Life at Lucid

Work Environment: To Inspire and To Be Inspired

At Lucid, we believe that an organisation should be the place that inspires and motivates people to deliver their best work. It must encourage people to forge new ways, and creatively solve problems. It must give everyone the space to think, while innately establish a sense of collective discipline and mutual respect.

In order to achieve this motley group of needs, we focus on mentoring youngsters, encouraging high-performers, understanding women seeking second careers and creating opportunities to collaborate and share.

Here’s what some Lucidians had to say.

“Since joining Lucid as a fresher in 2011, I’ve come a long way personally and professionally. There’s never a dull moment at Lucid — variety of work I get to do here is very exciting. And the recognition is inspiring — I’ve been rising star for three consecutive years.

On the other hand, the trust the leadership has in me is heartwarming. Today, I’m leading a team working on Java, even though I wasn’t exactly a Java expert when we started. The project is going exceptionally well, we are all challenging ourselves and learning as we go along. I wouldn’t have got this much freedom, trust and opportunity anywhere else.

In the last five years, I’ve grown exponentially — learned technical skill, improved my communication, gained confidence and varied experience that is sure to take me places in my career!”
— C Pratheeban, Associate Tech Lead, April 2016.

 

“What excites me most about work at Lucid is the new challenges, and innovative solutions! For instance, I configured DataStage environment and developed a job that executed in less than 10 mins, to replace an existing PL-SQL code that took more than an hour! At Lucid, we don’t ‘deal’ with problems, we ‘fix’ it.”
— Ronak Parikh, April 2016.

Second Career: Everybody Deserves a Second Chance

Housewives and mothers returning to the workforce get a special welcome at Lucid. Our second career initiative offers you a flexi-time opportunity to return to work, without compromising on your family’s needs.
Here’s what some of our second career-women have to say about their work at Lucid.

“After a 9-year hiatus, I started my second career with Lucid last year! I’ve a combination of work-from-home and flexi-timings options — I work 2 days a week from home, and three days part-time in office. With this arrangement, I am able to manage the needs of my personal life, while independently pursuing a career in technology!”
— Gnanapriya S, April 2016

 

“When I returned to work after a 5-year break, Lucid gave me a flexible, fair and exciting opportunity to start my second career. I worked flexi-time — and returned home in time to pick up my son from school. Even as a part-timer, I got the same opportunities and challenges full-timers got; the same recognition and rewards.
In fact, in the past year, since I quit from Lucid to move to the US, I’ve come to realise that the learning, knowledge and lateral-thinking I’ve gained at Lucid are a great foundation to my career. SQL and its application I learned at lucid, for instance, continue to help me outperform peers at my current workplace!”
— Gayathri Muthukumaran, April 2016
