    Pros

    If you as an individual know what you want to learn and want in terms of your career path, TechM leadership will help you achieve it. I say this from personal experience because i was given a chance to gain cross functional experience. but if you leave it on the firm to chalk your career path - finito.

    Cons

    too much of person dependency. you HAVE to know the right people in the right places to get stuff done. just ask "whose approval do you want to get this work done"

    Pros

    Extremely good work life balance.

    Cons

    Increments are depressing. Politics can be devastating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After Satyam merger you have destroyed satyam. Insted you could have used it to increase your revenues many folds.

    Current Employee - Module Lead  in  Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Module Lead in Bangalore (India)

    Pros

    1. Pay structure is good
    2. If you are billable to any client, the whole CTC you'll get in your hand after deducting Tax and Provident Fund. This includes your variable pay in your monthly salary and you don't have to wait for 6 months/12 months. If you are not billable, then also you're eligible to get at least 60% of your variable in your monthly salary.
    3. If you have a good relation with your manager, no need to complete stringent 9 Hrs in office.
    4. You may get onsite opportunities if you are lucky..

    Cons

    1. 21 earned leaves per year; no sick leave and no casual leave. Only one optional leave per year.. :(
    2. Became out-sourcing company. They'll hire you on their pay-roll and will depute you in some client place. They'll not even consider for TA(Travel Allowance) for you. Asking them, you'll get answer that it is in same city. So, why you need TA?
    3. Stupid Appraisal policy. If you are on high package, you'll get hardly any hike.
    4. Not for Experts.. You'll only get old and junk work for a client. If you expert, better choose a product based company.
    5. No room for new ideas and innovation (Though so many emails you'll receive every another day)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Satyam policy was good earlier. After TechM acquiring them attrition has been increased and this has been an out-sourcing company. Try to change that. Also, try to retain talents in your company rather than hiring another person with higher package. This will increase motivation and faith in employees.

    Bad pay raise
    Not much personal and professional growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly raise the salaries of current loyal employees rather than hiring expensive resources from outside.

    Pros

    Work is good in some of the accounts. You get good technical exposure.

    Cons

    Transport facilities are not good for those unable to meet the company bus timings of 9 AM to 6:30 PM. Many silly policies to enforce discipline like show ID card only with tags, dress code checking by security, etc. Appraisal cycle is not consistent and keeps changing every year. No extra benefits of getting promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please focus on introducing more employee friendly policies as opposed to disciplinary policies. Have a consistent appraisal cycle every year. Attach some benefits to promotion.
