    Pros

    This is one of the best software company to kill your career. 310+ employees have been fired since last 18 months. still you want to continue/join this company ?? People (who were working since 15 years with this company) even fired then what is stability of any employee ??? Just jump from this sinking ship before your career becomes ZERO(0).

    Cons

    Only policies are good to read on paper & presentation of world class drama of top management to grab new projects

    Advice to Management

    Why don't you start 'drama classes' ?? All top management people are really good dramatist to trap new customers.

    "Bad Company - Too Much Politics and Buttering"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Gateway TechnoLabs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1) Good company for freshers to get learning experience, considering if your Project Manager is knowledgeable and not People Manager only.
    2) Celebrate all festivals
    3) Good Infrastructure
    4) Get salary on-time

    Cons

    1) It's 21st century and still they work 6 days a week. Isn't it shocking?
    2) Very Stringent HR Policies.
    3) Fixed 1 hour for Break, you can do whatever you want in 1 hour including Lunch, Snacks, Tea. If you take more break then your salary will be deducted.
    4) Top Management treats employees as resources and not as Human. Suck maximum work that you can from resource, that's their mentality.
    5) No Work-Life Balance
    6) Few Manner-less People in Top Management feels as if they are CEO/MD of the company and always shout on people and being rude always. Show some respect at-least for your team, because of whom you are getting your salary on-time.
    7) If you are good at "Chaaplusi" or "Buttering" then you can climb up to top management also by doing nothing, and only shouting at people.
    8) Senior Management people never hesitate to put other people down, instead they feel proud of what they do.
    9) Favouritism / Partiality runs in their blood
    10) Appraisal? What is that? Management will be shocked if you ask for 15 or 20% hike. Their common reasons for not giving proper appraisals, which you can hear are same every year are: Company has not done growth this year, it's industry standard, your performance is good but company's overall performance also matters.
    11) They give good appraisals or promotion to non-deserving people only. But, deserving or star performers will be never appreciated or given good appraisals.
    12) Promotions are given based on the number of years you give to the company. Not on the basis of your talent/skills or performance. You can also become CEO/CTO if you serve more than 10 years, obviously using "Buttering" and not hard work.
    13) Dirty Politics everywhere.
    14) Some people can't even think of going out in market and looking for job. It's biggest sin for them. How can you even think of leaving this company?
    15) If they give you onsite opportunity, it means you will not get good appraisal this year. They compensate expense of onsite trip against your appraisal cost.
    16) Give more responsibilities to non-performing employee and save cost by not hiring new deserving candidate.
    17) Some people misuse HR policies by doing mis-punch or not doing in-out punch. Still, they get away with it if they have good relations with HR team.
    18) Management knows that who are non-performing employees in the company, still they are in company since more than a decade. Very Strange.
    19) Management knows everything that is going on in the company, but still they don't react to it.
    20) Biased towards Female Employees

    Advice to Management

    1) Learn to appreciate hardworking employees of your company
    2) Your employees also have family like you, so stop harassing them by asking to stay till late or be available anytime.
    3) Learn to respect each and every employee. Everyone has self-respect, if you are CEO or Director, that doesn't mean you get power to abuse anyone or make fun of anyone.
