    All that glitters is not gold!

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsI cannot think of any.

    ConsNo hikes. No promotions. No recognitions

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management thrives on the concept of 'Openness'.
    Recognize people for their contributions. At present, management follows strategy of "I take care of you and you take care of me...the others go to hell" policy. Promotions, rewards and recognitions are given not on merits, but on who bribes their managers the most.

    Have you heard of Halo effect in PMP. The entire middle management of Mindtree is filled up with developers who were promoted because they were good developers and now have zero management skills.

    Good people, bad policies, incompetence, regional bias

    Lead (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsA few good people to work for

    ConsIncompetent middle level managers
    Terrible salary structure
    No coordination between enabling functions
    HR irresponsible
    Biased towards select set of people
    Senior leaders lie
    Class values only talked about but not followed
    Incompetent people get quickly promoted due to X factor
    Huge egos for some but they still become leaders quickly
    Don't hesitate to play politics to push senior leaders personal agenda even if it costs someones career
    Funny appraisal methodology - incompetent people doing appraisals
    Senior leaders Prefer playing sports like golf and tennis rather than increasing sales
    Project managers make the team work 15-16 hrs even if the client is condescending
    Client is GOD, even if he is wrong.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the process of promoting project manager to general manager in 3-4 time frame. They are really incompetent.
    Fire project managers who go to any extent to satisfy the client needs. Many teams are suffering due to this.
    If you lose a few critical clients it will erode much of your business. Make sure to keep people happy in at least such accounts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company to work for during early stage of your career.

    Manager (Current Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsCompetitive compensation, healthy work environment, good company policies.

    ConsCareer growth is limited in IT division. Mindtree's size and growth is not comparable to it's major Indian and global competitors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrowth needs to be market driven and hence need to be more competitive. Probably SALES team need to be improved.

    No good

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsManagement keeps good level fo communication with employees

    ConsToo many people in support function - reducing overall utilization rate
    Message to support team - "you are there to help the billable employees"
    Nobody cares about onsite employees - keep billing as long you can
    No bench period. You have to get out of the country on the last day when your billing stops
    Training onsite employees - sorry cant do. learn on your own
    Expense reimbursement - receipts should go all the way to india before approval. Why give your money and beg them to give it back?
    Attend company meeting - yes mandatory, but cant lose billing. So work overtime to compensate time lost in company meeting
    health benefits - only 2 options - either you pay a lot for nothing, or you suffer because of no coverage
    salary - significant portion is variable pay, nice catch! Dont expect to get the variable component in this life
    problem with your computer - oh my god, the number of approvals required to replace a faulty component for an onsite employee is ridiculous

    Advice to Senior ManagementIsnt it a irony that you had to learn about employee's grievances in this forum? Wouldn't you have expected that the bloated HR/support structure to have found this out in their overpaid role?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
