    Business intelligence services at Hexaware(Mumbai)

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsIf you are a experienced professional and want to live a very peaceful and challenge less job life then join Hexaware [ Thats what i feel by looking around in BI department :) ].
    They provide good learning programs to the employees with the help of their internal Tutors and Skillpages(Educational service provider company).

    ConsHexaware is my corporate industry debut. I was hoping for at least a good technical work, but it is not as expected although it is true that never expect anything from anyone.

    There are very few good projects(in BI) which Hexaware works on from Mumbai premises.

    HR policy is very bad for trainees and freshers few reasons are.......

    1) 3 months training period is not counted in experience.
    2) They have not watched the working of their training partner (GTT) and i must tell you that it was a waste of time w.r.t. BI trainings.
    2) 3 years bond with bank guarantee (which is against the labor rule of India or other developed nations)
    3) No bonuses and missed time appraisals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should organize good employee engagement activities for freshers also.

    Please utilize a human mind for 9.15 hrs of mandatory working rather then wasting it on Internet surfing and Chatting. build someone in projects and not giving proper work then it becomes a jail kind of to sit on the chair for long working hours. I have a desire to give my 100 percent to my job but it is missing in current work culture. Develop your workforce by giving them a quality work.

    It is very hard for freshers to manage in the salary that is paid. Please make it at least at the level of other MNC's.

    You will develop a high knowledge degree but you ain't get a promotion. Bad for entrepreneurs.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat place to learn lots of things, you have que opportunity to start in some technologies, really good place to work for entry level. Constant training is aviable.

    ConsBenefits are just fine, no job security/Unexpected Employee termination. Salary is just average it doesn't represent your actual knowldege, there are favoritism for opportunities. its hard to get a promotion, you have to wait for the annual review. Bad work/life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSince Salary and benefits are not the best, job security should be there.
    The company tends to lose its high technical and Experienced employees since it doesnt take care of them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
