    Pros

    Hard working people with good intentions.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, egos of senior staff and other coworkers, no processess or procedures that are of value, and one main account in the United States. MM4 is a tool and not a long term cure for Xchanging profitability in procurement.

    Pros

    Let me think of a pro.....parking garage is great, exercise room within the building is also valuable, no walls on the cubicle could be a pro to some to be exposed to all to hear and see you all day long.

    Cons

    Before the British came in and took over it was a tolerable place to work. After that all went down hill. Brits said "We listen to the workers and not management cause they know the system and do the work" . Then what happened to our MSA department? The most experience employees we had were fired after reaching a 1m annual goal. Those that were left were looked over for advancement and continue to be treated as illiterate candidates for growth or advancement. The old Senior Management are fearful for their jobs and therefore tell the Brits what they want to hear. We have not had a pay raise in 4 years and the deductible on our health benefits is so high it is not worth having it. When the new manager of our department was brought in she was never introduced to us by management. No email no anything, just this person who showed up one day. Communication and information is not broad-casted to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do as you say and listen to your employees, they hold the key to Xchanging future. Bring back those at any expense, that ran our cash cow department that is now being run in Texas by people who do not know how to spell "MSA". There has not been any new business here in months and our MSA department is what pays our salaries.

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros.....

    Cons

    No leadership, No communications, Egos of managers who believe their position is more grandeur than it is, Hire people who feel they need, then don't have the roles or the dynamics in the jobs to test peoples skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, take note of employee surveys and don't think because you are a manager everyone is beneath you. Think about this....When you are in a toilet cubicle the person in the cubicle next to you is the same as you, so treat people equally and do away with this archaic view from the 60s and 70s. The clue is in the name of the company...Changing!

    I worked at Xchanging as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good experiance on how not to engage in a professional manner towards clients. A higlighting experiance to see how unhappy clients are with the arragnements

    Cons

    Too many lies, dishonest senior managers, micromanaging middle managers in order to polish their own egos. openness policy needed whith clients. Too much time wasting chasing the small low hanging fruit rather than taking a more stragegic approach

    Pros

    Good salary in shared service teams.

    Cons

    If you are in technology sector and you want to learn, never join this company. I you are good in presales or bid management, you will learn how to declare bids as "no bid". Also, if you have a good potential you can learn a lot of filthy words, abuses and politics. Leads just want to make money while others who actually work on the bid are not given any credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing politics and promoting worst fellows.

    I have been working at Xchanging

    Pros

    Good Salary, big promises etc

    Cons

    Very bad n responses, employee benefit management. Incapable HR FUNCTION who has no control or track on queries and issues. Don't wonder u don't get Ur payments on time - from live experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please set up a proactive system, not reactive. There are payments of ex employees pending, etc , it's a shame.

    I worked at Xchanging

    Pros

    If you want salary without working, you can join Xch chennai. Coz there is no project, even if there is a project you started working, dont worry your project will get closed soon.

    Cons

    How many hours you can look at the monitor for a day without doing anything. Nothing goes right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nobody is helping the client, see I joined newly but the client was begging me from the first onwards for help. Not sure what onsite managrs doing. At last the project closed and you got a reason for that. Stop firing and hiring ppl.
