    Pros

    Good delivery capability. Family like organizational setup where seniors are`very helpful. Lot of opportunities available in various fields and various verticals

    Not very strong on management consulting and large transformational projects. primary a price point player despite better delivery capability than most management cosnulting firms

    Advice to Management

    Beef up the management consulting component and seek out transformational projects even if some investment needs to be made in the initial stages


  9. Senior Management doesn't Care about you, still Company's alive because of Dedicated and great technical manpower.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    a) Peers are good, don't expect a lot of goodness from senior management. b) Some level of transparency still exists. A lot of transparency existed in old Satyam. c) Very good Skilled & Intelligent employees around you, therefore there is opportunity to learn a lot of things. d) Learning Center in Satyam is very good and you get to learn a lot of free things, which you wont get to learn in any organization.

    Cons

    a) Management (one level above you and all higher levels) don't care about you at all. What you are doing, whether you are satisfied, dissatisfied, your concerns etc. b) Apraisals is not satisfactory to some extent. c) You have to really be stricter and smarter and clever to get your dues and what you want from the higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Try to proactively get yourself more involved with the juniors rather than having them leave. Remember your job is to take care of both employees and the client......I think you have forgotten the employees totally. Get your act together before a lot of good skilled labor gets away.
