    Pros

    I have worked at many companies and these are pros compared to my past experiences: 1> Flexible timings - This is a great thing especially in Bangalore 2> Latest tech - Lots of opportunities to learn and grow as most of the projects are on latest technologies. You can learn a lot here. 3> HR is very friendly and approachable for everything. 4> Management is very talented and technically very strong 5> Good salary and Medical insurance 6> Work life balance is actually a reality here 7> Most important - Opportunities for learning and growth are available - You have to be a go getter and take them for your personal and professional growth. lots of chances to be proactive and contribute at an individual and team level.

    Cons

    Need more employee engagement activities.

    Pros

    Note - Just Ignore 5 star positive reviews, most of them are recommended/written by HR team. About CoStrategix Technologies (Bangalore office): - Client First, Process Second, Infrastructure Third.....Employee Last. - Learn, Work & Leave. No Professional Growth bcoz It's runs like a FBB (Family Based Business). - Strongly recommends for freshers & young professionals(1 to 2 years); Who are keen to learn and grow. - Doesn't recommends for the professionals from MNC's and no scope for Testers & Mobile developers. - No predefined process. Process can change according to the Project conditions. - New Policies (like coding Structures, OOPS concepts, Unit testing) are roll-out every quarter but hardly followed in client projects. - Notice Period is now 3 months (recently changed from 2 to 3 months & No buyout option also). THINK Twice before joining CoStrategix. - Once upon a time, CoStrategix was very well known for PHP technologies but now no PHP projects. Props:: 1. Projects are good & challenging to learn. 2. Open culture environment. Everyone in the hierarchy can be easily approachable. 3. Flexible timings but mandatory 9 hours. 4. Opportunities to learn & work on multiple technologies. 5. Food & cab is provided in late working hours. 6. Work from home policy. 7. Employee Insurance is provided. 8. Metro is accessible.

    Cons

    Cons:: 1. Very poor in project management, resource planning, project estimatation. (Agile is not followed always) 2. Developers are treated as actual resources like a thing without soul & mind. 3. Most of the managers doesn't knew anything about SDLC. How to Plan & execute the Project, Architecture, Solution's, Estimation, Deployment strategy, Quality strategy, Team management? etc., they simple follows the general manager instructions & pass on the same to team members & strictly follows calendar dates from delivery team. Just like academic way of project execution. 4. Unfriendly HR team - Most worst HR policies, They can change the policies anytime without any intimation - just by sending a mail in working hours mentioning it as per IT standards. (Idea behind is to hold people from leaving the company) 5. HR will hire for some technology and ask to work in other technologies. 6. Appraisal are very less. No matter how much work you do?? Hike amount is fixed for all. 7. No promotions - There is no such policy in CoStrategix. If they feel, they will promote else No Promotion, Performance is totally ignored. 8. Attrition rate is very high (especially developers are leaving). Mobile teams got almost vanished. 9. No Code Reviews, No work life balance, No compensation is given when you work on projects in weekends. 10. Appraisal/Reviews are always delayed by one month every time. 11. No Job Security - Employee can be FIRED anytime if under-performed. 12. No Employee Independence - Managers/HR is always forcing employees to present tech talk, write tech blogs, attend sessions/events by taking the attendance by HR team member irrespective of project conditions or interest or relevance. 13. PRACTICES - Employees are set with high expectations without providing training/ proper guidance/road-map plan/resources to practice team members. - Again ignoring the project constraints & also employee should take out his/her personal time to do all this kind of work.

    I have been working at CoStrategix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Read many posts about costrategix. Would like to give the right experience for you guys to decide upon. If you are looking for an environment, where you would like to get ample time to chill out, do a work of 9 to 5, jazzy work location, then please don't read further. If you are looking for technology, learning, growth, money, flexible work life balance then checkout my key points. Key Points: 1. A company who thinks of the latest trend and always determined to be ahead in technology and make sure to bring in that trend to company. 2. Gives value to innovation. It could be from you OR with respect to company. 3. Its a company with technology agnostic people. You can move any employee to any technology and they work with ease. You will get enough opportunity to show your calibre. 4. Adopts to changes quickly, it can be with the technology, it could with sales, it could even be with website. 5. Helps employee achieve new learnings in the name of "practice", there by helps you and the company grow in parallel. What's practice ?, you will come to know when you are IN. 6. Holds good experienced management. And with their superior skill set, helps achieve to be ahead of technology with a good success rate and keep the success rate growing year by year.

    Cons

    1. Not really much, but it depends on your need. As told, if your interests are more in non-technical aspects. Then, this is not the right opt. 2. Focused more in technical aspects, work, process. Which is good. But need some alternatives for leisure. 3. Need to have more breakouts from routine.
