Typical Indian Consulting company till Raju told the story of riding the tiger, been trying to rebuild since then.

Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWas a typical Indian services company with Raju, since then people are working hard to increase revenue and customer base. There are some hard working folks at the senior level.

ConsIs nowhere near its best of times, at offshore everything is scrutinized, including swipe in/out time.

Advice to Senior ManagementWill it matter?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Its a good company as far as benefits and starting pay but there is no room or motivation for improvement or promotion

Unix Administrator (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam

ProsThe people are really nice.

ConsThe pay isn't great. There is no motivation for career advancement and their policies are a nightmare. Sometimes you are forced to fill out reports and things that don't pertain to the current job just to fill out a timesheet...

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your HR. Don't lock people out of certain systems for not filling out surveys. Have surveys that pertain to actual job and in the field work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Satyam needs to change

Consultant (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Mahindra Satyam

Prosopen ness and ability to bring your ideas in front of others. Moreover people are friendly and some consultants were very sharp and intelligent.

Conslack of professionalism. less accountability. More of a take it easy kind of attitude. No body was every fired for bad performance. people are very picky about things

Advice to Senior Managementget more accountability from people and provide some personal space. there seems to be an attitude of non functional company. bring in more consulting folks

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Needs strong Investment Strategy and Business Vision to compete in this super competitive global IT services market.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam

ProsThe organization provides an opportunity to make your mark in it's rebuilding efforts; by enabling business growth and creating an eco-system of client/partner relationships w/ direct involvement of newly onboarded Senior Management.

WIth a presumably forward looking new leadership, giving right opportunities to middle management and pushing the envelope makes tremendous sense. The only caveat being not to "over-do" the sales; but complement it with strong business commitments that impact the longer term & medium term goals.

ConsStill trying to stay out of the woods, thru an early start to its rebuilding efforts. It needs strong business vision that can cut across multiple roles in a global organization and can support it's growth.

Seems shrewd in its principles and conniving to put interpersonal relationships first. It is yet to make it's mark as an internationally renowned professional organization. Low opportunities for people in the field to voice out their concerns.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together at building a professionally viable and sustainable Global Organization

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
