    Senior software engineer @ Capital IQ Hyderabad: This can be a good first job

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsThe work culture is more like a young startup. One has the independence to propose his solutions and implement them after taking feedback. Such Entrepreneurial traits are strongly valued and encouraged.

    ConsWithin 1-2 years, one will get a hang of the nature of work and it becomes easy to solve. After 1-2 years, it is difficult to get any challenging work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHands on managers who can jump into work will offer much help to employees compared to those who only know projects at theoretical level. I happened to work with a mix of both and the former ones offered more help in shaping me.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Monotonous and Stagnant!

    Senior Research Associate (Former Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsThere are good chances to grow in the company up to 2-3 levels, from entry level to a Senior level.
    The management was accommodating.
    Good work life balance.
    Target based role, every thing will be fine as long as you are able to achieve your monthly targets... quantitatively and qualitatively ..

    ConsPost the Senior Associate or Analyst level, it is very very tough to get promoted or to move out from this company to any other.

    It would take about 3-6 years till you can get another promotion.

    The experience from this place is pretty much useless, it is close to impossible to move to another company, unless you have some additional certifications (such as CA, CFA, etc).

    There is a certain amount of preference for male employees, when it comes to special projects.

    You need to be in the good books of the management to get promotions and leaves accepted, else things could become awful!

    Constant change in policies.

    Very conservative environment!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease assign projects to all members of the team. Do not selectively assign it to a special group of people.
    There should be more motivational factors

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
