Avoid! Management punishing to good people who care about business, running too many top people out

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CIGNEX Datamatics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExtended family dynamics, like I am in back in India again. Familiar and comfortable when understanding the company culture and what is expected of me, but very dysfunctional system for business. Good to place for workers to just get stuff done. As long as billing, they leave you mostly alone, except for evaluating new resources.

ConsTop employees are out or going out. Company heads act like they are really interested in what is happening, but don't make management follow through and surely does not care about people at all. The US leaders are the worst, setting us up to fail by telling employees and customers that we can do more than is possible and screaming on you, blaming all but themself. I am working in US, and now I see what is happen from old founder, disrupting the company and running it down, so he can take over. We are stuck if with visa, so be careful. Same many places like here, but do not think is any different at Cignex, is probably worse! I feel management shames many to do more work.

Advice to Senior ManagementDatamatics, please get new people into senior leaders, not just friends and those old thinkers from back home. The guys are not professional, and will not keep the company. We need some new western leadership, to change things, and to run as a real corporation with fair treatment and real opportunities. Most good people are out, and not coming back as long as same leaders who lie with promises are still in-charge and taking advantage.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad Resource Management, Worst HR

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Ahmedabad (India)

I have been working at CIGNEX Datamatics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you have reference or if you give smile to everyone or if you are non-technical but can talk sweet/smart, CIGNEX is for you.
+ Only handful of excellent technical people working as foundation/shoulder of the firm making this company worth joining. Don't want to name these excellent people but I must say that you are fortunate if you get chance to work with these very few (to be specific 3 people- 1 person each from Liferay, Testing and IT) excellent SUPER people who are always there to help and save the troubled projects as you can learn many things/tools/technologies/skills from them and you will never be insecure about the job and you will certainly become their fans. If you have worked in Cignex, you will easily figure it out who they are.

ConsCIGNEX Datamatics- Worst HR.
- HR Director (cartoon lady) supports non-technical and unskilled people. Skilled people are not identified and appreciated by HR and HR only likes the people who help in recruiting people fast even those people are dumb. Policies not in favor of employees.
- CEO doesnt value people.
- Very bad resource management and resource allocation for Development and QA.
- Awful processes. team working on processes and compliance work in reactive mode like filmy Indian police who reaches the place always late when incident already happened. lol!!! Pathetic!!! CIGNEX Datamatics HR Sucks!!!
- Politics doesn't allow good people to grow and bad people (good at talks) are thought of giving managerial posts. Demotivating.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce Politics. Encourage good people and promote techno managerial skills. Improve resource planning and management. Improve processes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
