    Friendly place to work but company needs lot of corrections

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsEmployee friendly atmosphere within tier 2 technology service companies

    ConsNot industry standard salary, too much of influence from Chennai, India which is politically motivated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould correct faulty appraisal process, should create more band within a designation level, salary increment should not be tied with designation, encourage senior resources to do technical work rather than just people and resource management, top heavy organization - too many senior resources who has no work, thousands miles away from technology but paid heavily because of designations negatively impacting company's profitability and resisting the growth of the talented junior resources. A lot of correction is required to sustain the growth story.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Normal IT service company to work

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGood benefits, average salary but can be negotiated, have many projects, growing.

    ConsLot of regionalism and politics, less opportunities for promotions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove performance management/appraisal system, it should not be person dependent and feedback should be obtained at frequent basis not only at end of appraisal cycle, managers misuse this and decide according to scenario at the end of cycle.

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