    Pros

    Great place to start your career. Initial growth is very good. If you are lucky and end up in a great project, your career will really take off..

    Cons

    Heavy middle level management, lower than standards salary growth. Growth becomes lethargic once yo reach a certain level. People without connections may not grow as quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the above cons.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    High Growth Opportunities for Performers, Great Customers to work with and best in class professionals. Broad service offerings spanning across technologies and business lines. Loyal and committed employees

    Cons

    Salary and compensation is not on par. Recovering from the financial scandal by ex-chariman has marked a dent. It is getting tough for old timers to adopt with the new management. The new management are more short term focussed and want to cut costs and make the organization leaner. Not looking at long term which may impact down the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivize the hard working associates, after all bcoz of them this company has survived.
