    Cons

    In my small career of two and half years I have left office at 6 a.m. and have left office at 6 p.m. as well. These are all quirks of a software engineers life.

    Advice to Management

    Let's move towards open source stack as well

    Pros

    1. If you crave for working on live projects from the early stage of your career, this is the perfect organization for you. You will get a lot of exposure from the very initial days of your working. 2. Lot of latest technologies to choose and work. 3. The company encourages a lot of certifications, courses, and continuous learning. As a result, your technical skills will never expire and you will have something... new to learn always:) 4. Lately, there has been an increase in indoor game competitions and cultural events which is a good direction is thinking about employee's recreational activities. 5. Direct visibility at a senior management level 6. You will get appraisal twice a year. The focus is always on appraising the work and setting improvement goals along with whatever incentives you will get with the appraisal. 7. Biggest of all, very friendly environment. Everyone here is very helpful and full of strong technical skills.

    Cons

    Sometimes, it is advised to put the focus on multiple additional activities which result in less focus on the actual project work. This is rare and can be sorted out :)

    I have been working at MAQ Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities. As an individual you get to work on different set of technologies and get your hands dirty. High visibility if you are performing well and you get instant appreciation for the work. Nice company infrastructure and cool work environment. Most of the work is around BI and reporting, good to start company if you are interested in backend set of projects. Best part is the people... you work with, very knowledgeable and technically sound. You get end to end visibility of project and how your work item gets integrated into solution, this helps in writing better code. Lot of responsibility and accountability for the work items assigned which helps to define ownership mentally. Lots of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Most of technologies used are Microsoft specific. Lack of specialization due to rigid deadline, developer has to create freestyle short term solution without proper architecture or future planning.

    Advice to Management

    Have employee friendly policies. Need to think on how can you can bring full time employees with quality experience and not hire contract based interns from college for short term. Provide leave compensation and do not make Saturday working day when some holiday falls in the weekdays.

    Pros

    You would work here with quick learners and extremely talented teams. The company provides immense level of growth opportunities (project delivery, customer facing roles, recruitment, training etc.) and sense of responsibility to beginners (initial 2-3 years). You would learn a lot of new technologies and most of all, you would how to learn anything by yourself and figure out solutions to any kind of complex... solutions. We believe in making it happen, and yes, we always do.

    Cons

    Company lacks strong marketing and sales team. It feels the pride in having 90% repeat customers but pays little attention to increasing the customer base and not stick with just one client company. Organization lacks strong and focused management, they setup multiple priorities and initiatives every quarter but should really focus on specializing few key areas rather than running after learning every new upgrade... or technology that Microsoft releases. The standard of projects is degrading, repetitive work and very projects have scope of practical innovation with the timelines (usually 6-8 weeks) they come with. Employees find it difficult to have work-life integration because organization pays little attention to the "life" part and is totally biased towards "work".

    Advice to Management

    1. You need a strong sales and marketing strategy because you are under selling yourselves. Focus on penetrating clients other than Microsoft, there are better technologies available in market and at lower cost and faster pace, increasing your customer footprint is equally important. 2. Treat employees as humans. The company's top management lacks emotional touch and sense of respecting employees. Don't treat... employees as slaves and realize that they are your biggest assets. 3. Bring in the fun quotient to the company. Holidays and festivals matter and clients do understand that if you take a little effort to improve your customer relationships. Learn to say NO when needed. 4. Pay your employees what they deserve. When you expect them to work in afternoon and night shifts, reimburse full travel amounts or provide safe drop service. Understand that the employees would end up spending more than double the cost when they agree to work at unconventional hours when public transport isn't available.
