    I worked at Equal Experts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lot of opportunities to learn new technologies. Provides flexibility to choose technologies. All the people are easily accessible and share a lot with the new members. Mentoring is there but not formal. Flexible work hours and work from home. EE UK network is great and lot of expertise.

    Cons

    Company and projects moving away from the values they preach and publish. People are forced to ignore quality for timelines agreed without discussion with the teams. India operations merely looking to get billable people instead of quality. HR policies are at whim's of few people and change overnight. Appraisals are delayed just a way of retention. Recent focus of local clients is leading to same environment as... any other Indian service companies. No real onsite opportunities. Management has created there own ivory tower and is not aware of ground level reality. Just the name is Equal Expert but employees are not treated equally.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of asking feedback for people when they leave, better listen to them when they are in the organisation. Make people feel appreciated . Transparency is missing as compared to EE UK. People are just given responsibilities but authority is missing. Don't lower the recruitment quality bar it has already started hitting the overall quality.

    I have been working at Equal Experts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It is an agile delivery and consulting company with pragmatic approach to software delivery. There are very few companies in Pune which promote working with good technical practices at the same time provide support and motivation to learn new technologies. Equal Experts in one them. Without traditional managerial hierarchy, this feels like a community of like minded people rather that a corporate consultancy.... I have been provided with lots of opportunities to follow my passion. Company has supported me in learning new skills at various stages. Because of their working model of short terms projects, you get to work on various domains and technologies. Focus is always on providing more value to customers. You feel to be doing the right thing by helping client delivery more value their customers. Equal Experts consistently share their knowledge with community by having sessions in their meetup group called Experttalks.

    Cons

    Still trying to mature as a company. Has not been able to cope with the size of more than 60-70 people well. Failed to evolve recruitment processes over time. Standards of the people coming inside company has gone down with growing demands of the projects. Virtually no HR management. It can be both good and bad. I think it leads to not having a proper career progression path. Which causes people to leave... organization after few years as they feel lost and does not get clear picture about their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in grooming new people. Mentor lateral hires to help them understand cultural values. Stop running behind every new project and play to your strengths Have a good mix of development and consulting capabilities. Have a meaningful career framework in place. Focus on retaining talent and reducing attrition.
