    Pros

    On one hand it is a growing force in the IT Outsourcing industry. Has been showing good growth. Part of a good group of companies - The Mahindra Group.

    Cons

    Has just gone through a merger with Tech Mahindra. Need to overcome the bad fallout of the Satyam Scandal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should aggressively promote the brand.

    Pros

    Unique and more growth opportunities for new talent. Options to take higher role and management supports such initiatives.

    Cons

    Not a good pay master, management is more focused on investor's delight instead of associates. Cost cutting at all the corners instead of investment for long term sustainability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking into talent retention. Associates expect a lot from the new management on associate delight (including monitory benefits) but nothing much is happening. Company needs a lot of investment on associates, solutions and capability building.

    Chance to work in multiple projects.
    Organizational structure, which allows resources to grow horizontally as well as vertically.

    Cons

    my experience with HR after exiting was not satisfactory. I felt there is a need of more professionalism.
    Annual appraisals process is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvisation required in annual rating process. It looked outdated.

    Pros

    Company is very stable, there are lots of opportunities to work with great clients in various countries, Also once you have proven your worth and are in the eyes of the management, it is easier to carve your career path. You can switch between projects and take up new roles.

    Cons

    Even though there are opportunities, you need to be proactive and develop network to use the opportunity. Compensation varies on various factors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has a broad perspective but more empowerment of middle layer employees is needed.
