    This would almost be the last company you might join, you can not change after

    Senior Software QA Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsSalary paid on 25th of every month

    Cons1. Worst HR/Finance Dept, No help can be expected. Its like you are talking to Government employees if you go to them.
    2. No work life balance
    3. Every achievement of yours will have more negative comments than positives. you would be made to feel its not achievement but a home-excersise
    4. Full of politics with players inter dependent on each others, so no way a change can be expected.
    5. This review specific to Mac Linux Team
    6. Title is to tell you that, you would become dumb and can never be able to change job.
    7. More problems you have out side, more they would utilise opportunity to get extra work from you.

    Advice to Senior Managementtake my voice survey results seriously

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    You have to struggle to get work with your skills

    Software QA Engineer (Former Employee) Bangalore

    Pros1. Work-life balance.
    2. good payer
    3. security domain.

    ConsBased on experience in my team:

    1. legacy management
    2. fewer hikes
    3. waste money on less usable things, hence, important things are ignored.
    4. Lot of dependency on managers.
    5. Managers focused to satisfy higher management and to release product, No matter how is quality.
    6. less focused on innovation
    7. late adapter of new technologies and processes.
    8. they hire you with good skills and will give you work which may not match to your skills.
    9. congested space, small cafeteria. meeting rooms occupied by contract employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to lesser intervention of direct managers, when engineers want to do good jobs themselves.
