    Overall good company to stay till retirement if you learn a little buttering

    Module Lead (Former Employee)
    Noida (India)

    Pros1. Work delivery given importance than work timings
    2. Employee is recognised and rewarded
    3. Less management politics
    4. Good yearly increments
    5. Employees encouraged to explore new technologies

    Cons1. Very poor HR. HR works only for management but not for employees
    2. Very very less holidays. Only IT company with no holiday on Christmas
    3. More family oriented, less professional
    4. Few managers need ego massaging from sub - ordinates. Better leave company if you are under such leads.
    5. No onsite opportunities. Management says they don't believe in maintaining onsite strength. ......very strange

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR and backend teams are for taking care of employees and for building good relations between employees and management, not for buttering or flattering the management for their own survival. Please improve.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
