    I worked at Mastek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Please Note: Individual experience varies from project to project, it cannot be generalized in one review. This company recently demerged into two companies, Mastek LTD and Majesco. Majesco focuses on Insurance projects and this review is about projects in Majesco.

    Good exposure to development and SDLC processes.
    Decent salary and increments, won't complain.
    Good work is very well appreciated at company level.
    Excellent training department and infrastructure
    Good On site opportunities*.
    Casual clothes allowed on weekdays.
    Approval process for various entities like leave, reimbursement vouchers etc has been waived off. This was recently done as part of Mastek 4.0 initiative.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very poor in some projects, constantly. UK non insurance projects are far better (which are now under Mastek, not Majesco). There is a constant pressure on Asia Pac Projects, maybe because they are underbid wins.

    In Asia Pac. projects, you do get onsite "Opportunity" with time. Onsite benefits are peanuts considering the work load and what other IT companies offers as a standard. 12-13 hrs of work on regular basis and few weekends is considered normal at Onsite.

    Mastek/Majesco is not a company which focuses on current market technology too much. Some products and projects uses ages old technologies. Java developers beware, one of Mastek's core product for Asia Pac is based on java 1.4 with completely weird, sub-standard architecture and no documentation (not even proper code comments). Zero technology enhancement done over this since 2002 and management is least bother to look into it. Business analyst and solution architects have no idea about how this product works since there is no dedicated product team.

    Sales team makes unbelievable promises to customer, without even knowing if their product has those features or not. This significantly effects their estimates.

    Company management is going though some major changes in hierarchy, causing too much instability at lower levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the technologies used by this company, Mastek is an IT company which has to compete in market. Just because something works and sales team can sell it, doesn't mean it will work fine in long term.

    Management guys, please , just take some timeout from your sales, charts, meetings and look whats happening down here. Mastek used to be a technology company from what I heard, what happened to that. Now we just organizes sideshows on technology but never consider them for implementation.

    Please invest in IP and R&D. Hope, after the demerger at least Mastek will think about it.
