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

    Pros

    1.Snacks 2.Office infrastructure There are no more pros.

    Cons

    First of all I would say that the no company can have the rating difference like from 2.3 to 4.1 within few days.So you can guess what happens. The company is forcing it's employer to rate at the glassdoor and the HR will tell you what to write. Now coming to the cons* ::-- 1. Salary is not in time.You don't know when your salary will be credited. 2.You have to forget about the bonus even it is getting deducted from your salary.If you are lucky then you can get in every 2 years. 3.Management is always monitoring you.I mean if you are searching for jobs. 4.Salary increment you can get if and only if you can be a bootlicker. 5.There is no HR in this company.I mean there is HR executive designated person.But you have any problem if you have to ask the VP because she is only person to manage and approve of anything.Hr is here on behalf of her to keep eye on the employees. Like if you are going to play TT then the HR will simply write in chat to VP that you are playing TT and will add that you don't have any work that's why you are playing.The next you will know what happen.. 6.You will not have any personal life.Because they will call you anytime even at 2 or 3 P.M. 7.If you are late at work you will not any facility like food or transport.But they will force you to work late. 8.Leave policy is there.But you can't take it as it will not get approved. 9.Recently they have sacked many people.So no job guarantee. 10.Many seniors have left.In every month minimum 2 or 3 employees are resigning. 11.And most importantly even if you left the company you will not get the rest of the money.I have one friend who left one year ago,still didn't get the pending salary. 12.Simply the company doesn't have money to pay their employees. 13.In this company everyone seems so knowledgeable specially the management.So you know what happens if someone from management lectures you about the any technologies which is learned by doing some google typing rather practical knowledge. 14. So always mental pressure will be there.And after coming to the company you will know that you know nothing,you didn't learn anything from your career.The management will teach you about technology or whatever. 15,The company is not getting any employees to hire so they are creating fake reviews/ If you don't believe me then ask any of your friend who is working at WS.

    Pros

    The culture is very relaxed and easy-going. Agilent offers great options to balance your work and home life and the people here have been nothing but great to work with.

    Cons

    Being a large company, it is hard sometimes to juggle resources that are spread out all over the world. The politics surrounding a large corporation like this can make life difficult at times but that would be true of almost any large organization in the IT industry.

    Pros

    Better pay packages compared to Kolkata and within its peers

    Cons

    Sweatshop, No respect for employees, Don't believe in investing in employees, No HR policies, Family business - CEO and his family have a strong hold over day-to-day operations and decisions are taken as per the mood swings of these members. Unethical management - everything from headcount, international office locations etc is fake. They even force their employees to write favorable reviews on glassdoor and social sites.

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

    Pros

    - Opportunities are provided if you ask for. - Good scope of learning. (preferably for freshers or juniors)

    Cons

    - Worst management. One person is assigned in too many projects, as a result they cannot focus on their work, so output is bad, therefore worst management. - Excessive work pressure Resource allocation is very poor. One person will responsible for 5 projects. - No Social Life Employess of WS cannot have a social life. You work for 9 hours. As soon as you'll reach home, you'll get a call from support to work from home. OR You are on leave and want to spend time with family/ You applied leave, you went on vacation with family... again you'll get a call from support to work as there is no other resource. - Worst pay. No increment If you are joining WS now, don't expect a good package. Often salary disbursement is late. Initially we worked 5 days a week. One fine morning CEO decided to work on alternate Saturdays. So, decrement in Salary. No increment. - Rude Behavior One person is responsible for multiple projects. After so much of hard work, there is no gesture of appreciation. Rather, I guess, VP and CEO enjoys demotivating and respecting their employees. -
