    Pros

    Opportunity to grow into industry focused solutions and technologies. Emphasis on learning current tech skills and easy to collaborate with leaders.

    Cons

    Top management experienced losing principle talent to Happiest Minds and other competitors due to lack of support and new business revenues. Sales management allows seniority to dictate political clout on the team without any standardized engagement protocols or policy based on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Confusion with investments like telecom phone project created a loss of cohesion and unified company vision.

    I have been working at Mindtree full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The founders of Mindtree have a strict code of ethics and the company follows it to the letter. You get a to work for experience on a lot of different software technologies. The veterans are truly gifted people with thought processes out of this world - and are rewarded as such. The cumulative experience Mindtree has gathered by acquiring smaller specialized companies is vast.

    Cons

    bureaucracy, mediocre salaries, career progress stalls after couple of tiers, repetitive nature of work in some of the projects, mid-level managers are without much experience in people management.

    I worked at Mindtree

    Pros

    1) Good Work life balance
    2) Approaching to the senior leaders is relatively easy

    Cons

    1) Mindtree during it's Initial years was a very good company to work with. People getting hired that time was very talented and knowledgeble. But not any more.
    2) Lot of politics inside the company especially in the middle management.
    3)Very poor salary structure especially for the people who are old employees and loyal to the company.
    4)Once the old chairman left the investors lost faith in this organization. Also lot of internal politics came into picture especially in the middle management.
    5)Earlier company used to care about their employees,not any more.

    I have been working at Mindtree

    Pros

    Good Company for learning.
    Some of your concerns will be considered.

    Most of the people will compromise for many things like salary, promotions etc as they like and love company.

    Cons

    Very Very Very Poor and worst Middle Management.

    I recommend MindTree as best company when
    either your role is a project manager or above, other wise you should not play politic with middle management by praising them for their donkey jobs and talks.

    If you your role is less than a project manager think twice about stupid middle management and decide to join. Especially for Onsite and Chennai locations.

    Most of the middle managers are idiots and they feel that they are superiors and they talk like the are the gods ruling the company.
    Though senior management is good they wont focus on changing these middle managers.

    Many people leave MindTree not for better salary/ better oppertunity, most of the people will compromise for many things like salary, promotions etc as they like and love company. but finally because of the middle management they will MindTree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not only focusing on improving the company business, also please focus on middle management harrasements also so that, you reduce iteration.

    You can bring more and new business when you have best LEADERS not BOSSES.

    Try to understand the good peoples concerns while they are leaving and try to change the middile management or educate the middle management how to treat employees.

    In single sentence tell middle management to "Be as LEADER rather than as a BOSS"
