    Think Twice

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsIf you are not career oriented and if you would like to stay at your designated level then this company is for you. The company will provide you a stable job and keep loading you with work. The company will treat you like a family and ensure that you are well protected from dangers of growth.

    Conssalary revisions are megre and are purely to satisfy the obligation of appraisals, appreciations are far and few and promotions are but just a distant dream.

    Advice to Senior Managementyou equate the company to a phoenix and mention how the company have risen from ashes. make sure that you renumerate, recognize and reward the people who have made this happen. also please ensure that you stop the sham appraisals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Its a good company as far as benefits and starting pay but there is no room or motivation for improvement or promotion

    UNIX Administrator (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsThe people are really nice.

    ConsThe pay isn't great. There is no motivation for career advancement and their policies are a nightmare. Sometimes you are forced to fill out reports and things that don't pertain to the current job just to fill out a timesheet...

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your HR. Don't lock people out of certain systems for not filling out surveys. Have surveys that pertain to actual job and in the field work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Management doesn't Care about you, still Company's alive because of Dedicated and great technical manpower.

    Project Lead (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Prosa) Peers are good, don't expect a lot of goodness from senior management.

    b) Some level of transparency still exists. A lot of transparency existed in old Satyam.

    c) Very good Skilled & Intelligent employees around you, therefore there is opportunity to learn a lot of things.

    d) Learning Center in Satyam is very good and you get to learn a lot of free things, which you wont get to learn in any organization.

    Consa) Management (one level above you and all higher levels) don't care about you at all. What you are doing, whether you are satisfied, dissatisfied, your concerns etc.

    b) Apraisals is not satisfactory to some extent.

    c) You have to really be stricter and smarter and clever to get your dues and what you want from the higher ups.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to proactively get yourself more involved with the juniors rather than having them leave. Remember your job is to take care of both employees and the client......I think you have forgotten the employees totally. Get your act together before a lot of good skilled labor gets away.

    Good company, bad times.

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsAt its peak, it was one of the best Indian IT consulting firm to work for ...

    ConsShould have gotten rid of the name "Satyam" ... it will always bring the accounting scandal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the name "Satyam" - there is no brand value, except that the people dealing with customers have to be apologetic for something they didn't do and keep explaining the scandal. It's done - move on!
