We are a software company involved in development of software solutions to clients at US, India and other countries. We are planning to introduce shift system in our company. I would request you to share some information regarding this, as what you do in your company on the following:

1. Does a software solutions company (who develops solutions) operate in shift basis?
2. I hear that generally in companies where maintenance work is predominant operate on shift. Is this true with your case?
3. If a company works on shift, how many shifts will be there?
4. What are the timings of the shift?
5. How often will the shift be rotated? Is it on a weekly or monthly basis?
6. Will the senior employees(Project Manager, Delivery Manager) also come in shifts?
7. How will the support functions work? Will they also operate on shift?
8. Does your company provide pick and drop facility for employees?
9. Generally the pick and drop facility is at common point,do you provide home drop facility, if so when?
10. Do you give any allowance for night shift? If you do not mind can you share the amount?
11. Do you provide meals/snacks/dinner or anything free of cost at any shift?

Please share your company's practices for above queries.

Thanks in advance,
