    Very poor experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThings seem to move quickly in terms of delivering solutions but...

    ConsSolutions are thrown in mishmash and handover to bau support is non-existent.

    Worse is management thou. If you are non-indian you will be discriminated against. No career or training for westerners. I have many years career and experience but it is not relevant as I'm not Indian. hr process not followed correctly. Managers blatantly lying
    A genuinely horrible company, who talk the talk but fail on all accounts to walk the walk. I would seriously advise any fellow IT professional to go elsewhere, ignore the hype as once inside...the reality is far from the hype. This company believe it fair to remove ooh standby rate...and expect to be able to contact me out of hours, where they expect to pay me a rate of 1× normal pay whatever time of night....and even if it inconveniences my family life!!!

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)

    ProsWorked with some brilliant people, staff cheered each other up lots.

    ConsManagement has no idea what they're doing, they did their very best to demotivate and discourage staff. Staff who had many years experience were ignored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt least attempt to dress professionally

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    not a nice place to work..

    Sales Advisor (Current Employee) Armagh, Northern Ireland (UK)

    ProsNo Qualifications required.
    No experience required
    handy for students
    good training
    fair commission
    you will learn things such as the "small print in contracts"

    ConsThe management and team leads - useless and lazy.. and some cases broke hcl rules
    cold calling calling people who didn't want to talk to you
    selling products which are useless
    pay not enough for the abuse you get
    poor hours.. started at 12-9

    Advice to Senior Managementbefore taking a contract out for selling. make sure it can sell.
    show more respect to employees
    invest in a better system.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
