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

    Advice to Management

    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

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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!
