Is not a good experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hexaware Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe everyday experience of being in fire provides great experience to learn. The learning and experience that could be acquired in 5 years could be achieved in less than a year.

ConsThe company lacks its vision in Employees Benefits and Individual Growth. There is a high job insecurity as after each project, you will end up looking for a job. The HR and Finance Departments are the worst I have seen in my career.. They have no regard to the Employees. Any one can sense it as soon as they join. Nil Work Life Balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe world has moved far away from slavery and taking advantage of people's limitations.. may be the management should be aware of this.

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

Stay away from them .. No Good

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Hexaware Technologies as a contractor for less than a year

ProsNothing I can think of

ConsWill say anything to get you to join and once on site the projects can be terminated and the employee is left hanging., Informed when starting of the longevity and job security if I moved and relocated to another state - once relocated company left me hanging and informed the project had ended in less than 3 months. I was left with expenses and a family.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should be ashamed of yourself.

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

Avoid them

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Hexaware Technologies

Pros- OK salary
- Policies can change easily. You resign and they will work for you
- leaves
- Small company hence you can talk to senior people easily (if you work in the same office)

Cons- Work like a startup. No process in place. Everything on paper.
- No formal communication. You write emails to anyone in the organisation (HR, manager etc). They will not reply or work on it, until you go to them or call them personally.
- Less projects henceconsider yourself lucky if you can stay onsite for more than 1 year continously.
- They will do 6 months project in 3 months and expect you to deliver the same. How to do it is your problem.
- One of my friend joined them at onsite in US and the project was supposed to go on for 1 year. 2 months after joining the project was scrapped.
- More managers and less developers in projects.
- The hours you spend in office is equal to the work you do. If you have to leave early for some reason then you are inefficient and do not work.
- Work from home or remote work authorization is a sin here. Either come to office or take leave.
Work from home means that you are only enjoying.
- HR policies can change at any moment , according to what managers want.

Advice to Senior Management- When in rome, do what romans do. In US, don't ask someone sitting in India to decide the working hours. See what happens in big US companies. People don't sit beyond 4:30 -5:00 pm. They work from home without any problems.
- Don't advertise for recruitment if you are not sure of the project itself.First get the project and then recruit.
- Food for thought - "the strength of company is hardly 8k, then why it has never come in the list of "best company to work for". If you cannot do it with 8k, then you cannot do it in future as well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Senior Technical Architect

Senior Technical Architect (Former Employee)
Chennai (India)

I worked at Hexaware Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

ProsUntil you are in good book you get values.
Lateral salary is higher for market standards.

ConsHexaware finance team is like your previous birth enemy waiting to take revenge for every opportunity.
Worlds worst finance policies are here and everything is against employees. Pays lot of taxes by deducuting in your salary to income tax of India.
Every project has 1 green tag(10+) yrs who can do anything to you and screw you for anything. If you like or dont like if you surrender to them and say 'crow is always white color' to survive everyday.
If you say no for very first occurrence with you PD & above gear shift happens from that moment and you count you deadly days from then.
You name anything you have a bond for it for joining, visa,travel,training and some times simply to incur any loss happened.
Monthly average 9.5hrs and mandatory physical presence per day of 7.25hrs (considered as half-day) else automatic leave deductions.
Everyone offer letter is unique and will have new clauses for everyone.
ENTRY IS EASY BUT EXIT NEEDS BLOOD TO COME OUT.YOU WILL HAVE TO LOOSE SOMETHING TO COME OUT.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreen tag are killing you organisation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
