    Good for initial days of career but too time demanding yet no productivity

    Senior Software Development Engineer (Former Employee) Bangalore

    Pros1. Brilliant People
    2. Get to work on projects/product with large scale impact
    3. The brand name in industry is good

    Cons1. No work-life balance. People who are single and are workaholic would enjoy it in initial few years.
    2. You might end up having a boss who is far less qualified than you.
    3. Operations are on the head of developers so new product development is always hampered.
    4. Employees are more or less a disposable commodity for the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus on innovation driven approach instead of Dictator driven.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Learn at the cost of your life

    Software Development Engineer In Test I (Current Employee) Chennai

    ProsYou learn a lot within a very short time span. Every employee is considered as a leader. Smart co-workers, awesome technologies and much more

    ConsTerrible work life balance. There are lot of politics involved behind the scenes. You have to take care of your life otherwise the company just use yourself. Beware!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo think that employees have life too. You are losing smart & hard working employees at a faster rate and this is not good for the company.

    SDET is a development role, you expect us to write strong code and have absolute development skills. But managers are simply making SDET's to do manual QA, product releases for a very long time. Managers should understand this and should put right people in right roles.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
