    Pros

    The best reasons to work in Mindtree would obviously be the people-centric atmosphere where tremendous amount of importance is given to how an individual is being treated. Makes one feel valued. If required, your superiors would jump in to stand by you at any issue. The other thing is the diversity of work present and the scopes you get to work in.

    Cons

    Being such a big company, there are lot many employees on bench who fail to get tagged to a project for months. This is primarily due to the lack of resource management strategies which becomes detrimental for an employee in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should consider looking at the salary hikes that are offered on appraisal. A 4 rater who has given his heart out doesn't expect just a 2% more hike than an average 3 rater.

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

    Pros

    1. After struggling a lot, may be possible that you find a good project and learn
    2. If you find a good project then opportunities are there to grow yourself
    Don't remember any major pros that you can't find in any other organization.

    Cons

    1. Mindtree has system for employees. Every employee is allotted to particular PRACTICE which takes care of employee skills n project but no one cares of this system. Higher management of Practice plays with employee carrier and if you fight then they have authority to decrease your ratings , not to give worth projects to you.Every company has some politics and that it OK too but here maximum non qualified higher management people got monopoly to spoil carriers.
    2. Policies can be changed anytime. And even not in right direction. In last 3 months, they changed mandatory hours to 9.5hrs/day(and most of the strength are on bench) , made notice period to 3 months , promotion criteria(its changed depending on last 3yrs ratings and as you know if someone wants to start his new life then past will not make him to give a fresh start).
    3. For every promotion, they have certain exams to clear. So, if you have fought with management or doesn't have licking skills then I am afraid you can be stuck with same designation. I got stuck for 3 yrs and i know people who are stuck for even 6 yrs. Some part of exams are related to your daily work and I am sure you will remember you college days. Just think of one thing here, company doesn't have projects to give or doesn't have skillful work to give but still they expect us to clear the paper which is nowhere related to daily task. Ridiculous!
    4. Mindtree attrition rate last year was nearly about 24% (first among all indian MNCs) and this year I can see even more because of policies and no growth.
    5. Practice heads are more concern about the COE work but not for the real time projects. Projects ask for resources from practices but practices are rarely able to provide correct resources on time. So, if you want to work and grow then look for the project by your own , make networks and struggle a lot to find the right place for you. I got this understanding very late.
    6. HIKE :- better we don't talk abt this because you work hard or not, there wont be much difference in hike percentage. Its not dependent on your work but it depends on Practice revenue. Example, Me and my friends are from different practice. He was on bench fo 8 months from 12 months cycle and I was in project working hard/alone. keeping clients happy in all means but at the end of year I got 5% hike and my friend got 12% hike. Reason is "his practice revenue was more then my practice". Isn't it ridiculous?

    There are lot more to say on this but I think you got my point!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to give advice because you know the truth and never change it but if you really want a advice in terms of real growth then you need to have some bigger change or revolution. Think about it very carefully!
