    Sometimes miscommunication happens. Otherwise nothing much to talk about. it is almost in every workplace. Management is flexible enough to address if you take it with them. (Disclaimer: if you prove you are good)

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

    Pros

    "Some" good people, some products.

    Cons

    Worst company to work with in Bangalore. Most ppl leave within first year of joining. 1. Clueless management they don't know how to run a software firm. Will treat you like a human slave and no respect for employee. 2. Top talent is leaving this sinking ship as there is no future. 3. Using agile methodology at cost of product quality and your personal life. 4. Forcing you to write fake review for their fake #LifeAtSandvine campaign. 5. Micro management at every level no freedom to innovate or learn. 6. If you are working with Sweden team they will make sure your work get blocked forever. Too much politics and job insecurity. 7. HR is useless even if you complain about issues they dont have any power or willingness to help. Don't join this company based on false reviews by HR check 1 or 2 start reviews for real information. Think twice even if this is your only option.

    Pros

    Technical work is good and some good architects are also present.

    Cons

    HR and Finance services team don't communicate, they are not proactive to help employees. Leaders in this domains are more then 8+ years, they have built groups and play politics. And to this some managers are also joining hands If you are not self-managed guy you will feel ditched If you have tendency to ask questions in open meetings then you will be specially targeted, and even office boys are influenced by these leaders and you see at times bad response from office support staff also.

    I worked at Sandvine full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * A few experienced, knowledgeable people who you can learn from. * Smaller teams and hence greater responsibilities. Works when you start off your career here.

    Cons

    * Terrible management who don't pay heed to employee's woes. * Manager (at least one) has a few favorites and only they get any help they need or the visibility they may want. It astonishes anyone as to how this is done in broad day light (In some cases, even expensive gifts are circulated in office hours to the favorites.). It's better to leave than point these out because HR turns a blind eye to any negative feedback. *Not at all recommended for women employees. Manager (at least one )makes sexist remarks openly and expects everyone to be ok with it. * Only slogging works here. Smart work is never appreciated. If you spend all your weekends here, you might get into the manager's good books. *Credit is never given to the one truly deserving it. Rather than appreciating the deserved ones, ridiculous excuses are given during appraisal. *Need to work on better technologies than out dated ones.
