Overall good

Based on project all learning will be there. But over here as it's service based company you will get lot of options in terms of switching between the projects based on your manager.

Productive and Fun Activities at work

Everyone feels included. The managers and colleagues make sure that you are present and prepared with all kinds of tasks. They’re helpful and makes sure that tasks are assigned equally among us.

Great place to work

Everything depends on client project.Management needs to think about there employees work-life balance .Payscal is less as compared to market standard.Kolkata location is worst for me lots of politics. Manager only looks for those who have a good bonding with employees not interms of working standard.

Company was good. But post management change the policies are changed which are not employee friendly e.g. 10 hrs of login per day. Hike is less. Too much politics

Productive and knowledge gaining

I joined here in June 2019. And started my first project in Oct 2019. At starting phase it was a little difficult to go with the flow, but the Senior colleagues are really helpful. They helped a lot in understanding the working measures. First few months though there were not a lot of work still being a novice time management was a challenge for me. But slowly and steadily everything got sorted out. And now after 3 years I am in a comfortable zone according to my work pressure. Only a little concern is that salary is 40-50% lower what I personally feel. But the work life balance is quite good and a good organisation to gain knowledge.
