    Pros

    The company is ok I suppose, have insurance and some PTO.

    Cons

    Very low pay scale. I dont get the impression that Cyient is interested in keeping people around that can help give the company work quality a good reputation.
    Overall, this is still just another contracting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the compensation were in-line with the current contract rates, then I would consider staying; but I'm not interested in giving work away.

    Pros

    Company allows for flexibility in schedule and also allows remote work opportunities.

    Cons

    No real training is provided. You, basically have to figure it out on your own. Just because you get an above average performance appraisal and take on additional responsibilities, don't expect to be rewarded in raises or promotions. Generally, promotions are based on "who you know" not "what you know or have proven that you can do". Salaries are not structured and managers are allowed to "create" whatever positions they want and decide pay based on nothing. HR department is no help in providing explanation for how raises are determined or why certain benefits only go to certain employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the structure of this company. Create a salary scale where raises and salaries are based on education, experience, and performance instead of allowing individual managers to decide. Also, there is a need for uniform job titles and descriptions across all units. Administrative staff in our office has job titles that are not at other offices and the people who have the exact (if not less) responsibilities are paid more simply because they are given a different title.

    I have been working at Cyient full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When you run out of work, or get your work done ahead of schedule, they don't give you anything extra to do. So you can spend a lot of time surfing the web! Most co-workers are friendly and will try to help you in any way they can. Very laid-back environment.

    Cons

    Very little if any raises, I have worked here over five years and only make about 6% more than I did 5 years ago. This year we were told we'd get 1.5% raises MAXIMUM. I got 0% and nobody will tel me why I'm being punished. I do a lot more than I am supposed to. Also took many classes that were suggested by management. I guess none of that counts. Disgusting. The "system" they use to evaluate your performance is rigged to make you look bad. "Goals" and "expectations" are vague, and the only communication is via email. They have too much upper, elite management that we never see, but THEY all seem happy and well paid. Management does EVERYTHING via email, you hardly ever see them or talk to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "If you don't like it here, don't let the door hit your backside on the way out!" seems to be your official slogan. Yet you send out emails saying that employee retention is a problem.... yet you give out 0% raises to some of the smartest and most productive employees. So exactly HOW are you trying to retain people? If you have something important to tell us, don't just send out an email. Face-to-face would be much more effective.

    Pros

    Flex time (work with customer) good entry level position. Good mix of people.

    Cons

    No accountability in HR department. Pay checks consistently incorrect. Management is only a title. Some unprofessional employees in a small (100-200 person office area)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to be more involved in workplace and just have the management title. HR department needs a major overhaul.
