  1.  

    It took a month to get my first paycheck. Robbing Peter to pay Paul. Or should I say robbing Raja to pay Bhaskar.

    I worked at Mahindra Satyam

    Pros

    A great paycheck. They paid me well. I received proper recognition for the hard work I invested in the client.

    Cons

    Didn't like consulting. Like working for one company, not multiple. Satyam did not pay me for an entire month and they were not honest about that. I was misled. They also made employees coming from India pay for their own plane tickets and they took forever to reimburse them. Now I know why. They were mis-managing their money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie.
