    Nice company but need to improve

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsGood facilities
    Treat the employee well and offer good perks

    ConsLearning curve in terms of new technologies is very little
    Work-life balance is poor

    Advice to Senior ManagementMust concentrate more on the employee by giving training etc.
    Also should be much more flexible with internal team movement. And international team movement should be relaxed. This would help employee retention.

    Learnt what not to learn at eBay

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Chennai

    ProsExcellent office with all amenities. Really nice place to work.

    ConsRestricted technology and a crappy web development framework (V4)
    No Adoption of open source (at least when I was there, dont know how it is now).
    Work here few years, you are locked, very hard (not impossible) to stay in touch with the outside world.
    Seriously Work life Imbalance

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring consultants. Please strip off that model.

    Good and Fun... But extremely laid back atmosphere with sudden heavy-work spurts may not be good for some people.

    Software Developer (Former Employee) Chennai

    ProsHelping People, Nice Pay, Nice Culture

    ConsIt took 2 months for me to get my computer at work. I virtually lost interest in working... Also, no proper orientation programme - makes life a bit difficult at first.

    Older technologies to work with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some more risks or be behind

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
