Very Bad work Culture and High Level Politics
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bangalore, KA12 September 2014
Very bad experience from the day of joining. High level politics and worst work culture, Photon Infotech doesn't have corporate culture but fish market level. HR people are helpless, no use if you raise any concern.

No good Project, All projects for the last year are utter flop. Photon Infotech don't have good skilled management team. They only know to blame and use bad words to the employees.

Appraisal:- Only female employees get good appraisal, Others get 3 to 4% maximum hike in an year.
Pros
No Free Lunch, No Free Coffee or Tea, We get water for free
Cons
9 hours production hours, 9 hours in front of the machine is mandatory. High level politics, Only 3 to 4% maximum appraisal in an year

Bring on the pain
Creative (Current Employee) –  USA15 July 2015
If you like long hours, broken business processes, and incompetent management, then this place is for you. But wait, there's more. They will also give you a poor benefits package and a 401k with no company matching. Who does that by the way? Photon does because they don't care. All joking aside, this places is a horrible place to work especially if you're a creative. Don't be fooled by the positive reviews, my guess is most are dummy postings created by the HR team in India. Any person that has worked here more than a few days would know they are complete fabrications and definitely don't represent the reality of what it's like to work at Photon.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Pretty much everything else

Micro level management including your tea/coffee and lunch hours.
