    Pros

    Office Culture is good in terms of work environment.
    They take good care of employees. You have a right balance of work and fun. This is an Indian company and they celebrate Indianess. Almost all the festivals(some internationa too) are celebrated in one way or the other. Especially the International Men's Day, Children's Day, Id, Basant Pachmi, Christmas etc.

    Cons

    No training for work load management. No help from immediate boss for the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to instill behavior of continuous improvement for continuous growth.

    Pros

    Please don't join this company.

    Cons

    They ll say Product Development but you(Engineers) ll do Support and Data Entry Jobs. Low Pay for Work we do.. only 3 LPA for freshers.. They ll only take from good colleges like SRM, Sastra, Amrita, RMK,Bannari Amman, Kumaraguru, Kongu, Sairam College, Ramakrishna etc..

    They ll take good students and those ll do Data Entry and documentation job. They wont get on site very quickly. They ll get more work but they ll pay very less...

    Other Product company like Aricent, Informatica, Zoho etc ll provide 'Free Cab Facility' during 9 to 6 times but this company ll get about 2000 Rs for Cab itself. This company wont provide extra work late sit salary. No process ll be followed. This company says they are provided discounted lunch i.e. for 24 Rs tat doesn't worth at all..No non veg or egg in the lunch.. Other companies ll provide 'free lunch' -They ll get from 3 star hotel daily. In this company they ll give contract to local people. Those ppl ll use low cost vegetables. Worst lunch...Low cost snacks ll be provided...
    Company is earning much but no people is earning...Diwali Gift is Flask for drinking tea during late sits...No people welfare..That is why company peoples are leaving from Newgen... If it continues no one ll stay in this company.....
    Even they don't change the company paint color. Always we have to wear formals...No product ll make us to wear formals.. Dont join...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the Work Culture.. Respect the people more than the products..

    Pros

    There is no fixed define KRA for your work.
    For a particular project, you might be a developer, as well as a Business Analyst, as well as a Tester, and sometimes may act as a Project Manager.
    People have to be proactive to actually learn things from this Company.

    Cons

    Resource Utilization is not optimum or should be as a company of similar stature.
    Internal Politics is too much.
    An experienced person from market is considered as a fresher by those who have been in the Company for quite a long time.
    Timings are stringent. 9.5 hours daily without fail.
    Increments used to be great, but not anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper On Job Training should be given.

    And Employees should be paid as per their KRAs not as per expectations.
