    I worked at PK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I found PK as one of the best places to work where i was recognized for my performance. Growth was also significant for those who demonstrated the skill and ability. Work life balance was good as there was no restriction on fixed timings and more ever my manager was not micro managing me for which i was happy. Over all nice place to work. Never realized how fast the time flew while i was there.

    Cons

    Facilities like cafeteria and indoor games + Gym should be upscaled. Employee recognition programs should also be regularly organised.

    I have been working at PK full-time

    Pros

    No Bench concept here. They would assign to projects, else surprises by asking you to leave on same day but it happens less.

    Cons

    Organizations doesn't spend on employees benefits. Please remember they are your strength in hard times and reviews are added by HR guys to maintain rating. The senior management consider employees as slaves internally, don't give value and shows H1b hope to all innocents It lost its shine due to their ill treatment in few projects.

    Thanks for your review. Our compensation and benefits are at par/ahead of market standards and regulations, however we would definitely want to know if there has been any irregularity that is observed. Also PK is know as a "Launching Pad" for freshers, best place for freshers to learn and experience accelerated career path. We have been successfully recruiting freshers for the FY20 and we are happy that we have also commenced our onboarding processes with extra focus on their career growth. We hope to continue the same for FY21.

    I worked at PK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours - No micro management - Technical leadership - Latest technology stack

    Cons

    - Even after 15 years, they are struggling to bring - No of offshore accounts are very less, so you will get very limited opportunities to switch. Some times the growth seem to be stagnated - Some recent managers are screwing the company standards, even then management doesn't care - Some senior leaders who got promoted just by luck are so immature and they will try to bring down the employee morale through open criticism

    I have been working at PK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a mid sized company with strength less than six hundred in Hyd Campus and it's location in Divya Sree makes it to look like a premium IT services company. Few projects are having learning curve

    Cons

    Senior leadership in one of the major accounts is not eligible as colleagues talk that he humiliates, criticizes and very aggressively uses high pitch due to which colleagues are not having good vibes. There will be no events and festivities, all will remain only to decorations in the front lobby. There will be no benefits, will stay with ramp down scares.
