    Pros

    Good Flexibility - Excellent Work Life Balance
    Plenty of Opportunities

    Cons

    Very Less Yearly Salary Increments
    Long and Boring Promotion Process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Short-cut the promotion cycle, once an employee gets nominated for promotion by the management, it takes minimum 8 months to get the papers and there are lots of training and test programs he/she has to undergo before getting evaluated for promotion. And it is done by an external team which has no clue about the employee's capability. They should discontinue this process. Because when the management thinks that he/she is fit to be promoted, the story ends there.

    Pros

    Nice place to work.
    More and more work with number of projects
    Mandatory 9 hours work with access swipe tracking
    Strict disciplinary action rules

    Cons

    Less employee friendly
    Less recognition to employees working at india client sites
    Delayed project bonus to employees working at india client sites
    Project star awards are currently stopped. Earlier when the project star awards were given, then also delayed announcement of awards(after one or one and half year). Only the management knows when was the last time, the project star awards were given
    Some arrogant India business heads
    Very much cost conscious at the cost of employee minimum satisfaction

    In India, variable pay is yearly once and that too after 3 months passed in the next year. So your due amount is much delayed, bcoz of company rules. Many companies pay variable pay quarterly/halfyearly/monthly
    Project bonuses (for working hard /made to work hard at the client place) are at the mercy of the middle/high level management. Many companies pay the project bonus in the industry monthly promptly. But here it was thought as a complimentary, company is providing.
    The half yearly project bonus rules are employer friendly. The amount is paid with much delay (after 6 months, again you have to wait a quarter and again you should be in the same project during that time...the list of dependencies will only increase from time to time) They have many ways to stop the project bonus payment. Most of the employees are exploited here. No one can question that. The ultimate answer they give is "MANAGEMENT DECISION"

    The recognition RMG team seated at the office gets, the actual employees working at the client site will never get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more employee friendly with respect to the timely payment of amount/dues that are to be paid to the employees, instead of using the payment delay tactics. Ofcourse everyone works for the payment. Atleast the amount due to them should not be delayed
