    Pros

    Yes and that is Good office Environment !

    Cons

    YOU CANNOT LEARN ANYTHING HERE and have no market value if you are looking to shift job from this company.
    The job revolves around copy and paste, that's it!.They give the designation of Engineers to whoo new joiners / Experience and give them "Data entry/Reporting activities".It can even be performed by a "12th " grade school passed out.
    INDIA 's operations are just for supporting (Data Entry) foreign clients
    The don't care about employees or their concerns.Night shifts are worst.
    very low salary compared to market standards ,Unwanted deductions. 3 months notice period.

    Too much of BUILD UP for the job being done.

    Advice to Management

    Resource utilization is very poor.Try to fit talent accordingly and please you know what's being done here so don't behave or give a hype like you are doing some rocket science deal!

    Pros

    You can leave anytime. Nobody forces you to work here.
    I am compelled to write a review after reading all the others. HR never read any of this anyway.

    Cons

    In the beginning there is a culture, where the manager's job is to put on a good reputation to the people outside and hire them. And that's the end. Once you are an employee, you are basically, on your own. The seniors will have 101 excuses why not to help you and why you are a trouble and should leave the company. The person who hired you met their goals and move on. You are just a number.

    Management level are very busy people. Doing very important job, which is playing politics to make sure they keep their reign. I have never been to any company more political and unwilling to learn as this one.

    Almost all managers and directors, thankfully not all, are clueless on how to manage without using dishonesty and red tape control.

    Good people are leaving at an alarming rate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a consultant and design a job description for managers and directors. Don't design it yourself, we all know what kind of storybook will come out. Put some budget and get professional help.

    Pros

    A large company with ok benefits but frankly not too much good to say

    Cons

    Lets just say that the experience has been disappointing. We cannot make up on mind on what we need or want to do, we do not pay our bills on time which results in credits holds, and Milpitas management tries to bully emplotees and contractors and consistantly blames them for delays that are the direct result of senior management mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, I doubt like will change as the buddy system is too embedded. The Silicon Valley is not a third world country and we cannot treat our employees and contractors as though is was one.

    Pros

    Benefits and 401K are marginally good. Large company, so if I were to move, I could possibly just do a relocation.

    Cons

    Treated like garbage, no training provided, no direction, they say they take harassment seriously but after two formal complaints, nothing has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Organize. Motivate the team. Don't pass off a disarray of assignments and demand unrealistic deadlines.
