    I worked at KPIT Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a small company so you can get to know all people pretty fast and can make the vital connection. One can move up pretty fast if they fit into the company culture.

    Cons

    Being a small company, if there are issues with the top/mid management people, one can suffer a lot due to alienation. what value few old timers bring to the table?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know who in the organization is adding real value to the bottom line and growth of the company. You have to infuse new local blood into the system.

    I worked at KPIT Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a fresher, this company is the best launch pad I have come across; but for a mid-level experienced professional--you may get stymied from the beginning.

    Cons

    --Typical tradition management approach with lots of favoritism and partiality.
    -- When comes to work appreciation you have to work more than 15 hrs work is required from your side to get recognition.
    -- No transparency in appraisal process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more open to the employees to discuss their interests rather than superimposing with your own hand picked responsibilities that will get assigned to the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are a part of you and not your slaves. The least you can do is listen to them. Try and retain the talent.

    Pros

    The management is very experienced and guides one in tough situations. Management interacts a lot with the development team members to see if everything is going okay.

    Cons

    Salaries are very poor, they pay at least 50% less than another company in the same field. There is no system for bonus and no other benefits except for normal insurance. Computers provided were out dated at least 4 years ago. The employees are not hardworking at all and most of the times getting the smallest things done takes an unbelievable amount of argument and efforts to accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do something regarding the low salaries you pay, benefits and employee satisfaction index along with the slow computers that everyone uses.

    Pros

    In Bangalore location the work culture is better compared to Pune (headquaters).

    Cons

    1) Salary is poor 2) Most of the projects are testing some feature developed overseas, code developers will have to struggle. 3) Engineer is just a head count, made to switch from one project to another, good job opportunities are difficult to find. 4) KPIT management is expert in making a good and skilled resource go waste.

    Flexible work hours. Climate of Pune.

    Cons

    Medium sized company. KPA & KRA of employees are not defined clearly. Company doesnt have a formal structure. No structured program for MBA. Doesnt like to spend much on training and development. No offence intended but marathi is more common than english inside the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls follow industry's best practice. Hire people with recognized credentials. Adopt a more organized structure.

    I have been working at KPIT Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Lots of customer to work and hence lots of exposure

    2. Flexi work timing and work from home available with manager approval

    3. Lots of onsite opportunity

    4. Good work place with well ventilated building and lighting

    Cons

    1. Solution Architects, Senior Solution Architects & Principle solution architects are best with best when called as Architects, Senior Architects & Principle Architects because they lack solutions

    2. Both Employer and Employee contribution for EPF is paid by the employee. Employer contribution is part of your CTC (Cost to Company) and company is not paying any amount for the welfare of the employee.

    3. Organization considers Saturday and Sunday working is part of project requirement and employee ends up working 80% of weekends in any project.

    4. Employee has committed suicide due to work pressure in the organization and company was least bothered to pay compensation to the family.

    5. 3 quarters, company performance will be good and in 4th quarter when appraisals are to be given, the company performance will go low

    6. Sales team give false hopes to clients about the technical skills of the company and the work force.

    7. Knowledge in automotive domain is very low and most of the customers are dissatisfied and never turns up.

    8. Very greedy management with aggressive business expansion dreams at the cost of employee’s personal life. Employee welfare is the least priority in the organization

    9. Too much of politics between the higher grade managers to establish their supremacy.

    10. No mails from management can be seen without the statement “Need to be one billion dollar organization”.

    11. No work balance life of Employee. Employee will be called in mid nights for taking project status. Leaving office at right time is a crime.

    12. HR, Finance and other non-revenue departments are pathetic. Without escalations, mail chains and follow-up, none of your requests are processed by these departments.

    13. Compared to market standards, KPIT pays very low salary.

    14. Company canteen is so expensive that you end up paying 40% of your salary for food.

    15. No free coffee/tea. Even stationary materials are provided at a specific time for which employees needs to line up in front of the stationary room signing multiple registers.

    16. For a mid-size organization like KPIT, printer provided is the one used in homes. For printing papers, employee needs to line up in front of reception. No scanner provided.

    17. All your belongings like jackets, water bottles, any personal belongings are at employee’s risk. Company will not entertain any complaints when someone stoles it.

    18. Overnight, hierarchy is created in the organization and no proper/ defined organization structure.

    19. Transfers employees among different cities without employees consent and demands to move in a week period. HR threatens employees of losing jobs in case of unwillingness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please close the crest team, as it the biggest waste I have ever witnessed.

    Please care for the employee welfare along with your growth.

    Try to retain skilled employees than keeping junk rotten managers.

    Scrap the existing company portal and try to get some good and user friendly portal

    Stop tracking employee with sapience tools. Engineers are skilled enough to write a script and can show 200% hour log without working

    Please stop using "one billion" word in all the mails, meetings and events
