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

    Pros

    Good flexibility as there are options to work from home. There is free breakfast for employees. The HR team is really helpful.

    Cons

    The work culture is dependent on bullying others especially if someone has joined in new as people are in this company from a long tenure. The management encourages use of bullying and mental abuse to ensure that work is done with there is zero empathy to the claimed humane approach. This is true from top to bottom and all teams encourages such behaviour and makes the work environment very stressful. The fairness level is also low as on lodging complaint there is some amount of victim blaming.
