    3. Facilities like WFH are not available.
    4. The estimation of work is so worse from the managers is that you are most likely to spend your time in office during weekends also.

    I worked at Tech Mahindra full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice place, lots of extra curricular activities happening in the offices. People are generally nice.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity for freshers. Promotions are a thing of the imagination, and the salary structure for college hires is ridiculous. Slightly better if you are joining as a lateral. Politics is rampant, which further stymies growth opportunities.

    Worse Management, Politics, Buttering, Less Salary Hike, Policy in Company Favor

    I have been working at Tech Mahindra full-time

    Pros

    Brand:- A Stable IT company with a Big brand which matters sometimes.
    Stable:- You have a stable job if your are not ambitious i.e less focused and want to see a long association with out any growth.
    Opportunity:- Good opportunities for fresher as they have no choice for salary instead want to have experience with a a company with a Big Brand.

    Cons

    Buttering:- You should proficient buttering your supervisor to get good opportunity.
    Politics:- If you are good at doing politics along with buttering then you are the brand ambassador.
    Hike:- If you are hard working guy and ambitious but your manager or higher authority is in favor of politics and prefer butter then expect less or no hike. There is strong politics who will get how much package, they will always try to keep you in dark.
    Worse Management:- A lot unskilled managers with strong political background. They know only bring clients and collect money from them. As per that they employ middle level managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Vigil eye on Middle level management and their skill set., Have a feedback system to get insight about what is happening behind the hood. Create good environment and facilities for engineers and developers as well because they are real assets of the company. Bringing projects and releasing money from clients is not sufficient. As an integral part, Quality of products matters a lot. If developers are not getting good incentives and are victims of politics made by senior management then company is somewhere compromising with quality.
