SAP Business Warehouse , BOBJ and HANA Cosultant

Consultant (Current Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood for people who are starting there careers.

Cons- HR , Travel , Associate Development , pretty much the entire policy making has one goal that is cut expenses at the expense of Associate.
- Poorly maintained Appraisal Cycle

Advice to Senior ManagementMake investments to reap benefits.Looking at PL sheets and cutting expenses won't make big profits.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
