    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Being from the mainframe background , I want to leave this company as early as possible

    Cons

    It has very less number of projects and you struggle to get one when ever you are on bench. Managers are simply lunatic and lack sense of professionalism. Also the quality of work you get is very bad and is worthless and a obstacle to your future growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People working under you are a asset to the company donot exploit them.

    Pros

    The company was excellent to work before 2009.

    Not an encouraging work environment. HR policies are employer friendly and NOT employee friendly. It used to be a good company before 2009. No salary hike for anybody.

    Pros

    Everything in this company fails, so you can see first hand and try fix these problems if you get a chance
    good place for people with less than 10 yrs of exp. If you are okay for long hours, peanuts for pay, but good opportunities for self learn, then this is the place to be

    Cons

    useless leadership and senior mgmt
    bad organizational culture
    Average pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your sales and relationship teams right
    and please engage with your clients. Learn from your competition.
    Stop being so stingy.
    learn to treat your employees fairly. It pays you back BIG dividends.

    Management must listen to the ground level associates.. they need to understand the concerns of associates. Also the onsite opportunity must be made round robin..

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are Indian, and starving, it's a job.

    Cons

    Disorganized, no training, no leadership, no one in charge
    Takes forever to get reimbursed - months
    HR practices highly questionable - will tell you anything to get you hired, no negotiation, take it or leave it attitude
    Policies make no sense, made without any understanding of how things work by people who have never had to deal with it, and have no skin in the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to finish cleaning out the trash post-Satyam crisis. Need to hire regional management, abolish the "brown ceiling" culture. Need to seriously review regional policies, not everything can be efficently run out of India.

    Could do without multi layer hierarchy.
