    Pros

    There are no pros for working with H&M. I've had nothing but horrible experiences with them starting before my employment and following the months after I resigned.

    Cons

    -Contract took too long to finalize (about 4 weeks)
    -They don't appreciate their employees
    -They'll take as much out of your paycheck just to stuff their wallets
    -Agreements are never fulfilled
    -No matter you're work experience they'll make you feel unqualified and worthless

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company isn't successful without employees. Learn to value your workers and compensate them appropriately. Stop trying to pinch pennies to save a buck.

    Pros

    Ask whatever you can ask for. Screw them. And join only if you have no other choice.

    Cons

    Useless, no professionalism, disgusting. Only contractor jobs. Its not a company its a consultancy.

    They will use you and then throw you out when their work is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop harassing employees!!!

    Be jobless rather than working with this organisation.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Chennai (India)

    Pros

    There is no single positive point to say about the organisation.

    Cons

    The people wont respond to the employees once they got deployed at client location.
    PF transfer takes very long period. It wont get transferred during the employee tenure over there.
    They cut the taxes form the salary and wont pay the tax to IT dept. (During the tax filing we come to know)
    Regarding Reveling letter it takes 3 to 4 months, to get the reveling letter.
    Forget about the matter of final settlement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play with the carriers of the people.

    Company of irresponsible Management

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Chennai (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Chennai (India)

    Pros

    Each positives have a lot of negatives in it. So please read carefully before deciding.

    1) Salary

    2) Not much work and learning exposure and conversion at well established product based client companies

    Cons

    1) Salary - you can even get 100 % hike. After joining you can threaten them of resigning and they will try to compensate you with another 50% to retain you(happened in my case). However exponential hike is not good for your career and you will never get job outside with the same salary.
    Why this company pays this much is because it has no values even after several years of existence. I don’t think it will attain that in the future as well. Hence huge salary hike is major attraction to persuade the candidates to accept the offer.

    2) Not much work and learning exposure especially if you are deputed to well established product based client companies. You will become lazy at client office and get used to it. If you get converted by chance, your learning curve will become flat afterwards. After spending considerable time there, you would be perfectly used to that env and you won’t consider getting a new job. Your knowledge and thinking capacity will degrade year on year and finally you will become ineligible to get job outside.

    3) False promises – They will throw multiple promises and most of them will not happen/exist at all. Notable promise is 99.99999% conversion after one year deputation at client. This is utter false. I have seen some mere 20-25 % getting converted while for the remaining the contract might be extended or fired or they themselves move out of company. Conversion is entirely based on the client discretion and not at the hands of you (or your performance in 50 % cases) or H&M. Only people showing exceptional talents will survive. Most of the people who join this company are of low – medium level skills and knowledge. So 99.99% conversion is illogical.

    I really doubt some of the positive reviews are intentionally posted by H&M itself to make the candidates to rethink of accepting offer.
    I will never agree to any of the positive reviews except salary hike and more work life balance and again these positives are absolutely negatives for me as I explained above. Money and comfort will block your eyes and give you temporary pleasure. But your wrong decision to join this company will put your life in peril.

    Finally my humble advice to all, please stay away from this company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You people don have any future.
    Shut down your company and get lost. IT culture will improve.

    WORST DECISION EVER TO JOIN Helios

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Bangalore (India)

    Pros

    This section could be deleted for this company for good. i do not see there is anything good at present or in the near future.

    Cons

    THE management is full of IDIOTS and don't know how to talk to their employees. Salary is NEVER PAID on time and they keep telling stories every time. The HR people don't even answer the calls and no response to the e-mails as well. Even if you are jobless, don't join this company. search for better opportunities. i had to move to a different location and there was no relocation given and the monthly pay used to be almost 15 days late which pushed me more into financial burdens. If you are rich and don't have to worry about the salary and are just doing the job for a hobby, do join this firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand these IDIOTS would never ever change. They dont work, they dont respond to e-mails or phone calls and still have the audacity to be rude with employees. Bunch of fools running the show.
