    Pros

    1. If you're able to sustain the crappy work, politics and shrewdness then you "might" get an onsite opportunity, but trust me, that's very difficult considering the present status of the company.

    2. If you are joining as an enabler, like HR, Admin, Sales, trainer etc. you might have a good life here. Because I've seen these people the happiest here. The Engineers are always desperate to quit.

    Cons

    1. Strict shift compliance - linked to your shift allowance. Even a single minute of shift deviation can cost you money.

    2. No visibility. The company doesn't know how much work they're gonna have in the coming quarter / year to feed as many resources they have. Every week PMs beg the onsite coordinators / customers to send some work. Applicable to all of their customer's account.

    3. No job security. Since, they don't have visibility on work load, you'll be moved to bench / other teams very often. You must cope up every single day to prove your worth.

    4. They don't have billing reserves. I've seen people at Project Manager level, begging for billing hours from other teams, else they would be moved to bench. You can figure out the plight of guys at lower level. To avoid this scenario, PMs allocate very tight hours for execution, keeping huge reserves with them so that they can bill as and when they need. The executors have to work extra hours, without billing, to finish the tasks and keep their managers happy.

    5. Your life in this company will totally depend on your manager's happiness. He can refuse to recognise any good work done by you for no reason and you'll not have your say in anything. The appraisal system is just for the namesake.

    6. The type of work they do is far away from the real engineering. It may seem like you are designing a rocket but at the end, you would just be updating some excel sheets, creating word documents or updating some drawings.

    7. You might be offered a hiked salary of 15-20% but it's not worth the mental trauma and the sense of insecurity you'll have after joining this company.

    8. I'm repeating this again, because of it's importance - NO JOB SECURITY.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring engineers if you don't have the capability to provide them long term employment opportunities. Try to sustain the existing customer accounts.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, you can come in early and leave early. This depending on your team lead and he allows it of course.

    Cons

    Everything beside the pro. There is no structure. The only way not to get screwed over is if you have the right friends. Aka. Management.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be completely reformed. Blatant display of favoritism.

    Pros

    There were none. I can not think of any good things for this company.

    Cons

    The way retrenchments were handled was appalling. You would not treat any human being like they treated us. Work culture was horrendous. It was always the budgets, the bottom line. No consideration for the employee never any money for training. We would win work on our credentials and then have to send to India. The work would come back and have to be reworked with little time left before dead line. Worst company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your offices and mix with the employees and see how bad morale is!

    salary on time,on site opportunity,Frankly speaking all these pros are useless. there is huge loss if you join quest.

    Cons

    1. In interview ,interviewer will show big things about profile, like you have to design this ,you have design that,convince to customer,you have to design components of aero engine.but when you enter in the company you will understand,every thing told was crap.
    2.project managers,Technical managers are not taking any responsibilities.
    3.technical managers are not behaving properly to subordinates.
    4.every one is only concerned for billing ,billing and billing, they are least bothered about design.
    5.you have to pick up low quality tasks(i.e. task which contains only documentations ,spreadsheet population etc).
    6.Every this is completely non-sense.

    Pros

    Good exposure for a fresher from avg colleges.

    Cons

    Recruiters/TAT focus on salary negotiation during interview nothing else.

    Management is focussing on Micromanagement instead of Lean management to improve and cost cutting.

    Very unstable when it comes to job security and there is always a negative atmosphere around.

    Almost nill employee engagement.

    HR are down to earth but non competent

    Advice to Management

    Instead of making your employee leave the job and hiring from outside at a higher salary

    Why can't the company pay the deserving ones.

    You train them for 3-6 months and when they become productive after 2 years bond perios they leave the company.. it is bad business for longterm.

    2. Medical insurance

    5. Friends hire friends mostly

    Advice to Management

    1.Stop forming cliques.
    2. Go by the rules when promoting and stop promoting only your friends
    3. Get to know all members of your team and not only the selective few
    4. Stop placing workers on a project without proper training
    5. Give better raises
    6. Stop giving awards to your friends
    7. $25 bonus on our pay check which is taxable is not enough for " a job well done" I would rather get a certificate.
    4. Keep one and one meetings more often with your team members
