    Pros

    They hired me and just fired once project got over. Performance was not the reason.

    Job Security, no good project management.

    Advice to Management

    Think before you take any decision and at least consult the person who will be affected by this decision. Hire PM who have knowledge on the particular field.

    Pros

    Best company to learn and strengthen your fundamentals, I worked here for around 4 years, and I got promoted for almost 3 times, for my hard work.

    CEO is really a nice and a humble man, GM is also a very nice lady, who considers humanity as top priority.

    Cons

    I don't see any thing as cons, One thing I can mention is, Join here, if you are really interested to work, If you just want 9 to 5 Job, I doubt you like this Company because, CEO of this company loves challenges ( hence I love him ), He picks up projects / contracts which are really challenging . I have even paired with him to debug some problem in the production of some project, He is technically sound guy

    Advice to Management

    Do what ever you are doing,

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice. Flexible work-life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless on how IT companies actually operate. They clearly lack leadership and vision. It's more of a family-based business model in which they operate, where only 2-3 people make decision who have no idea about the basics of management.

    They don’t even provide basic facilities for people. Internet is very slow. There are no proper systems and devices to work on. Employees are unhappy that they are not able to complete their projects on time due to lack of basic facilities. Managers are putting undue pressure on the team members without understanding the reason for delay. It is very evident that people are unhappy and highly demoralized.

    There is not even AC in the work area and people are just draining out in the scorching heat. Many complaints regarding this in the past just fell on deaf ears. They just don't want to spend, but what they are actually not realizing is that they are losing out more due to their approach. It's like penny wise, pound foolish.

    Management have demoralized and drained people to the extent that people are waiting for any option to get out.

    Most of the critical employees are leaving the company due to the obliviousness of the management. And they have not done a single thing to retain the remaining employees. They have no idea how bad of a position they are in.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn how companies operate. You can't just let everyone leave, then put pressure on few people, and then expect people to work for you happily without any motivation. If more people are leaving, then the problem is with the management and not with the people. It's high time management introspect about this. Invest on people and get connected with employees which is very important.

    I worked at CoStrategix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ignore the 5 star ratings (Mgmt trying to bump up the ratings) as also the 1 star ones (some left the company due to some bad incidents). I will attempt to put in a proper rating as per my exp here.
    Pros :
    1. Open Door Policy of Management - they are willing to listen.
    2. Flexible timings
    3. Work from home
    4. Plenty of projects on the mobile platform

    Cons

    1. Poor implementation of processes. They have well documented processes but hardly anyone implements it.
    2. Focus on fulfilling business requirement rather than engineering scalable stable applications. MVP seems to always become the ultimate final goal.
    3. Reactive approach rather than proactive. Lots of fire fighting during execution of most projects. Side effect of points 1 & 2.
    4. Too much multi tasking. Senior engineers act as Development managers
    + Technical leads + Dev Ops + Architects & sometimes even project managers. With so many hats, one cannot focus on improving any of the threads. This leads to absence of conventions, good practices in each of the given activity threads.
    5. Excessive focus on client satisfaction while ignoring employee needs & career growth. Due to point 4, Managers don't focus much on their team member's career growth.
    6. Quite a few maintenance projects where the scope of employee's knowledge growth is limited. Few projects have new technologies since people tend to stick to traditional technologies (PHP, MySQL, Zend Framework 2) rather than experiment on new ones.
    7. Meetings on improving the resource allocation, greater output, better project delivery take place but never on improving employee satisfaction or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Richard Branson states that the best way to have a great company is "Put your staff first, customers second, and shareholders third". With not much planned projects & less focus on engineering, the employee's work satisfaction & knowledge growth suffers a lot. To reduce the growing attrition rate, this needs to be addressed asap.
