How many of you have had your boss’ sitting next to you with a hand on your shoulder and asking “aaj kya laye ho khane me ?” or changed his route on way to home  and dropped you home after a party?? Or the PM in your company asking you to get more of food so that everybody can eat or making fun of every single post on the technical mailing list?? These are just a few points I mentioned to describe the environment in my office.How many of us feel like going to office? Or let me ask how many keep waiting for that friday in office and just wish that monday never comes?? Well the scenario at srijan is different, people willingly coming on saturdays and sometimes even on sundays to the office. They dont wait for the weekend and want that monday to come. This is because of the environment that is present at Srijan. When I came for an interview, I was asked a question what kind of a work environment do you expect and I had no answers just that people should be helping and supportive. After spending some 10 days at Srijan now I understand what that question meant !

Open source is about freedom and truly if that’s how companies adopting the open source work then I guess I will not like to leave such an environment for whatever money is on offer.  In these 10 days I have been asked by many people what is the package and scope and things like that, but to each of one I have answered their questions and added one answer from myself, I am loving the work. Nice technologies, good clients and the best part the WORK CULTURE at Srijan is just terrific.

I had thought of writing this but was not getting time or I should say was behaving in a lazy manner but this blog post at my company’s official blog motivated me enough to finally pen it down here. Thanks to everybody at Sriajn.
