I joined the company with 2 rounds of technical coding, last year in august. The Interview process was smooth and fast, I loved how all the communication was transparent. (Its because we are given proper training and description of the requirements is often clear. I know this from the other side of the table.)
Its a great company to start your career, if you are looking for some job security and learnings as well. This company is almost 30 year old and this year we hit billion dollar mark, I was lucky to be one of them who could actually see their company growing in stocks and performing well.
Being a fresher, you will get a three months training ending with one exam to clear your probation period, and then based on your performance you would be assigned to projects which may or may not align with your training. I was lucky to be trained in full stack and get a project as a fullstack developer.
I work with intuit as our client on QuickBooks. Nowadays, My key skills involve feature development using React. One of the highlights of my experience at persistent has been incredibly supportive colleagues, people here readily offer assistance, share knowledge and collaborate seamlessly making the overall learning experience satisfying. Seniors or juniors you will love the work culture and people.
Overall its a good company to start your career but I must warn you for a few things as well. I have listed it down as pros and cons below .
- Your over all experience in the company depends on the client project you work with, like in my case its intuit.
- Your seniors will be really friendly and helping towards your learning, but try respecting seniors and do not consider them your friend with whom you share your personal life with.
- Some times nature of your work can be repetitive leading to no growth.
- Location and timing flexibility ( you have to inform your manager about it.)
- Food facility
- Health care and investment support
- Goodies and talent recognition activities.
