    I have been working at NTT DATA

    Pros

    Pockets of strong people who work hard to take care of you. If your assignment ends though watch out.

    Cons

    No knowledge in industry for NTT Data. Very difficult to sell yourself and your services without this. Everyone does what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing, brand recognition, big wins. Too often looking at bottom line instead of risk/reward and growth.

    I have been working at NTT DATA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A chance to see actual change occurring on an enterprise level, and for the better. If you like the sound of that, you'll have something good to look forward to each day.

    Cons

    A very difficult client, and a combination of startup and corporate mentality within the business side has made direction unclear, and a focus on laying blame instead of solving problems has been inherited from the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership could not be more divided. Everyone below the SDM level is utterly confused as to the direction of the company. Entire overnight restructuring with no explanation or warning is never a good thing to see multiple times a year, and with absolutely no advance warning. This fosters a sense of instability and misdirection - there's multiple people in the organization who not only cannot specify who they actually report to in a singular sense, but also have trouble accessing the myriad levels of support from NTTData corporate. An HR person who is not on site regularly, no raises unless you get an offer and threaten to leave, every promotion is a lateral move - these are signs of very poor respect for employees.

    I have been working at NTT DATA

    Pros

    If you are placed at a nice client site with a fun project then you will be happy with your day to day work. Company tries to recognize talent but they are constrained by bill rate and inability to provide project mobility.

    Cons

    Like a typical consulting company you will be limited in salary and growth opportunities by client placement. Make sure you negotiate well when you join before you get locked in with any immigration matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find ways to provide growth opportunities for your people.

    I have been working at NTT DATA

    Pros

    There's not really much good here. I work for a government client, the pay is mediocre, and the benefits are nothing exceptional.

    Cons

    The disconnect between employees and management is enormous. I've been working on site with the client for a month already, and still haven't been paid due to incompetency. All records of were somehow lost in the NTT Data personnel files, my paycheck was sent an address I never lived at, and somehow the profile created after the fact for me lists me as "Kyle." Strange, since I'm a woman, and have never been a Kyle.

    There is no corporate culture. In fact, I've only met two other NTT employees in my time as a contractor; one being the recruiter who contacted me in the first place, and the second being some unknown HR grunt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop doing everything that you currently do, and move in another direction. Like selling socks, or stylish cravats. Seriously, everything you do shows incompetence.

    I worked at NTT DATA

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexibility, paid time off, non-stressful work environment, non-micromanaging...When I worked there I had a great team lead who had my back, I appreciated that they don't come like that anymore.

    Cons

    Can't really say anything bad, they are one of the better contracting businesses out

    I worked at NTT DATA

    Pros

    - Most of my fellow employees were pleasant and easy to deal with
    - The interview process was easy and I heard back quickly
    - Decent job in the short term

    Cons

    - I worked on site and senior management was very distant from the concerns of their employees there. There was not a strong sense of community.

    - HR is impossible to work with. They take a very long time to deal with problems and are frequently dismissive and combative. If you have a serious issue crop up, you cannot count on them at all.

    - As with many contractors, there is very little loyalty to employees when a contract is or may be ending.
