    Pros

    I was at Persistent for 7 months and as far as i think there are no specific pros of the company except good food. One good thing which I feel is there is no contract signed by the employee , so that the employee can leave any time.

    Cons

    Well my experience at persistent was very bad. following are the cons of the company which I feel 1. Along with me all the freshers were made to sit idle for as long as one month only for machine and cubicle allocation. 2. you many not find very talented people at Persistent. 3. The machines which are provided for the development are very slow, in-spite of requesting the manager to change my machine there was no action taken. 4. Extremely rigid hierarchy. Managers are treated like GOD in-spite they knowing nothing. 5. Not very challenging projects hence it gives us very less exposure to the real world of software. 6. Very less growth opportunity in terms of position and also salary. 7. If can become manager only if u spend good 15 years at Persistent. 8. No Client site opportunity. 9. Appraisal system very bad. 10. Internal Politics in team, which is very disgusting. 11. NOT allowed to think out of the box you are only supposed to do wat u r assigned. 12. No watsapp access, no gmail no facebook allowed during work hours. 13. You have to be in persistent for 9 hours every day even if u do not have any work assigned to u, which proves to be extremely irritating. 14. Over all experience very bad . 15. New Ideas are not welcome only because you are a junior. If you are good in technical knowledge then persistent is of course not the place for u. Persistent is good for people who are week in their studies and not aiming to do something big in their lifes. It is also good for the people who are aiming for their higher studies like US.

    Advice to Management

    Please respect the talent of freshers who join the company instead of respecting a dumb student who have spent a lot of time at persistent.

    Pros

    Good salary for lateral joiners.

    Cons

    You slog for months for the project. When the project gets over. You come on bench. On day 1 HR tells you. Find a project in 4-6 weeks or else mutual seperation Small projects. 3-4 months.. So by the time you get the hang of technology you need to move to another

    Advice to Management

    They need to check employee performance and deal with them accordingly. Current system makes you feel.. You are valued only when on project. If not on project you mean nothing to the company y.
