    Not a good place for a learner and ambitious guy !

    SSE (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsPlace to sit and relax.
    Only from past 2 years some measures are taken to deliver training and improve quality.
    Good thing is it is acquired by Cisco, which will now clean up all lazy fellows within and give NDS a good future and hope.

    ConsBad place to learn, to be competitive.
    Bad environment to be proactively involved in latest technologies.
    Keeps rusted employees within harming the quality of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be on par with the managers in other IT companies and try to be competent than just ordering others to do work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a good place to be in

    SSE (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsFree snacks, literally that's the only good thing about this place. But this also won't be there from April 2012 onward.

    Cons1> They take people for core java development, calls for some nut breaking interviews. But when one will actually start with the work, one could find out how pathetic it is! One will end up changing only xmls. So you'll enter the company as a lion and will end up being a mule! Seriously. You may ask anyone.

    2> One's career will shrink with time. You'll learn nothing but how to change xmls and how to use IBM Clearcase and Clearquest.

    3> Management is is shallow in experience. Only in this company you will find people having 4-6 years of experience have become Team Leads! And, obviously, they lack managerial skills.

    4> Promotions are totally biased. People having lesser experience (be it overall or only NDS experience) and have done lesser amount of work might get promoted before an eligible candidate.

    5> Work life balance = 0. One must stay 'in office' for at least 40 hours a week even if you're done with your work and after that you might also end up working during the weekend at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice required to be given. Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
