      Not a good company to join, Poor Management

      Pros

      Cultural activities time to time keeps you engaged. Salary on time.

      Cons

      A lot of work pressure is there from clients and upper management. Even if a person works for 10-12 hours a day, it doesn't count and management will always keep telling you that you are doing nothing impressive. Estimations disagreement from management, estimations should always be accurate and even if one is facing a problem, he should just stick to that. Extremely rude management Team doesn't provide you a good support intentionally because of their dependency or work pressure. People who have good relation with management will always be appreciated. No respect for their employees, they will humiliate you everyday in front of your team members by finding your mistakes.

      Big brands, great place with work flexibility

      Pros

      AKQA has one of the finest brands across the globe. They promote good work-life balance and the team feels like a family if you know how to blend in well. The India MD is a great person to hang out with. He challenges you, pushes you and drives you to do great work and most importantly he is always there to bounce off a bad day at work or a conflict with a fellow team member. He is supportive in his way, which many fail to understand. The team is good and supportive. A big shootout to the HR and Admin Department for making it a fun place.

      Cons

      AKQA India studio needs to diversify its tech stack to make technologists retain interests in projects. The technologists also need to understand and be patient that it's not easy to change the entire tech stack overnight. Its how the service-based industries work. The team sometimes needs to stretch before a release or a demo, but that's the nature of work we all are in. At times it's difficult to abide by the change in policies which is because they are growing.
