    Choose your vendors carefully. I have faced hell lot of problems with your prime vendor, and I do not put that blame on you as you have tried to help me in all the possible way. But here after choose them wisely.

    Pros

    It's a small company so you can get to know all people pretty fast and can make the vital connection. One can move up pretty fast if they fit into the company culture.

    Cons

    Being a small company, if there are issues with the top/mid management people, one can suffer a lot due to alienation. what value few old timers bring to the table?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know who in the organization is adding real value to the bottom line and growth of the company. You have to infuse new local blood into the system.

    I have been working at KPIT Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very Few. If you are a client-side consultant, the work is okay. Most of the consultants are good coworkers. The health insurance isn't bad and the salary is pretty good.

    Some of the business sectors (Manufacturing, Energy and Auto) are doing okay and present good opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    There is a poor pipeline, so being stuck on the bench or fired for lack of clients is high probability. This is an "old boys club" so good luck getting promoted or getting a worthwhile bonus if you are not very high up or know one of the senior execs. The 401k and Roth options are pretty poor and are not matched (or, if you are grandfathered in, are matched only on 12/31 of the year if you are still employed). Be prepared to work long hours and weekends, but still only bill 40 hours per week. Be prepared to work extensively while on vacation. Lots of upper management is very bad at their job - they are clueless as to the business, accomplish little and collect paychecks. They pay little attention to employee or company needs, blaming employees for poorly contracted projects that they signed and giving employees large quantities of work with last minute deadlines even when they were aware of the work/deadlines weeks before telling the employees. (Ex: Learning about a "last minute" presentation due on Monday on Friday afternoon. Forwarded email was dated from over a week ago)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employee needs. Respect employees' times - do not force them to do work last minute when you are aware of it in advance. Hire competent VPs - a sales person does not make a good manager or Vice President...

    I worked at KPIT Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a fresher, this company is the best launch pad I have come across; but for a mid-level experienced professional--you may get stymied from the beginning.

    Cons

    --Typical tradition management approach with lots of favoritism and partiality.
    -- When comes to work appreciation you have to work more than 15 hrs work is required from your side to get recognition.
    -- No transparency in appraisal process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more open to the employees to discuss their interests rather than superimposing with your own hand picked responsibilities that will get assigned to the employee.
