Mixture of positive and negative view on this company

Senior Engineering Project Manager (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Aricent full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt was good work environment. Appreciate effective functional units like IT, Admin, HR. L&D team is really amazing, they keep on identify new programs and plan new trainings which are really useful. IT helpdesk is good in their turn around time to solve any problem reported

ConsPast couple of years, there are frequent re-orgs and changes with the Leader ship. The re-orgs has become trial and error and no proper strategy defined. Some HR policies like especially performance reviews are not good. Some leadership (AVP level) people are incapable. .

Advice to Senior ManagementRequires proper scrutinize at senior level before they appoint. The leader ship has to have right focus to develop business to show good utilization and good revenue to the organization. Bad leader ship affects not only company but career for hundreds of people.

Mixed bag as is any large company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Aricent

Pros- Good projects
- Travel opportunities if its your thing
- Good facility as far as facilities in Gurgaon go!
- I found recognition and recommendations were generous if you deserved them. (Remuneration is another matter!)

Cons- Like any large company, you can get lost in the organisation if you cannot hold your own.
