Pros

Before listing the pros, I would like to mention that March-2014 firings were rolled back. All employees are called back and most of them joined. The sudden let-go happened because AIS lost a big client and maintaining 25 people on bench was tough. It was heart breaking and painful for everyone. But as soon as AIS got the vendor, they called back all the employees and some of them got hikes in salaries too.

Pros -
1 - Work on new and upcoming technologies.
2 - Good salary and free lunch.
3 - WFH option
4 - Everyone is knowledgeable.
5 - Promotes new technologies.

Cons

1 - Did some firing on short notice in past.
2 - HR needs to improve the response time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Above everything - Keep a good exit process. Lot of employee felt bad the way they have been told that no need to come from next day and email ids will be blocked.

Suggestions -
1 - Now the company is growing so AIS should have a Project Management Group. This group does evaluation of the project at every step on a periodic basis.
2 - Risk management - Keep the backup plan ready.
3 - Provide quarterly updates to the employees that how the organization is doing.
4 - Take up the maintenance projects also.
5 - Take up KPO projects also and hire people with simple computer skills. These projects may not generate lot of revenue but these projects runs for year after year and is a continuous source of income.

    You never know which project goes down and which resource is thrown out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep enough backup funds so that you can feed your employees for at least 6 months since your projects are very uncertain

    Pros

    Don't see any pros as there won't except the flexible Work from Home option.

    Cons

    It will be like political party manifesto . There will lot of promises but nothing will be materialized. This company is capable of handling 40-50 members only, but they overestimate themselves, hire people and suddenly they will fire them. The job security here is dam low. Company is single client dependent and there is no scope for other clients. Company don't have any process either in the project management or in people management. Least you talk about HR. If you keep them any other company , they not eligible for reception job too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know yourself better. Don't overestimate , hire extensively and fire them which puts their families in doll-drum. You better know that there are hundred's of companies apart from Microsoft and know that other employees are highly knowledgeable. so pay due respect to others too.
