    Pros

    Considering you get into a good project, the scope of learning is tremendous. Mentors are helpful. Complete ownership of your work, considering you prove yourself that you are capable of handling it. Heaven for freshers.

    Cons

    Beware of HR politics. Be ignorant of team politics and you will do wonders. Work work and work and you will see yourself rising above all above.

    Looks like you were assigned on some data science project that required working on excel. While we acknowledge your discontentment, we’re sure that the assignment enhanced your learning at the early stages of your career.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Calsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Nice parking 2. Location of Company is very easy to reach. There is no traffic near the company area. 3. Good Canteen. Lunch and Dinner are subsided by company. 4. In most of the projects work-life balance is good. 5. Exit procedure is well managed. We are not required to meet anyone in person for getting his/her signature.

    Cons

    1. Manipulation in Glassdoor reviews. If you observe carefully, you will find time based few back to back positive reviews (with small description) to balance out negative reviews. 2. Extreme favorism is in Calsoft. If you observe carefully, awards & promotions are given mostly to people who are favorites of a director/Manager. You need to attend only 2 award ceremonies to realise this. 3. Less chances of getting project. You may have to spend many months on bench. 4. Poor WFH policy. It is almost impossible to get work from home. 5. Outdated technology stack. 6. Very short time projects. Most of the projects are of timeline of 2 months. 7. Bad Performance Appraisal. If your package is on higher side, they will give you 0% hike. 8. Completely biased HR policies. The HR policies are different for people above manager designation and people at/below manager designation.
