    I have been working at Aricent

    Pros

    good benefits. timely appraisal and performance review. if you have base location in india, you will get india trip every 2 years. Salary very good if comapred with other indian companies like TCS , infy etc

    Cons

    No green card processing. onsite employees just treated as a resource.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the employess at the client location. They bring more $$$ and work to bring better client interaction.

    I have been working at Aricent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay good salary, but if some one promised to pay relocation ask them to put it in written.

    Cons

    They hire you as full time employee even if they sign SOW for three months and no chances of renewal. Once the project is over they dont even give a chance to look for other projects.
    I joined in Nov 2012. they recruited more than 15 people(for one project) around month of NOV, by jan -feb 2013 they fired 10 people is in one project. one of them is on H1 Visa and his wife is pregnant .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent on SOW with your employees and never work with projects.which requires month-month SOW renewals.
