- You sign a 2 year bond with penalty ranging up to several lakhs (seriously) for breaking it. This means you're at their mercy for this period and they can deny you raises, overwork you, etc and you can't get away.
- It is a family company with a large number of their relatives in various roles, creating an extreme amount of preferential treatment.

- You are not even allowed a phone inside, effectively cutting you off from friends and family 5 days a week (assuming they fail to coerce you to come on weekends). If you are family, you are allowed to carry your phone though (did I mention preferential treatment?)

- The systems are not connected to internet (they claim it's for security). But what that means for you is that your learning is significantly hampered and simple tasks can take hours. Good luck standing out in an interview for your next job since you learnt so little in your last.

- Ever heard of sandwich leave? Google it - trust me, it's worth it.

- The office is in an industrial area with no decent place to eat nearby. You can't order food (no phone, remember?) so your best bet is to suck it up to a family member who will order for you.

- The "you serve the Indian Army" statement they keep throwing around is a lie. Sales are often determined by contacts and backhanded deals, and not the merits of the product itself. Corruption is rampant.

- They can't get a stable head of software . Besides, the company suffers from massive attrition in software (since most people leave after 2 year bond). Compounded with the above point, most software projects involve

1) treating employees_Use and through type no value to employees
2) Dont know when you will be removed from job

3) should say yes for people whom management supports ,thou they give wrong instructions

4) People who does not know work start giving instructions with half knowledge (non technical ,inefficient people handle efficient people and expect them to work like slaves)

5) Good company ,good management, but managed/guided by management trusted people who are non technical ,inefficient people handle efficient people and expect them to work like slaves,and give wrong information regarding reality to management.
Cons
non technical, inefficient people handle efficient people and expect them to work like slaves, and give wrong information regarding reality to management.

Zen is a great place to learn a lot. We can get exposure to end to end product development cycle, which is not possible elsewhere. We get to work on lots of new challenges and technologies. But work culture and management is bad. They work in old style even now, less transparency. Hikes are also bad.
Pros
Challenging work, lots of learning
Cons
Bad work environment, less pay

Management allows employees to do the things on their own and gives full freedom. They are very cooperate and result oriented.
We can learn continually as new projects carries always.

Amazing domain on defense training, gave me great opportunity to learn and explore. Though a small company, the strong management team gives good opportunity to recognize talents and place them rightly.
