    Pros

    Opportunities - Multiple opportunities available.
    Employee Satisfaction - Salary and work culture
    Work culture - Flexible and open

    Cons

    Merging with big companies - Not sure how will it turn out in a longer run.
    Sometimes career path is not structured and not well planned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career plans can be more structured for employees. Senior management can be more transparent to employees to help them have more clarity on company's and business future endeavors and opportunities.

    Listen to your employees more and they will be more productive. They focus on billing more than anything else.

    I worked at MphasiS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good for new graduate without industry knowledge and people with basic technical knowledge

    Cons

    Not credited your job, politic, favoritism to native Indian, race issue, unprofessional, lack of good leadership, lies, employees are threaten to get fired if you don't follow manager desire to show good report during quarterly meeting, unequal paid, not skilled environment. Low paid..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the right resource to the right position base on their skills and experience and not some jerks and in laws or family members. Management lies all the time. If you work in USA your manager is your only gateway to talk to people on the top or to make your voice heard. Of course since you don't speak Indies your job and achievements will be the manager because he reports for you and rates you. Never show up to work and very arrogant.

    As you should know this company is very selective on who to place and where to place people. Mangers are promoted based on the time they spent working in this company and not on their true value. Be good with your manager and say YES SIR to them and you will be manager still don't forget to say YES SIR. Matter fact this company also allows all kind of people to work for them. Racist, unqualified, people who gets paid for you to do their job... All kind of behaviors. It seems that they only want people they can control and if you ever dare to challenge them they will start conspiracy on you.

    I got threaten to be fired if I don't perform on what the manager wants by the end of the quarter because he must submit report to show your work that he will of course define as his. No matter what you do they use you as a slave at this company.

    I enjoyed working with some good people like the clients but Mohasis itself is just bunch of liars specially if you are not Indian to understand their minds. Of couple other sell out people that work as watchdog so that manager can apply less burden and threats on them.

    Thanks I realized this soon and got me a better company to apply my skills and get better pay.

    I do not recommend this company to any skilled person unless you can find a job right away. This company is a joke.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, management is good. Onsite opportunities are there but depend on the projects. Average hike is 4-5% every year.

    Cons

    After it moved to HP, there are many changes in policies some of which are not good like introduction of variable pay.

    Pros

    A good place to learn new technology....nothing more

    Cons

    Working overtime without pay, Management continually lying to employees, NO BONUS, RAISES, OR PROMOTION for worthy employees. NO recognition for employees working their rump off if they don't agree with office managements childish office politics. One person being assigned the job of 5 people with the expectations of it being accurately completed within a very small window of time.....REALLY??!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue and realize that NO ONE likes working with you. Your childish office politics are driving anyone with common sense to find much better jobs elsewhere in which they are accurately suited for. Your evil, manipulating ways of hiring and promoting people that speak the same language as you, that are from the same state as you, and your ordering employees to participate in the same weekend/after office activities as you are bringing this company to ruin and shame. Get over yourself and show some respect for other people!

    Pros

    - Mphasis was a fresh & bubbly place to work in. Still is.
    - Work culture is pretty good
    - Has a lot of potential to raise itself into the big league

    Cons

    - Lacks the leverage of the big companies
    - The HP takeover created a lot of chaos & parallel power structures
    - Pay is below par of the big companies
    - Attracting top talent seems to be a problem
    - Getting sustainable big projects is now a problem. Instead most engagements now seem to be the TNM kind of resource sharing
