    Flexible work hours; telecommute option; approachable supervisors and decent work environment; no mistreatment or verbal abuse of employees as it happens in typical Indian offices.

    Cons

    Terrible work-life balance, there is NO life, especially for the managing editors!!!

    I have been working at Cactus Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is one of the best places I have ever worked. While the work is taxing in terms of both hours and intensity, you could consider this the best 'training ground.' I wish I had joined Cactus as a fresher; the work ethic it inculcates in you is the most valuable takeaway any first-time employee could have. Cactus's HR initiatives are another fabulous aspect of working here. The HR team goes well beyond expectations in providing a fun working environment.

    Cons

    Striking a good work-life balance can be tough. Owing to the nature of the work, especially within the editorial teams, there are times when at least some employees are required to work on holidays; so Dusshera, Diwali, Christmas, and New Year's Eve, when everyone else is relaxing, might be exactly when you will need to work.

    Pros

    The opportunity for growth, ability to work in great teams and with great people, in a fast-paced and evolving industry.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was not always great, but that's partly my responsibility; give 110% for my team.

    I worked at Cactus Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, good leave options, quick growth if dedication and performance shown, pay is good and always on time.

    Cons

    Cost cutting taken to extreme, several leaders are not mature, company's decisions seem questionable, changes not thought through and seem hap hazard.
