    I have been working at NDS

    Pros

    1. Good Salary, bonus
    2. decent HR Policies.
    3. work life balance ( depends on the team )
    4. good canteen facilities , free food, snacks

    Cons

    1. technically outdated, using century old java version. no hope of learning further and high chances to degrading the personal technical background.
    2. management is very conservative to change.
    3.very old employees were treated royally.many of them promoted to senior positions. they are totally outdated/ .they are good in lobby, politics .
    3. need to shout for anything..spam the inbox. then only the things would move.
    4. there is no fair policy in promotions. normally the people in the good ranks with senior peoples will get promotions .
    5. the people good only in talking are treated good. people who never coded anything are holding the position as architect .
    6. after few years will become technically outdated , need to pass the rest of the life in NDS only. as no other company will respect this skill set.
    7. called as product company but working in service mode

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. instead of promoting the old employees bring technically talented people from outside
    2. do something to eliminate petty politics
    3. don't bring managers from service industry,

    I have been working at NDS

    Pros

    1. Good food and canteen facilities.
    2. Good work life balance if you are an manager and above
    3. Yearly Bonus out of Salary
    4.Leader in the Set Top box software, can learn lot about the domain
    5. good place to retire.

    Cons

    1. outdated java technology used. will forgot everything in java after working for a year in NDS
    2. the old employees were promoted too early. they are lagging badly on technical skills as well as managerial skills. working under them is quite difficult.
    3. politics on high end. only the people are friendly with managers and architects will get promoted. architects play a high role on promotions. they will deny promotion if the candidate found more talented when compared to them.
    4. there is no open policy and nothing stable at NDS. company management is worst.
    5. the old employees behavior to the juniors is very worst.
    5. after working in NDS for few years , the person will be outdated badly in the technical skills, no other company will take them. needless to say..they have to pass on their life in NDS only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. improve the technical background on the products. throw away the java 1.0 version. bring the latest technology
    2. dont entertain the old employees lagging on the technical skills. they are ruining the life of many talented peoples.
