    Pros

    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 It looked outdated.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.

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - global presence
    - good client roster including many Fortune 500 companies
    - "Practice" approach to building competency
    - CMMI Level 5 capability

    Cons

    - Compensation
    - Insufficient allocation of resources towards competency building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Lose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.
