    Pros

    Great place for someone who just wants to play politics and throw others under the bus.

    Cons

    Everything about the company is a Con. Horrible policies, worst ever sr management, except the CEO (but she is surrounded by folks who know nothing about the business). If you are real professional, do not join this company. It will become your life's worst mistake.
    Zero respect for professionals. Driven by few good for nothing sales folks, who nothing about the business other than wining and dining.
    One can write a book about all the horrible things that happen at Birlasoft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please respect the professionals who really have valid interest in growing the business.

    Pros

    No work pressure because there is no work at all.
    Just fooling client and employee.

    Cons

    Disturbed work - life balance , managers can take weeks and months of leaves and employee have to answer hundreds of stupid question for a single leave.
    average appraisal of 0.5- 2 % ,
    Top management or HR dont even bother listen to employees.
    Many teams vanished because of poor management like PS Tech , Healthcare team.
    Discrepancies everywhere , like policies , Full and Final , Incentives.
    Increased notice period from 2 to 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cheating employees .
    very poor decision of increasing notice period duration to make your employees stay , instead try treating them well .
