    Pros

    health insurance is good medium sized consulting company

    Cons

    engineers not valued poor salaries non existent hr no training heroism. salesforce ppl will get more salary (still less than market) because salesforce resources are harder to get. on contrary, overall company % of salesforce revenue is not much. basically stupid management. no commuter benefits or 401k match

    Advice to Management

    respect your engineers even if you pay peanuts

    Pros

    A good place is you are from India and trying to get into US business world. Otherwise, don't bother applying.

    Cons

    Only interested in candidates that are from India. Very biased against 'Americans' and will phase you out. Cheap in pay and slow in paying commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of getting a discrimination case against you

    Pros

    1. Lunch 2. Evening snacks 3. Good office

    Cons

    1. Resource Management Group is the worst you will find in any company. The moment you come on bench, they will be after you to leave the company by giving you every possible indication and hostile behavior. They will make your life miserable until your last day in the company. It cannot get any worse than that. 2. The company has been going down the hill for almost 2 years now. Now reduced to a 750 people centre from the high of 1200 in September last year - negative employee growth. 3. No projects, no quality work only petty politics. Whatever work they do is at very small level. They can't think big.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your Resource Management Group, it is worst of all the groups at Nagpur.

    Pros

    -You can get good project and technology but that depends totally your luck.

    Cons

    -they train you in different technology and make you work in different technology - continuous assessment (tests) that too in technology you don't work and expect you to pass exam. - managers and team lead act as per hr policies and don't even care about resource. -No work life balance - assessments are mere reasons for firing

    Pros

    Join if you are Marathi Brahmin

    Cons

    HR and support functions are highly non professional. My leaves were deducted from FnF because i was falling short of few hrs. this was not informed to me so in short they expect you to complete 8 hrs on your last day :( Resource management people will start threatening on then first day of your non allocation. Poor management . people are promoted based on their relationship with seniors not because of their competency. small projects and negligible onsite opportunities and mostly are short term company is not performing good and stock is not doing good. overall a very BAD company to work with. if you are interested in spoiling your future then go ahead and join this useless company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some good talent from outside dont micro manage . 8 hrs criteria will lead you no where. look at TCS, Cognizant. you completed 25 hrs but where you stand ????

    Pros

    If you get stable project so it's the good company. Good learning and training(as per policies), but not a supportive environment to learn new things. Only one thing is good food.

    Cons

    Not a single big client. Project duration is very very less(max 2 months). Can not see any career growth. Be a worst decision if anybody join and want to eager about opportunity due to very less project or any good projects.

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn from any MNC and need to grow professionaly.

    Pros

    Good for freshers. Good technologies to work with if you are lucky. If you are lucky you get to work in center of the city. CEO is very down to earth

    Cons

    Company is struggling to get good projects. Many of the big customers have left and still leaving. It has many small domestic customers who don't pay much and expect lot of things so you end up working overtime in lot of the times. Difficult to maintain work life balance. Seniority is superiority and whatever they say is correct. Low pay scale than market. You have to work in any part of the city irrespective of your designation and your base location. Resource managers don't know anything about technology they just know on how to pressurize people. Many managers do micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Please take feedback from juniors about there managers. Some of them are really pathetic.

    Pros

    Company is good if you are getting allocated to project.

    Cons

    But if you are in bench then it is worst company than i realize. you need to struggle each time to be survive there. as in each Tuesday their happens assessment test. and pass marking of these test is 70%. for each test to clear you will have max 3 chance, if you didn,t get qualify to it then you may get fired. if you qualify one test then you will have to give another test and so on.
