    A learning and rewarding experience, learnt a lot, great workplace

    Quality Engineer (Former Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsA great workplace with colleagues whom you'll have a good relationship with. Good ingrained systems and processes with plenty of room for your own contributions, exposure to many areas of a manufacturing business

    Senior Software Engineer ( Java/J2EE)

    Software Developer (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsThe team had highly talented and enthusiastic senior and junior developer but it was gained through false promises. Believe none of the developers who were recruited for my project is in the company now. We resigned from the company with in a year.

    ConsManagement is too worse .
    No onsite opportunity .
    Too much of politics at higher management .
    Every 4 months ,there is an Organizational change and the teams keep dispersing and total hierarchy and your reporting changes . And finally none of the projects takes life and looses scope for the employees and developers in the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a proper scope and be frank and true during the interview process. Because they promise something in the interview , but the actual work and projects are not as they explain to us . For you may be we are just resources, but for us its our career.

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