    Great place to work, lot of employee benefits and relaxed atmosphere

    Principal Business Analyst (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsStrong work culture, employee benefits and great work environment

    ConsCompany does not maintain hiring standards and waste a lot of money on just maintaining very average work force of a high salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the standard of work force in terms of educational background in quality of hiring. Though the company offers one of the best infrastructure on its campuses and provide benefits and salary at par with all top class companies in the world ...yet talented individuals still shy away from it as it does not have a exisitng talent in its workforce

    Insecure Jobs

    Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    Pros-Great facilities( Gym,Library, all sports facilities, Doctor on campus, different clubs,campus with great landscape)
    -Great benefits ( Health & Live Insurance coverage, Yearly free Health checkup,Team outings)
    -Compensation is generally good.

    Cons-Job insecurity. CEO asked employees to get used to job insecurity. Very frequent layoffs.
    -Current CEO has the history of selling off the companies he worked for - Taleo, PeopleSoft. Most employees are of the opinion he is cutting costs to show it as profitable and then sell off CA.
    -Career progression is very difficult. It depends completely on how much visibility and impression you have gained from Managers rather than on the work you have done.

    Advice to Senior Management-Executive management repeatedly talks about Self-directed Agile teams but Sr.Directors and Managers get involved in the Team's work and direct them.
    -Please differentiate show-offs and efficient people. Visibility is not everything.
    -Sr Directors and Managers regularly take feedback from team members but manipulate that to favor their credibility. Stop taking feedback to project management in good light and start taking feedback to improve the productivity of employeed.

    Career progression may not be so easy

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsGreat infrastructure and excellent facilities. Opportunity to learn new technologies. Commitment from top management in investing in the training of employees.

    ConsThere is no conscious effort from the Management to understand how effectively his/her direct reports work. If you believe in the old school thought of letting your work speak, then be prepared to be at the losing end.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take the comments made by employees in EOS a little more seriously.
