at all. You will find garbage throughout the complex even in working areas and desks, washrooms are not clean. You will find flies and ants around coffee machines. If you tell admin team about these, they will give you a very rude reply. 2. Laptops provided are of very low configuration and are faulty. 3. Very fewer fun activities. Management uses team outings budget for other things. Even after that, team members decide to go on an outing using their own resources, managers do not even sanction leave for that day giving some silly excuse. 3. The worst thing in this company is the attendance system. I have to mail at least twice a week to the HR for correcting my attendance. 4. Company has a 5-hour policy. If you do not maintain at least 7 hour then your manager will get mail from HR which is quite intimidating and aggressive. Actually, at least 8.5 hours is the unofficial time. Also, no benefits for overtime. Even if you complete the work on time and with full dedication, still you will be asked very rudely for completing the required hours in the office.
