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.
I joined here as a fresher on Mar 2011. Since then I’ve learnt a lot in data warehouse and BI. Lucid is a great place to start one’s career; my colleagues and supervisors were always ready to support me.
It is inspiring to work for a company that encourages growth and offers opportunities for advancement. Quality work, great environment and learning opportunities are the reasons why I continue to work with Lucid. From my experience, for a person who wants to learn and grow personally and professionally, there are very few organizations that will help you grow. I’m glad that I got opportunity in one of them.

Here’s what some of our second career-women have to say about their work at Lucid.
“After a five-year break, I resumed my career in IT, with Lucid. I have been with Lucid for more than a year and it has been incredibly fruitful.
With flexible work timings, part time and work-from-home options, I manage my work and family rather well.
Professionally there are plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. Mentors who encourage us to explore new things, working with highly talented team members and a conducive work environment keep me motivated.”
— Sahithi, Senior developer
Just as I was about to give up on the hope of finding a suitable part-time job that accommodated my needs for flexi-time and work-from-home, Lucid came my way. I began as a part-time analyst on a 3-month trial basis.
It has been 3 years since and have never looked back. Lucid’s leadership and values are unique and the mentoring they provide not only helps you to brush up on your skills but also helps you to learn & develop new skills.
The knowledge that I have gained and the challenging projects that I have worked on at Lucid has been an enriching experience professionally and personally.”
