How are the career development opportunities at headstrait?

Pros

I joined Headstrait on June 2019. After clearing the aptitude, it's all on you how lucky you are to get into Headstrait. Most of the things I didn't learn in engineering were taught to me by Headstrait. This company isn't like the other MNC's which give you factory work. It is the best designation a Computer Engineer can get that is Master Developer (Full-Stack Developer). It deals with a rigorous training where you are been trained on many softwares and you learn what is actually required. Teaching Front-end, Middletier, Back-end, Code Inspection, Data Science, Databases, Source File Configurations, Lean/Agile, UI/UX, Secure Coding Practices, DevOps is impossible in 4-6 months but this company has managed to make each and every employee clear about these concepts. So don't miss the opportunity and grab it.

Cons

There are no cons working with Headstrait. Any Cons written previously are from employees who weren't clear about the concept of the company. It is your con if you are not present mentally during the TenX Training Program.

Advice to Management

The CEO of Headstrait is very smart and is very determined on what needs to be done. He has knowledge of every aspect/ problems you might face during the apprenticeship. The trainers are students, who are masters in their particular fields. It's a student-driven company as learning from students is the core of strengthening any company.

So don't miss the opportunity and grab it.

What is the feeling of job security at headstrait?

Pros

The training is rigorous will snatch all the peace you have in life. Be prepare to face hell Forget Holidays as well

Cons

They sign a contract but the contract has no value as such. It TOTALLY depends upon the CEO and how he wants to play with the terms of contract. Job security is a big NO. They fire you without any assessment and just for the reason that they "FEEL" you won't be able to complete the bootcamp. They hire fresh graduates and waste their time (mine approx 6 months) by selecting them. During that time you can get much better company with a better work life balance. No facilities what so ever. I suggest you to not get greedy over the package offering and secure a descent job in any other company.

Advice to Management

If a candidate has passed the initial placement test (which is aptitude+GD+technical round+MR Round) and have managed to crack the interview what makes you "feel" the person won't be able to complete the bootcamp. If that is the case then either do your placement more strict or don't hire at all.

I suggest you to not get greedy over the package offering and secure a descent job in any other company.

How is management perceived at headstrait?

Pros

1.) You will get to learn a lot of new technologies the right way. 2.) Apart from technologies the entire flow from from design to development and lot of technical stuffs like ci/cd etc was taught. The reason for 'was' is in the cons. 3.)You will have that attitude of getting things done and will be technically agnostic.

Cons

1.)Very initial stages of the startup and its not a good idea to risk your career. The training was excellent but they don't do that anymore as the business model has been changed. So I won't suggest joining. 2.) Changed the business model from training and sending to clients from doing their own project and products midway. 3)Continuously went downsizing the employees and eventually, we are left with 7 people from 25. 4) Has just one client as of now and minimal cash flow resulting in constant downsizing. 5) No proper management, no hierarchy, just one boss to rule them all. 6)CEO (boss) trusts only his 'trainers' and has super trust issues with the rest of the employees. 7)Constant disagreements on what was approved by the CEO earlier. You will design wireframes get it approved start development then he will be like 'I didn't approve this'. 8.)The training and deploy to client-side business model has been changed and there is just one client and the future looks hazy as of now. 9.)No work life balance whatsover.

Advice to Management

Have a fix business model and plan things accordingly an

5) No proper management, no hierarchy, just one boss to rule them all.
