    Pros

    1. Optirisk specializes in mathematical optimization and prescriptive analytics. People with a good background in optimization will be able to thrive here.
    2. There is a certain amount of flexibility on what you want to specialize in. Good for selecting a skill set an developing it.
    3. Gives a chance to develop your entrepreneurial skills if you are wiling to work on it. Working here as a manager is like running a company.
    4. if you like a politics free, no-nonsense work environment, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    1. Need to be good at optimization to make a difference here.

    Former Employee - Business Analyst - Optimization in Chennai
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    1) An experience to work in a startup, but it is more of a project of CEO Padmakumar Bala who knows zero about Optimization and the company is in the business of providing optimization software to the industry.

    2) The company location is near a very nice beach.

    Cons

    1) Padmakumar Bala know zero about optimization, and the company claims to be an optimization problem solver for the industry.

    2) Puts a lot of emphasis on hiring people with good UI, Website and poster designing skills instead of improving its core competency, i.e., providing optimization modeling of problems and subsequent software.

    3) The company operates out of a home, without Air conditioner in the Chennai heat.

    4) The company stays in poor financial health all the time. The only secure jobs are for people who are willing to work for <10k a month.

    Advice to Management

    Replace Padmakumar Bala with someone competent in the Optimization modeling, or change business objective of company to making websites, UI and posters.
