    I have been working at Hexaware Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hexaware is an unsung IT services company with great people. There is a lot of flexibility that the company gives to employees to work, learn and grow. Hexaware is very strong in certain areas of IT services business, HCM, Campus Management etc. The new management has great drive to dream and make a great Hexaware.

    Cons

    Haven't seen cons as yet, however they have to focus on the niches where they are strong rather than trying to emulate a TCS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employee and customer focus, have a clear cut growth strategy and I am sure we are bound to grow.

    Pros

    flexible working hours, training,supporting teams,good for freshers

    Cons

    Dirty politics,no onsite,no salary hike and onsite opportunity only for those guys who are MINION. For ex: one person who is neither technical nor managerial but he has only a quality of buttering.He spends 5 years out of 7 years on onsite and still counting.
    Two years earlier they has a appraisal cycle of april to april but since 2012 they changed without informing to employee and now its become Aug to Aug. This year they have given appraisal in sept.

    I have been working at Hexaware Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If 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).

    Cons

    Hexaware 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 ManagementAdvice

    They 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.

    I worked at Hexaware Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros: Location, Infrastructure, Profile, Projects, People
    Let me explain each of the points.

    Location: This is relative to where you stay. I travel to mahape from CST, which is 39 kms. But, mahape is well connected compare to andheri, mindspace malad, and some weird places in Thane.
    I mean, I use to travel from CST to Thane, and Thane to Ghansoli. At Ghansoli, there use to be Auto rickshaw queue which would have share a auto service and drop me to MBP gate for Rs. 10. (There would be another 500 meters walk to company gate from there, but never mind) That's convenient than searching Auto ric at anderi for SEEPZ. If you ever travel to SEEPZ in peak hours, you would know, what I meant.

    Infrastructure: Compare to other mid-tier company, infrastructure seems to be good at Mumbai facility (Chennai, Pune, no idea). They have 3 building in Mhape, good amount of parking, greenery, conference rooms decently equip with WORKING projector, polycom, two large space canteen at terrace of building, food seems to be decent, esp in Building 152.

    Company Profile: It mid-size company, it has clients in financial service (asset management, index management, insurance) , travel, health care. It has few accounts (100+ people for one client) like iSOS, E&Y, Jet Airways to name few. Technology range in JAVA, .NET, BI, EagleData, legacy (MainFrame, VB 6, PB, Delphi, Coldfusion, etc). Technology front, its overall better mix of everything, and not as spread out as TCS or Infy. Mainly, like any other 5000+ company, major revenue comes from maintenance, and this company doesn't put exception. It doesn't have guts for venturing in new areas, high risk fixed bid projects.Whatever is current business model they have, it's working for them. If you join the company, it most like, you would be in maintenance project, very few greenfield projects.

    Projects: This is mid size company, there are certain high pressure projects and many relax maintenance project. Inquire from the acquaints(friends, distance relative, etc.) who are working in the company to know, if account which you are joining is high pressure or relax. High pressure account have fix deadlines, and hence need to work 10+ hours a day plus Saturday and Sunday for a month stretch.

    HR Policy and perks: At my time, this company has less variable pay (mostly, below 5-10% for developers base on level) and is paid out very QUARTERLY. Better than other companies which roll out yearly. Plus, variable pay is base on company and market, so chances are you get full (unless, recession is going on). Inquire your with HR, as HR policies always changes with time. There is allowance for second swift, and plus you can claim reimbursement for cabs, food if you do late sitting. Reimbursement depends on your manager, he is the one you have to approve it, but, there is provision in HR policy.

    People: It's my opinion, as most interaction where base on the group which I was working with, and not with each and every one in company, remember, its 5000+ people company) I found people to be generally good, curtsied, help you in most situations (not every!!!), and fair amount of intellectual being.

    Cons

    Now, it part for cons.
    Look, no company is perfect. It's you are able to adjust and compromise with the cons of the company, you would find the perfect match in terms of career.

    Infrastructure, HR policy, personal growth, Onsite opportunity

    Infrastructure: Here, the bad part of Infrastructure. Number of conference rooms is not adequate, need to use manager cabins for flash meetings, booking for conf. room was manual from reception, no booking management system, interiors of building 152 was better compare to building 3. Esp. chairs in building 3 are old and shaky.
    Networking guys (STG) have all weirdo policy with half of the internet blocked. For admin rights, there is long procedure, for laptop acquisition, 2 months wait, to get one server machine, long fight, you get me, right?

    HR Policy: At my time, there was just 5 public holiday compare to standard 10, plus 24 leaves. 3 months notice period and if you relieve early (again, relieving early depends on your manager), you need to pay for the rest of period as basic of your salary. (again, notice payout depends on your manager, you can relieve early for free too!). HR never interacts except for joining and appraisal. Mine, first appraisal happen after 1 and half year instead of as promise one year on joining.
    Also, don't be fool with the designation, there they have weirdo designation irrespective to role you play. E.g. Project Manager would have Sr.Technical Architect designation, but have no gyaan w.r.t. technology.

    Personal growth: Personal growth depends upon your performance and company performance. Here, if you are performing, but company isn't, you won't grow much high. It's a mid-size company, and much of the things is settle over here, so, things may not change as you wish after joining. Live with it. It means, standard rules apply like promotion every (2-3 year), somewhere around 7-10% increment ...

    Onsite opportunity: If you are searching for onsite, better, ask the PM in interview, as every project doesn't have onsite opportunity and certain people stick in onsite like glue and your chance are dime. Only few project have shuffle policy, where everyone gets the chance.

    But with all the Cons, let me summarize this. Here in this company, there are good amount of people in Hexaware, which have stayed within the company for 5+ year plus, and there are other like me, which stayed just 2 year. (I switch for my personal reason, not because of company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, keep your stake high, as Barring Asia people would be complying you for the superlative growth in current market and economy.
    As for the employee welfare, continue to do whatever you are going currently, as senior management aren't going to heed GlassDoor review advises.
