    Mirafra Inc. is the worst service company to work for in US.

    I worked at Mirafra Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In India, there are some good things about this company but in US, there are none.

    Cons

    In US, this company operates under the name of Mirafra Inc. This review is about Mirafra Inc. Like any other service company, Mirafra Inc.hires and then sends on client location for work.

    1. This company doesn't have any admin or HR or sales person in US. Everything is handled from India by people who don't have any idea about how things work in US. These people don't mind annoying employees even if it saves them 50$.

    2. When they hire you they boast of all big companies as their clients in US. But once you join them and are sent to US, real picture turns out to be hell. They don't have any good clients in US. Contracts are for smaller duration. So every six months you will be on move. They will force you to move from one state to another without paying proper relocation amount. Employee ends up paying up good part of relocation money from his pocket.

    3. Every now and then, they will make you sign penalty bonds. Every half-year, there will be some new bond to sign and each bond mentions employee will be penalized this much $$$ if certain conditions are not met.

    4. Appraisals are not regular and not up to mark. You need to keep reminding them about appraisals but they try to ignore it as possible as they can. If not salary, one thing that surely increases with time in Mirafra is your Blood Pressure.

    5. Medical policy is worst. No dental insurance. Most of medical insurance premium is paid by employees.

    6. Last but not least, if you resign, HR comes up with all kind of penalties (known: signed bonds and unknown: whatever they like) you need to pay to Mirafra Inc. They make sure to extract as much money from you as possible once you resign. You need to follow them for months to get relieving documents.

    Even Wipro has much better policies and clients than this company. Mirafra Inc. wants to compete with SmartPlay in US. I better tell them stop dreaming. You can't compete with SmartPlay because of their policies, pay and clients. Advice for people who consider Mirafra Inc.: Don't join them. They will turn your US dream into your life's worst nightmare. In terms of treatment to employees, Mirafra Inc. has more of grocery store culture than today's corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to change Company policies and its attitude towards employees if Company wants to retain its talent in US. If person resigns, let relieving process be graceful than torture sessions.

    I have been working at Mirafra Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good in short term for low experienced engineers.
    you can demand for high salary before joining.
    if you are lucky enough not to go to qualcomm.

    Cons

    Bad higher management.
    Hikes not predictable, depends on mood of higher management.
    Negotiate before joining, afterwards hikes are minimal or frozen
    One negative feedback from a demanding client, then your hikes are gone for next 2 years.
    Most people leave with-in one year.
    H1B is just a carrot to retain employees.
    They just make you sign the bonds and file H1b for very few guys, and later tell others not selected in lottery.
    Many guys with valid H1B spending 2 years without travelling.
    Management doesn't care to retain unless you resign.
    very little interaction from management.
    70% employees sent to qualcomm, which is next to hell for contractors engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be assertive in retaining employees.
    Don't give false hopes that you will file H1B.
    Chart out plans for employee skill development.
    plan out growth visibility for employees, than just focusing on billing from customers.

    I worked at Mirafra Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fantastic team to work with, no other service provider have such work force. I learned a lot during my short stint at mirafra
    Pays quite well
    Gives great hikes for people who do well
    Immune to ups and downs in the industry. They didn't layoff a single person for business reasons. They will lay you off if you perform bad consistently. So if you're not confident of yourself, don't join them - they are meant for the best folks, not for the dumb people.

    Cons

    I left Mirafra because they couldn't file my H1. I joined Smartplay believing their assurance that they would file my H1. Yes they have file but I'm yet to go. There are tons of guys like me who are sitting in india with H1 filed by Smartplay. But now I feel that Mirafra was truthful about their capabilities. None of their employees are sitting in india with a valid H1.
    Another problem i see is that they don't have too many ODCs.
    I would like to see some in house projects working on product ideas, though I know such a thing may not be easy in a service setup

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May be, get more ODCs and file more number of H1s, but it's always better to file less and make sure that everyone finally lands up in the US, unlike my current employer Smartplay.
