It was great 'til they told me they had no more work for me!

Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Ann Arbor, MI

I worked at Mahindra as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThey're working on exciting products,

ConsThey don't believe in the expertise of new employees. They seem to be hired just to plow thru the work and not valued for their opinions or expertise.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't put all your faith in one person, there are many employees with varying backgrounds that bring a lot of experience to the table.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work!

ProsFreedom to think and even implement. Hands on experience and conducive environment.

Cons1. HR are bit noncompetitive. Any one with little bit rationality can bang them down, even mid level HR.

2. A proper system has to formed to tap the talent at correct area with proper training.
