    AIS corrected the mistake

    Software Engineer II (Current Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsBefore listing the pros, I would like to mention that March-2014 firings were rolled back. All employees are called back and most of them joined. The sudden let-go happened because AIS lost a big client and maintaining 25 people on bench was tough. It was heart breaking and painful for everyone. But as soon as AIS got the vendor, they called back all the employees and some of them got hikes in salaries too.

    Pros -
    1 - Work on new and upcoming technologies.
    2 - Good salary and free lunch.
    3 - WFH option
    4 - Everyone is knowledgeable.
    5 - Promotes new technologies.

    Cons1 - Did some firing on short notice in past.
    2 - HR needs to improve the response time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAbove everything - Keep a good exit process. Lot of employee felt bad the way they have been told that no need to come from next day and email ids will be blocked.

    Suggestions -
    1 - Now the company is growing so AIS should have a Project Management Group. This group does evaluation of the project at every step on a periodic basis.
    2 - Risk management - Keep the backup plan ready.
    3 - Provide quarterly updates to the employees that how the organization is doing.
    4 - Take up the maintenance projects also.
    5 - Take up KPO projects also and hire people with simple computer skills. These projects may not generate lot of revenue but these projects runs for year after year and is a continuous source of income.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
