    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Mahindra Satyam in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process with Satyam was ok but with client wasnt good. Hiring process wasnt professional. HR is pathetic. They dont give a heed to employee concerns. Once the visa was approved, they just pressurize you to join at any cost and keep on following on a daily basis to check if you are joining or not. Lot of insecurity and unprofessional attitude.
