The aroma of strong filter coffee greets you as you enter the lobby of the CtrlS office. Headquartered in Hyderabad, this tier- 4 data centre provides computer servers to various organisations for their data storage and processing works.

An employee driven company from the get go, the homely atmosphere and vibe of the office is reflected in every area. Aware of the nervousness that precedes a first day, the company takes all recruits through a family connect session to help them adjust to the new environment. Indeed, one will be hard pressed to find a lost looking face here.

No substitute for hard work
A keen believer in practice what you preach, CtrlS founder and CEO Sridhar Pinnapureddy follows the motto: work hard, stay fit and be happy and encourages his colleagues to do the same.

Since time is paramount for a software engineer, where a hectic schedule may not allow time for hitting the gym, the company offers gym and swimming facilities to its employees. So one can work out and recharge themselves ready to take on the day. After a hectic day, tired souls can go for a reflexology, spa and burn some calories in an energetic zumba session too.

In keeping with their fitness philosophy, CtrlS has a dedicated women volleyball and adventure team. Like other IT companies, employees here get benefits like insurance, 100 per cent reimbursement for higher studies, food coupons etc.

It’s a tradition for all the company employees to go for a movie and annual picnic. With a national award for excellence in energy management under its belt, CtrlS is not only employee driven but also eco-friendly.
