      Pros

      1. Zero work pressure. 2. Good people. 3. For 0-5 years experience a good place to work with. After that leave as soon as possible because the work free and pressure-less environment can grow on you.

      Cons

      1. Laid back management, old people with old ideas, working for their pensions :) 2. Architects are not technical and technical directors don't want them to be technical. They want "yes men". 3. Product managers really don't come up with almost anything, they are happy with the sustenance of the products and attending client issue calls. That is not what product managers do! 4. Don't know why they hire program managers, they just sit in cafeteria, chat and go for long walks!!

      Former Employee, more than 5 years

      Good place to work, fair learning however very limited growth opportunities and conventional old-thought managers.

      Pros

      Work life balance. Good facilities like - cabs, outing activities. Family type culture. Freedom in work and research. Comparatively easy reach to higher management. Works in old but very core technologies.

      Cons

      Most managers are very old in the organization except very few most of them are old-though conventional managers. Lot of politics. Very less scope of innovations and new learning. No clear product road-maps: Although its a product based company however for most big customers it starts working like service based. Once you work here long, thought process becomes stiff and lazy and you find it very difficult yo find job outside.

      Pros

      good learning things. challenging tasks. you would got the thorough understanding of Cryptography,how data gets secured Very good projects that would boost skills. Flexi work timings. Good work life balance. cabs. lots of outing and parties.

      Cons

      Pathetic senior persons are. Most of the duffers would order you. Too much politics. people have forgotten there skills and just keep in doing politics all the time. Seniors would eat your hard work that you have done. Same kind of projects,they are trying to apply same thing in every project. So after some time your growth curve just stagnant. Some mangers are not doing anything whole days ,just a totally waste of the company.

      Pros

      Company is good for new and quick learner . Company benefit is good like Health Checkup ;Cab facilities;paid Lunch facilities;Adventurous Trip

      Cons

      SafeNet is good company but now this is correct time for Top Management to take some strong step against HR,Finance and Admin for SafeNet India. People sitting in Finance and admin must be fire with Immediate effect. If these people fired from this company, then top management can easily watch and feel growth graph of company from next day.

      Integration with Gemalto screwing up good policies

      Pros

      In old days there was lot of freedom to work , how to do it was not important what to do was important.

      Cons

      Now it is more how to do it rather than what to do it , there is no well defined road map , with leadership change lot of decisions are getting delayed . The infrastructure in Noida office is also under strees , there are not enough seats for people to sit in , they are made to sit in make shift tables. Also some recent changes in HR policies are very unfriendly - Ex-employee of SafeNet and Gemalto are not eligible for rehire - Relatives of current employees of SafeNet and Gemalto are not eligible for hiring - Employees working with current vendors of SafeNet and Gemalto are not eligible for hiring
