    Pros

    1. Exposure to latest technologies
    2. Flexible timing
    3. Supporting colleagues
    4. Located in heart of the city

    Cons

    1. Client driven projects
    2. Politics and Blame game at mid and high level management
    3. No job security
    4. Appraisal system is opaque
    5. Disconnected HR system
    6. Employee unfriendly policies
    7. Lack of professional trainings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure job security and win good long term accounts. Work towards building existing Accounts.

    Sale teams inability has become an open secret and turning out to be fatal to company's growth.

    Hopefully this is being addressed, else it will affect the nervous system of the organisation.

    Former Employee - IT in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - IT in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Generous training opportunities and courses with a good work life balance. Good office location (London only) alongside the easing of the dress code recently introduced, Friday's are dress-down days.

    Cons

    In my 3 years at this company I found that there was little (if any) emphasis on working together and teamwork, the culture is very much negative criticism, finger pointing and generally very little support from management. Overall moral by employees 'on the ground' was very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the low pay-scales and ensure that long-term strategies are established and well understood, whether in procurement, outsourcing or system development.

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

    Pros

    Nice and challenging work
    Provides training
    Onsite opportunity for few
    Good for graduates

    Cons

    Salary for graduates is in the range of 5000 Rs ( 100 $ ) per month
    No Canteen, hence no breakfast or snacks
    No access to sites like linkedin or any professional sites
    No Lunch or Dinner facility( except when new people join and are in training)
    No Canteen around 1KM radius
    NON AC operated Office, hence hell lot of mosquitoes for night shift. On weekends, you will be stormed by entire office mosquitoes( of all floors).
    No work life balance. Will have to work only in fixed shift timings as it is located in a remote location( 15 kms from city). Worst part is that building is located 1 Km away from Shimoga Bhadravati Main road. Hence you need walk for 20 mins when coming by own transport.
    Office is next to a chemical factory and you get horrible smell as if you are in hell.
    Will put you on bond for atleast 2 to 3 years even if you are experienced ( bond of 40000 to 60000 Rs, and you need to submit all of your marks cards).
    FAKE picture of this office is given to UK office clients and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for your employees, provide basic facilities like food and then think of innovation
    Keep standards in salary

    Too much nepotism

    I worked at Xchanging

    Pros

    Great office, when air conditioning works.

    Cons

    Definitely a case of who you know, not what you know. If your face fits, you'll go far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have management from other departments interviewing internal staff for promotion roles. Otherwise, favoritism always wins.

    Pros

    Provides good base to fresher, good knowledge about the insurance and reinsurance.

    Cons

    Does not give good hike. trap the employee without reason like not giving the bonus on time so that employee would hold in the office for more time. I guess only good for fresher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some preference to employee also. They work hard but not payed hard. So take care of employee also.
