    Pros

    A good group of employees. Ability to travel to other offices across the globe. Free snacks, coffee and tea are provided at the US offices. Inter network links to tutorials for the latest software. Most managers are very approachable to discuss issues that arise.

    Cons

    Often a heavy work load with tight deadlines. You must be willing to work after hours during evenings and weekends when needed. Due to the global structure of the company the overtime can impact local holidays.

    Pros

    We have won large deals,with new technology platforms,the learning to manage and deliver this as per client expectations is really very challenging. Quality and time lines become very important and clients are as usual very demanding.

    Cons

    We need to have a focused or dedicated resource manager to take care of the capacity planning for the Business Unit any spikes should trigger an alert to start the staffing exercise,else we start to get hit on the work volumes and eventually the quality becomes to suffer.

    Pros

    Managers are conducting and providing the Quality ratings for the projects which are being executed monthly to the internal review teams. This is a very tight process and all the managers follow this SOP.

    Cons

    This system needs to be strengthened as at times there are subjective calls being taken which can get the ratings lower also i see some managers are more generous than the others. Sometimes the specs received from the clients are not very clear in the initial stages, we should not be blamed and our ratings should not get affected.

    Pros

    Have been working as a writer for the last 4 years, the projects are very intense with good amount of learning and exposure,nobody will stop you from getting your hands off the fire. You can reach out for help as long as it is genuine.

    Cons

    High time, one should specialize in specific areas,Oncology is now a growing field,would want Indegene to foster growth for individuals to also become SME's in particular areas of Interest. These SME's can later train new comers. an Not everybody would want to take a people management role,would rater become an SME.

    Pros

    I joined as a fresher 3 yrs back, good environment, lots to learn, there is a high threshold of expectation. In this place, we really are respected if you have good understanding of the domain, internal process etc. Handling multiple accounts, meeting timelines becomes a part of your daily life.

    Cons

    My manager is brilliant in her domain, but is very strict, we have to give a week's advance if we need to apply for leave or apply for WFH. She expects 100% perfection in all deliverable’s and is a no-nonsense person.

    Pros

    During the initial training,i really struggled to cope up,lots of things started hitting me,though i passed out from a top B-school . The first 3 months really drained me out,though there is lots to learn and unlearn

    Cons

    The trainers are really very strict and have a very tall yard stick. I feel we need to loosen up a little and decrease the pace.

    Pros

    On the IT side there are couple of products but only pharma & health care focused.

    Cons

    The timelines given to the development team should really be re-looked. Also we need to have internal movement between the services and product development team with a defined time frame for the movement.

    Advice to Management

    Internal Movement really needs to be re-looked and should be flexible. Also we need to have a larger bench divided for both .net & java skills to meet sudden timelines.
