    Pros

    Great people and the company leadership genuinely care about the overall well-being of the employees.

    Cons

    Some areas of the business are better run than others so the culture is not yet consistent across all practices. Some areas are still dealing with transitional pain from acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make leadership changes where needed to ensure the core values and work culture thrive across all practice areas.

    OnSIte Opportunities if working on ERP technologies both long term and short term sponsorship avail. GC sponsorship avail if you wish you stay for 5-6 years wait for getting GC in same company.

    Cons

    No Hikes , Once you hired that's your final salary for at-least 5 years. No HR when you are onsite. they don't even care to know you as you are on client location. Worst Benefits in US for consulting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some HR and employee relationship building exercise, care to pay to the employee. Dont just think about client Billing.

    Pros

    Getting Paid. Laxed Rules. New Company. Telecommuting. Nice
    Overall this is a good company to work for. They give you access to additional resources to help further your career. More than I can say for anyone else.

    Cons

    HR. This company has the worst HR in the world! The web portal is a nightmare and you can not have your company email on your phone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, keep doing what you are doing. You are not doing the worst.

    I worked at NTT DATA Americas

    Pros

    You get a salary.
    Cannot think of anything else worth writing here.

    Cons

    Management is mostly useless, has no actual management training, doesn't communicate with its staff, makes huge promises but never delivers, and its all about them and nothing about you.
    NTT DATA Americas should just be called Keane again because its the same management, with the same level of cheapness, and the same treatment of its employees like cattle.

    NTT DATA recently switched to a high deductible health plan so that management could keep more money, and the employees were forced to pay a lot more per month for medical, plus if they got sick before they had saved enough of their huge deductible, they would just have to pay it all out of pocket. What a great way to thank their employees.

    NTT DATA keeps their hard working and loyal employees on the bench for only 2 weeks before removing their salary, and 2 weeks later firing them. Unlike its competition that allows employees to stay on the bench for at least 3 months with full salary and benefits. This is just one example of how little they care about their employees, and how much they care about keeping me money for themselves.

    NTT DATA puts people with no management skills and no people skills in management roles, and when their teams don't produce or become unhappy , they fire the employees and not the manager. They also do not then take the manager to teach them the correct way to deal with humans, they just leave the problem and let it continue.

    NTT DATA publicly states that they are investing in a certain technology segment, but internal doesn't actually do that investment. So that technology segment becomes the company's weak point.

    Reviews at NTT DATA are mostly a joke. No matter how hard you work and how above and beyond you go, your manager will always cut your rating down to "meets expectations" so that they don't have to pay you a good bonus or put you up for a salary increase.

    Employees who complain to HR about these kinds of things get nowhere as HR sides with management and does;t really look into your complaints, and downplays your complaint as "not really a big deal".

    You would be advised to stay away from NTT DATA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being Keane and start being a new company. Care about your employees. Listen to your employees when they tell you things are wrong. Stop putting non-managers in management roles. Stop managers who only reward people who suck up to them.
    Happy employees will go way above and beyond for you, but if you treat them like used underwear and put them under managers with no skills who treat them badly, they will slowly but surely become disillusioned.

    Pros

    Let you stay on with the company once the purchase your current employers services

    Cons

    Only will have job for short time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to purchase BPO Services make sure that you have enough business so that you do not have to lay off people who have been with company for long periods of time.
