I worked at Calypso Technology full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
depending on what location and what area you are working: Good amount of freedom and autonomy
Plenty of opportunity to "get involved"
great place to learn
For the most part...everybody is very niceCons
CEO gets involved in everything...including reviews of the most junior people
CEO believes hearsay and rumors over actual facts
CEO thinks everybody around him is a moron
CEO speaks to people like they are children
CEO is actually ruining his own company by his misguided policies and knee jerk decisionsAdvice to ManagementAdvice
where do I begin? There is no management. Calypso would be better off as a smaller company with more highly paid, but less employees.
Calypso has no leverage over their employees because they are not paid well. There is no incentive to perform whatsoever. eventually everyone just leaves.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO

second round was again telephonic and it was more a discussion on market practices, role requirements, relocation hassles, educational background and current job profile.
HR round was also quick and the negotiations were quick and to the point. the whole process took less than a month to close.
