    Pros

    Good training for freshers.. Decent place to start a career

    Cons

    Very low salary.. Unethical management which cares less about employees welfare.

    Advice to Management

    The management should learn to hear the stories told by the company's attrition rate. Rather finding excuses for that.

    Pros

    Good co-workers that are friendly, various opportunities to work on many different projects.

    Cons

    18 months before you are even looked at for any advancement, strict sick day policy (you have to be in the hospital for 3 days before you are allowed to use them. In order to advance they have in house certifications that are mandatory to pass before you are allowed to advance your career. Once you are reach a C4 you are no longer eligible for bonus payouts. If you ever decide to leave they immediately end your insurance and then hold your paycheck for 20 business days. Low moral from so many leaving the company in oder to find pay for what they are worth. They use a proxy server to keep you from going anywhere other then what they consider ok for internet use, this also prevents some sites that have api documentation that need to read. Local managers have their hands tied when you are offered another position, and can do nothing to retain employment.The lack of projects that will keep most of the employees on what they call the "bench" for months so you find yourself trying to find way to keep busy.

    Advice to Management

    Realize this is the USA and not India. The work culture in the USA is different and adapt to help work with your employees

    Pros

    As long as you are billing they will leave you alone. Not as slow as other india-based companies.

    Cons

    It is a contract by contract job. Do not expect anything about your long term growth because you are are your own.

    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 Management

    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.


  7. Recent policies made company under big risk

    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 Management

    Please change the recent policies.
    Make transperancy in policies.
