    I worked at Aricent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good to work here during starting phase of your career or with a 2+ yr of exp. Opportunities to work in multiple projects and subsequent recognition, Lot of opportunity to enhance your technical expertise, Yearly performance review is very transparent, Manager & HR will honestly hear your concerns and will try their best to resolve them

    Cons

    Ontime promotion may not be given even though you are eligible for it. You have to wait for vacancy in the ladder. Mediocrity is another thing which you can notice after you get accustomed to company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the people who really work hard/smart and try to get rid of the people who encourage mediocrity

    I worked at Aricent full-time

    Pros

    Good, challenging work environment. People who mentored me were very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot from them.

    Cons

    We can't work in the projects we like. We should work in the project which is allotted to us though it is not interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Can give option for the employees to choose the project in which they want to work. The base salary can be increased for entry level engineers.

    I have been working at Aricent (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible timings. Good Exposure for learning.

    Cons

    Hikes are not so impressive. My team is not modular, any module task can be allocated to any person irrespective of his competency. No on-site in my team.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, they should guide in driving a project not just allocating the tasks.
