    Consider IT (Un) Done .... !!!

    Senior Project Lead (Current Employee)
    Pune (India)

    ProsGrowth is good only if you have sensible manager and belong to a good account.
    If you are lucky may get an onsite opportunity quickly.
    Client exposure can be good

    ConsHigher Management does not have a direction or the skill/capabilities to carry the organization forward
    Treats IT like a BPO
    Appraisals are a sham and depends entirely on your relationship with the manager
    No training plans neither technical or soft skills.
    Dearth of skilled technical resources
    Positive aggression missing for increasing customer base or even retaining existing customers
    Processes are on paper only.
    Not a single employee friendly policy

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet yourself trained on how to make an organization sustain and grow and motivate sub-ordinates to contribute and not treat them like slaves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
