    To mine the potential within the company, existing talent needs to be valued (both in salary and role terms); otherwise there will be a 'revolving door' phenomenon costing the company talent and money

    Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Mahindra Satyam

    Pros

    I joined this company as fresher, it provided me all the training required to perform the job. Apart from the training the company also presented me with multiple challenges in executing different roles and responsibilities. I would say it was good educative and learning experience for me.

    Cons

    Though the career planning and promotions due to lack of proper competent management across the organization was not possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career Planning, Competent middle management staff, continuous communication about the events and course the organization is taking and the vision of the company in simple words
