    Current Employee - Pre-Sales in New York, NY

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros – Opportunity to take on new positions (only for Indians)
    If an employee (is an Indian) and project ends, they can be picked up by another account without being fired

    Cons

    Cons – Management doesn't communicate well - huge veil of secrecy between India and US
    Some unethical practices - particularly use of sleezy outsourced recruiters that will promise you anything and tell you anything to get you to sign on
    Employee gets 'dropped' into positions without any mentoring or training
    Peers and management favor others with Indian heritage and believe they're smarter than other cultures - baboons in suits
    Management makes a lot of unrealistic promises to customers then expects front-line employees to figure it out on their own
    Indian management throws other employees under bus to make themselves look good
    Not a lot of teaming or collaboration to meet common goals - employees try to take credit for others contributions while going to great lengths to fingure out how to do as little as possible
    Onsite employees outside of India are completely disconnected from the company - which is mainly in India
    Training and events all held on IST timezone - no attempt to support other countries or timezones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior Management – If your serious about breaking into the US market then you need to ensure Indian employees who are customer facing in the US adapt their business practices to be consistent with American practices. Also need to treat employees that are non-Indian the same as Indian employees - at very least don't appear so blatantly racist.

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to start your career. Initial growth is very good. If you are lucky and end up in a great project, your career will really take off..

    Cons

    Heavy middle level management, lower than standards salary growth. Growth becomes lethargic once yo reach a certain level. People without connections may not grow as quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the above cons.
