    Good Company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cordys full-time

    Pros

    company is well managed; HR practices are very good; excellent time-off policies; opportunity to get involved in all phases of software development; frequent visits by Dutch management to control software development processes in Hyderabad. It was my best career choice.

    Cons

    mid level management was not up to the mark; some incompetent employees were made architects and team leads; development managers had fixed mindsets and did a poor job with appraisal and bonus evaluation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to keep tabs on what happens in offshore locations; reduce mid level management and may be do more analysis before opening up offices in smaller towns.

    Pros

    Work culture, good pay, work life balance. Scope to learn in the first few months. Can put forward your ideas or inovations.

    Cons

    Not much development scope, recent acquistion by Opentext seems a threat to the Company. Management is too scared to make bold decisions which is reflected in your day to day activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourself clear with long term plans. Improve sales to sustain.

    Pros

    Advantage for working in a small company is that it increases the visibility of work that we do
