BTCI Pune

Technical Lead (B4) (Former Employee)
Pune (India)

Pros1) good salary. around 20% more than market salary(if you have negotiated during HR discussion)
2)Work from home option sometimes when you need
3) flexible work hour
4) year end bonus of 10% if you have got average and good rating

Cons1) Work pressure. similar type of work on daily basis -so no growth
2) Work from home does not mean you will be working less. This is the catch to provide you laptop and blackberry and burden you on work
3) No transparent process in Appraisal. so lobby/oiling works. so tjose who are well politically stay here for long term
4) No promotion . the role on which you have joined you will have to work on same role and no defined process to move to next level
5) Whatever a 2yr guy does in support even a 10 yr B4 will do same work and when rating is provided manager has lot of point to tell what you have done when a 2 yr guy is doing what u also are doing
6) no onsite. if u get a one/2 week onsite then it is a loss for you. as there is no per diem amount. whatever u spent at onsite they will provide the same amount once u provide the bill and same money u will get in 2 months.
7) any monetary claim amount is paid after a month or more(45 days around SLA time)
8) some manager who have joined 2-3 yr back does not want to switch job as they are getting paid very good salary and for them no work. just co-ordinate and bother the technical people

9) You can not escalate anything to HR as it looks like HR process is there just to recruit the people and have 2 days of induction
10) No internal position change as your current manager does not release you
11) firing at singapore center - so no job security
12) Some managers tries to bully you

Advice to Senior Management1)Define the exp level and promote the people to next role
2) set the objective and expectation of employee and work with them to grow rather than their carrer becoming stagnant here

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
