    I have been working at Persistent Systems (India) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing as such.Most of what I would write here would be basic facilities that every company is bond to provide.

    Cons

    I have been working since 3 year and so I think am in a comfortable position to suggest what this company is like.

    1>Worst Compensation/Hike/Career Growth
    There's no proper hike & compensation.I know people who are still Software Engineer for the past 8 years.

    2>Generic Track: Its all on customer's requirement
    You may have been hired as a developer but don't get tricked. You would have to work as a tester/tech support or you would be told to leave the company.

    3>HR-Employee Disconnect
    Team Leads & Managers think as if they are the owners of company.HR don't have any control over them.So if you screw up with your manager, you are dooooomed.

    4>Pure Politics
    No one would care about your talent. Its all about how well you gel-up with your subordinates. Its tough if you are a non-Maharashtrian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1> Please think about the employees career rather than your own and customers
    2>HR please connect with Employees and try to understand what really is going in the company

    Pros

    Good training, HR process, employee fun activities. Great food, transport facilities. Very well managed organisation in terms of Admin. Clean and safe.

    Cons

    No career ambition growth. You won't stick to one profile here, meaning, if you want to be embedded, then this is not the company for you. You will be seen just as 'resources'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Induct holidays on other Religious Festivals like Chirstmas/Eid/New Year, instead of only native religion holidays

    Pros

    Free lunch n eve snaks. Thats it

    Cons

    Many. Too much politics, favoritism almost every level, horrible band system. Appraisal scary .However much you get praised still not beyond their expectations. Salary not competitive. Too many flaws you get to know about you on the day of appraisal. Its bulls**t in short.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a life .
