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

    Pros

    You will get to learn all the engineering aspects and aquire all the skills required to work for a company. You will get the opportunity to work on multiple projects individually as well as in a self managed team. Ceo is very humble and not at all rude. Work colleagues are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not that good.

    I have been working at headstrait full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly and experienced

    Cons

    0 work life balance. Plus no compensations even after stating them in the contract. Fake promises about projects while there is only one working project. 0 respect for employees from ceo. CEO is rude, does not understand development and thinks its childs play. All other negative review pretty much sums up about management and the CEO.

    I have been working at headstrait full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1.) You will get to learn a lot of new technologies the right way. 2.) Apart from technologies the entire flow from from design to development and lot of technical stuffs like ci/cd etc was taught. The reason for 'was' is in the cons. 3.)You will have that attitude of getting things done and will be technically agnostic.

    Cons

    1.)Very initial stages of the startup and its not a good idea to risk your career. The training was excellent but they don't do that anymore as the business model has been changed. So I won't suggest joining. 2.) Changed the business model from training and sending to clients from doing their own project and products midway. 3)Continuously went downsizing the employees and eventually, we are left with 7 people from 25. 4) Has just one client as of now and minimal cash flow resulting in constant downsizing. 5) No proper management, no hierarchy, just one boss to rule them all. 6)CEO (boss) trusts only his 'trainers' and has super trust issues with the rest of the employees. 7)Constant disagreements on what was approved by the CEO earlier. You will design wireframes get it approved start development then he will be like 'I didn't approve this'. 8.)The training and deploy to client-side business model has been changed and there is just one client and the future looks hazy as of now. 9.)No work life balance whatsover.

    I have been working at headstrait full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employees are very friendly and very helpful. Everyone is open to learn new things and help others catch up to speed. The work environment without the boss being around is very nice.

    Cons

    The CEO is a very arrogant and stubborn person who treats his employees like personal servants. Orders the employees to get things done which are unrealistic without understanding the technicalities in an hour. Treats employees very poorly and never considers the late hours you give to the organisation. Has no respect for other people's time, personal work, opinions and thoughts. Thinks the employees are going to steal office tea mugs and laptop charging cabels. Will act very sweet for few months and promise you incentives and opportunities but will show true colours shortly. Will call your work waste. The CEO only trusts one of the senior member and treats every one else poorly.

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

    Pros

    The only pros I see is you get exposure to various technologies, also all employees are very helpful.

    Cons

    1. At first zero work-life balance. 2. The CEO is very arrogant, he thinks by paying you he has owned you. Sometimes he is very rude with their employees. 3. NO JOB GUARANTEE - I REPEAT NO JOB GUARANTEE, it's all up to the CEO if he thinks you are not fit for the program then he will give you warning and kick you out of the company too. 4. You are expected to be on time to office, but if you leave on time that gives CEO heart attack. 5. Requesting for a leave makes CEO upset, as he believes " In Japan people are working 12-12 hours and 6 days". 6. No senior/experienced staff expect of the CEO(no practical knowledge only theory), all the employees have less than a year experience. 7. No cultural activity celebrated as there is no HR, all we have is CEO in our life.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I joined Headstrait on June 2019. After clearing the aptitude, it's all on you how lucky you are to get into Headstrait. Most of the things I didn't learn in engineering were taught to me by Headstrait. This company isn't like the other MNC's which give you factory work. It is the best designation a Computer Engineer can get that is Master Developer (Full-Stack Developer). It deals with a rigorous training where you are been trained on many softwares and you learn what is actually required. Teaching Front-end, Middletier, Back-end, Code Inspection, Data Science, Databases, Source File Configurations, Lean/Agile, UI/UX, Secure Coding Practices, DevOps is impossible in 4-6 months but this company has managed to make each and every employee clear about these concepts. So don't miss the opportunity and grab it.

    Cons

    There are no cons working with Headstrait. Any Cons written previously are from employees who weren't clear about the concept of the company. It is your con if you are not present mentally during the TenX Training Program.
