    Worked with GEMS and then later got bought out by EDS, worked on several projects and internal projects. Part of a development team and integrated supply chain management and was successful in go live

    Cons

    Lay of whole technical team in SAP side and even quality side. They recruited more fresh graduates and experienced SAP professionals. The work atmosphere was not as laid back, there was lot of pressure trying to meet deadlines and milestones to achieve a successful go live implementation

    Advice to Management

    Management was all indians from the GEMS side and they didnt have good experience with dealing with close knit clients. I advice them to hire better mgt.

    Pros

    Not many. I liked my co-workers.

    Cons

    They micro manage all that you do, they are rigid and not flexible about your work-life balance, they scheduled poorly for their 24x7 call center and you had no life. If you were promoted, you had to work one year in that position before you were paid your new salary.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and listen to your employees.

    Pros

    worked with great people and on our account it felt like a family. We all worked together as a team to accomplish what we needed to for the client.

    Cons

    Put in a ton of hours and was on call 7x24. I preferred it more when HP didn't own the company and we were independent. With HP I felt like more of a number than a person.
