    Had a very bad experience as a Contractor

    I worked at RS Software as a contractor

    Pros

    Project Manager was relatively less interfering compared to many other Indian companies

    Cons

    RS Software hires contractors for projects that are very likely to go on hold, but tells them at the time of job offer that it's a long time opportunity and that the contract is for 1+ years. The recruiters are very difficult to get hold of once you accept the job offer and I had difficulty in getting to know my Reporting Details at the client site (Visa, their only client- well not exactly only client, but more than 90% of their business comes from them).
        But the biggest problem for me was my QA Lead from RS. She did absolutely no work whatsoever. I had to do two people's work (her's and mine) for the salary of one person and she would steal credit for my work. Not only was she not technical (i.e., not good at programming), but she couldn't think logically at all and had very bad grammar (didn't even know the difference between singular and plural or present tense and past tense). The only thing she was good at was flattering and lying. I had to do a lot of work for free and got neither any money nor any credit for the extra hours I invested.

    Pros

    1. Good people around (Team members). Very supportive.
    2. Good learning for freshers.

    Cons

    1. Management team does not have a vision.
    2. Management will not think about the personal growth or company growth.
    3. Employees are treated very bad after putting the resignation.
    4. No reply is provided for queries neither from management, nor from HR or finance department.
    5. Compensation is very low for experienced employees.
    6. The exit interview/ employee satisfaction survey suggestions are not reviewed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please think properly about the Employee Satisfaction survey and exit interview suggestions. Management should stop groupism. Training and development division needs to be restructured.
