    I worked at Mindtree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location was good for me. They provide work from home option which is useful. Apart from this I do not have any Pros to state here.

    Cons

    This has the worst middle management ever !! Any rule will be relaxed if you are manager's pet ! If not then no hike, no promotion nothing and you are made to slog and you are not respected ! Managers here have to be trained on professional ethics first.
     They have some mandatory exams to be cleared for promotions which do not hold any value outside the company. Employee skills are not valued. More than your work your relationship with the manager matters.
    Lot of politics goes on during appraisals. Many people are forced to work on projects which does't suit their skills.
    Resource management is very poor. No room for innovation or creativity. Managers are just bothered about getting the work done and do not encourage any new ideas.
    Many people leave the organization frustrated with their managers and attrition rate is very high.
    My recommendation will be - please do not even consider this organisation if you want to grow in your career !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Please arrange training for all the middle management on soft skills, communication , professional ethics and team building and have a process to review their performance.
    2. Make the PF team an independent body and let them have some powers.
    3. Percentage of hike in the appraisal shouldn't be decided by the manager. It should be maintained uniform across the organization.
    4. Create more opportunities for people by getting larger , stable clients. Technical skills and work of the people should be considered rather than the number of hours they spend in office.
    5. All the feedback give during PLES and Exit interviews falls on deaf ears. Please have a mechanism to consider the feedback and work on it.

    Pros

    Professionalisam in work.
    Good top level management.

    Cons

    No transperancy in policies
    CTC will be decent but in hand what you will get is very low.
    You should know what are financial benefit you are entitled for and you need to fight with finance team to get it especially on onsite leave salary and gratuity once you leave the organisation.
    High attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change the recent policies.
    Make transperancy in policies.

    I have been working at Mindtree

    Pros

    Good Company for learning.
    Some of your concerns will be considered.

    Most of the people will compromise for many things like salary, promotions etc as they like and love company.

    Cons

    Very Very Very Poor and worst Middle Management.

    I recommend MindTree as best company when
    either your role is a project manager or above, other wise you should not play politic with middle management by praising them for their donkey jobs and talks.

    If you your role is less than a project manager think twice about stupid middle management and decide to join. Especially for Onsite and Chennai locations.

    Most of the middle managers are idiots and they feel that they are superiors and they talk like the are the gods ruling the company.
    Though senior management is good they wont focus on changing these middle managers.

    Many people leave MindTree not for better salary/ better oppertunity, most of the people will compromise for many things like salary, promotions etc as they like and love company. but finally because of the middle management they will MindTree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not only focusing on improving the company business, also please focus on middle management harrasements also so that, you reduce iteration.

    You can bring more and new business when you have best LEADERS not BOSSES.

    Try to understand the good peoples concerns while they are leaving and try to change the middile management or educate the middle management how to treat employees.

    In single sentence tell middle management to "Be as LEADER rather than as a BOSS"

    No opinion of CEO
