Overall a nice place to work and settle down

Program Manager II (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

ProsGood work culture. Good people and nice policies.

ConsIt takes long time to establish yourself. i.e. to get promotions or decent ratings. they look for consistency and that means you got to be in the company for atleast 3, 4 years before you would get a good rating and thereby good increment and promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementIts dampening for people who despite performing well in initial year(s), do not get good rating because the consistency factor cannot be there. This de-motivates people who are performing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
