    Go for brand name and nice benefits ! ! !

    Associate Software Engineer (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    Pros1. Flexible working hours.
    2. Learning Opportunities.
    3. Brand value.
    4. Attractive benefits.
    5. Happening parties and team lunch.
    6. Interactive events.

    Cons1. Long working hours if the project requires(Most of the projects will require this)
    Highly unethical point : Your managers will ask you to forget your personal life and stay in office for at least 12 hours a day. Even working on Saturdays and Sundays. And when asked for extra compensation, they will deny for it directly. The political answer they will give is: "Officially have to provide you either Compensatory off/ Monitory Compensation to you. Money we won't give, and compensatory off you can take on your own, but we won't approve that".
    2. For ASE, you don't have any choice, you are their puppet, they can make you perform anywhere and anytime. You will not have either your location preference or technology preference.
    3. Communication with your higher peers is really difficult. They don't put efforts to connect with anyone.
    4. None of the policy change is beneficial for the employees. All changes are being made to make work-life balance more difficult. Thereby making the rate of employee satisfaction lower.
    5. Company is taking more employees than it can accommodate. A place that is made for only two employees to sit, is used by three now. (Weird but true !).

    Advice to Senior Management1. At least have a discussion with your employees, about what they actually want. And try to make out a practical solution.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
