    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pros – Opportunity to take on new positions (only for Indians) If an employee (is an Indian) and project ends, they can be picked up by another account without being fired

    Cons

    Cons – Management doesn't communicate well - huge veil of secrecy between India and US Some unethical practices - particularly use of sleezy outsourced recruiters that will promise you anything and tell you anything to get you to sign on Employee gets 'dropped' into positions without any mentoring or training Peers and management favor others with Indian heritage and believe they're smarter than other cultures - baboons in suits Management makes a lot of unrealistic promises to customers then expects front-line employees to figure it out on their own Indian management throws other employees under bus to make themselves look good Not a lot of teaming or collaboration to meet common goals - employees try to take credit for others contributions while going to great lengths to fingure out how to do as little as possible Onsite employees outside of India are completely disconnected from the company - which is mainly in India Training and events all held on IST timezone - no attempt to support other countries or timezones

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Senior Management – If your serious about breaking into the US market then you need to ensure Indian employees who are customer facing in the US adapt their business practices to be consistent with American practices. Also need to treat employees that are non-Indian the same as Indian employees - at very least don't appear so blatantly racist.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Mahindra Satyam full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A significant talent drought leads to opportunities for even the most mediocre talents.

    Cons

    Very little and very unstable existing business. Management mantra seems to be self-belief will deliver results - this faith based vision is more apt for the 80s, not the modern business environment. Terrible investment decisions in inorganic plays.

    Advice to Management

    Lose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Was one of the good offshore IT companies but with the exposure of issue by ex-ceo it appears very unsafe in present time to be with the company. Options may be better once a new company buys this and settles / revamps the organisation structure. Lots of good people are in a bad situation due to market conditions else many would have fled by now Expect things to improve in the near future so good times return to one of the leading offshore service provider. Wishing all the best for those who still continue to support Satyam Jai Hind

    Cons

    Uncertain future as its working capital is low

    Advice to Management

    recognize people better and groom them for higher levels

    Pros

    If you are starting in a new functional postion, you can learn the ropes of IT outsourcing here. Good place to start if as a Trainee in India. Very large company with considerable experience in all areas of IT.

    Cons

    Not the place for business consultants or people aspiring to be business consultants. Very hard to transition to a new role. Networking is difficult, opportunities to understand someone elses role and expertise are very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Feedback, very important to be constructive and two way.

    Pros

    Some exceptionally talented and nice people whose network is worth a stay of 6 months in this organization

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    The revenue opportunities are just reflective of the market. To sustain especially for a services company resource is the key.. Focus more on career management for the resources.
