    Former Employee - Software Analyst  in  Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Software Analyst in Boston, MA

    I worked at Bahwan CyberTek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Thankfully they credit Salary on time.

    Cons

    No care for employees personal life.
    No transparency with policies. Most policies verbal.
    HR and Delivery managers controlled by remote control of Sr.Management. More managers than developers who actually drive the business and generate revenue.
    Appraisals delayed forever all the time.When you get it discover it's good for nothing .
    Money deducting machine when you leave.
    Eat up your salary when you land in the US.
    Force people to work on technologies they not interested in. Mock at people who don't work on SOA not realising Oracle SOA is also built on top of Java. Java is an ever green field with new apis which might replace even Oracle SOA some day.
    Threaten people that they will not get good salary until they work on SOA.
    Keep talking about millions and billions pipeline but in reality that pipeline is dry.Overambitious and give false promises about growth prospects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop pushing people to work on SOA. Let them be comfortable with their skillsets and try to bring value based on those skills. Try to have an edge and get the best out of people with their current skills and let them hone their skills in the technical domain they are in than forcing them constantly to diversify with their skills based on company's whims.There are much more cutting edge technologies besides Oracle SOA.

    I think the CEO should connect more and try to learn about the grievances of the employees than sit remote and rely on reports. CEO should be involved closely and monitor all departments including HR to avoid any further collateral damage and ensure the workers below the C-Level are also happy as they are the lifeline and assets for the company.High time this realisation dawns on the top management.

    Bunch of crooks with Bania mentality

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant  in  Natick, MA
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Natick, MA

    I worked at Bahwan CyberTek full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I don't see any.. apart from salary coming into your account that because that is managed by 3rd party and all the money transaction are prone to Audit by IRS. But that salary is also way below Industry standards.

    Cons

    - Poor Management
    These guys are of typical Bania (arbitrator in Indian language) mentality. They don't have manager per-se , just the coordinator. Poor management skill and shrewd and cunning mentality. Bluffing client & employee 90% of times. Just care about billing and nothing else matter to them. Employee satisfaction word is not even in their dictionary.
    Manager will intrude in you personal time after office hours.

    - Lack of people skill
    They dont know how to deal with employees and client. Lies, lies & lies...thats all they have to offer. Simple words they all (managers sitting in Natick office) can be hero of the movie, if the movie name is : TRUE LIES !!

    - Employer friendly policies (and anti employee)
    No clear or written policies at all, they can be twisted each and every day in the favor of employer.

    - No career growth path, No learning opportunities.
    - Do not get fooled by their website and big claims or partnership with other software giants.
    They have no direct client just working as 3rd party vendors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guys, just have some moral standards...at least speak truth once in a day, you shave to show your face to God one day... dont fool employee with fake millions of dollars of pipeline... Be transparent and ethical to employees if you want to gain some respect, otherwise you will vanish forever very easily.

    Former Employee - Senior OTM Consultant  in  San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Senior OTM Consultant in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Bahwan CyberTek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Gives one an opportunity to come and work in US.

    Cons

    Hidden policies never lets one know what is the on-hand salary. Took approximately a year to provide additional documents for 221g and 6 more months to get the client interviews started. Never recognized the niche skill of OTM. You just get per diem instead of salary till you get the SSN no matter you are billable or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the policies crisp and clear.
