    I worked at Tech Mahindra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Seriously I cannot think of one!!

    Cons

    No work ethics
    Bad work culture, no professionalism
    If you are on bench, no one will ever help you get a project, you are on your own, even merit does not count
    Bad payer, no good hikes either
    People are made managers without any skill, merit
    The 'Jugaadh' rule rules
    Lot of politics within the team, if you are in good books of manager, all good will happen..or else you are doomed..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some fire fighting before this ship sinks..

    And quit giving employees Service Certificates with Typos ( I got my service certificate with a number quoted which was a bit more than my annual gross salary..when asked..it was the hike amount which got included BY MISTAKE!! Really MISTAKE??? ) and the amount was a mere 13K..if you cannot even give your employees this hike on letter..what can you give???

    HR ought to learn some lessons in Human resource management

    I worked at Tech Mahindra full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) Lot of client exposure.
    2) Good recognition (but doesn't necessarily means rewards!).
    3) Good onsite opportunities.

    Cons

    1) Very hectic schedule. I don't remember how many times I have worked beyond 12 in the night (in both of my projects during my stay here). Lot of weekend working.
    2) Even though I was NEVER rated below A / A+ (which means exceptional!) during 5 years of my stay, my salary was 6 lacs per annum at the end of 5 years. Others had even less!
    3) No opportunity to change your project if you don't like it.
    4) No much room or encouragement for innovative ideas.
    5) Most of the employees hired are average or below average, few are above average and very rarely you will find someone exceptional. With this situation, if you are a team leader, you are doomed!
    6) Too much cost cutting since 2009. No Diwali, New year or birthday gifts. Hikes were in single digits in the current year 2012. No paper towels in restrooms. Free filter coffee service has been stopped and its now priced at Rs. 5 for a MICRO cup.
    7) Strict attendance policy. A minute less than 8 hours logs a half-day absenteeism (however it can be approved by your supervisor, so need to be in good terms with your supervisor!).
    8) Heights of politics!!
    9) The single digit hike given in 2012 increased the variable pay. There was no change in the basic pay or special allowance!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
