    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    salary 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 ManagementAdvice

    you 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.

    Pros

    The people are really nice.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get 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!
