    Pros

    Good team environment and plenty of work. Company is expanding and has plenty of opportunities. Pay is pretty good with yearly raises for exceptional employees.

    Cons

    Administrative tasks (Expense reports, travel exp) can be a hassle. Upper management is not as transparent around bonuses as we would like. The goals for the practice are not outlined as well as the overall company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let us know if we are not reaching our goals for the quarter so we can know in advance about bonuses. Letting us know a month after quarter close is not acceptable.

    I worked at Rolta India full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked within a GIS Services group at Rolta's office in Alpharetta, Ga. Our department was staffed up quickly with ample opportunity for promotion within our group at the height of our client demands.

    Cons

    The GIS services group was a 75 member team assembled for a massive project with a single client. Our department operated wholly seperate from the rest of the company, and it often appeared in my three years there, as if there were never any real intentions of furthering the GIS services group. There were no opportunities to move up past a Team Lead position for anyone in my department. During my time with the company, there were three different Presidents, massive overhauls in staff, and consistent inconsistency from upper-level management in terms of company direction and communications. From a marketing perspective, Rolta propagates ambiguous, industry buzzwords, but lack the inter-departmental communication and consistency in direction to execute and deliver a satisfactory product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal in honest terms with employees. Improve communications between India and Rolta-America. Improve specialization in one area (Oracle BI Suite) and be the best at that. Stop attempting to be a jack-of-all-trades, because in 2014, that just makes you a master of none.

    Like a factory

    I worked at Rolta India full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, company provides good equipment and a comfortable work space. I miss my two wide screens very much. Company seems extremely tolerant of mistakes and personal eccentricities, probably to a fault. Pay started out well below industry average, but the squeaky wheel gets oiled. Even though employees are salary non-exempt, working more than 40 hours per week is discouraged and in the rare circumstance that it is required, it is compensated in the form of 1.5x bonuses. Good place to sharpen your GIS digitizing skills, that's pretty much all you're going to do. You would really have to screw up big-time to get fired.

    Cons

    Lack of support from executive level in project and lead development leaves middle and senior management handcuffed. Short term outlook creates stressful and low-morale working environment. Very little advancement opportunity, and cross-training to be adaptable to multiple roles is virtually non-existent. There is no incentive and little encouragement for continuing education or building additional skills in GIS. This is a digitizing factory, and like a factory, there is a very rigid working schedule where everyone is a clock-watcher and each 15-minute increment of your day is tracked and measured.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rigid schedule is a result of management's lack of trust for employees, who are treated and monitored, and disciplined like children. In turn, employees are not motivated to improve and become complacent. It's a vicious cycle and a downward spiral. The micro-management culture and laughable executive support for the division creates an environment where the best are constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to jump ship. It's not just about money, it's also about stability, support, and development/grooming of capable, versatile employees.

    My advice to the Chairman and Managing Director, K.K. Singh: the time we met, you had a weak, floppy, dead-fish handshake. I was not impressed.

    Pros

    Some good people in the practices and sales but other than that can't think of more

    Cons

    Poor management, constantly changing direction and management, nothing they offer is unique compared to other leaders in this space nor are they competitive, not many quality references. Lack of respect for sales people. Could go on and on….... My advice is only go here if you are desperate, particularly if you are sales minded.

    Pros

    Lots of cash from India

    Cons

    Too many cons to list. No direction, 80%+ consultants are contractors, no support from management. It goes on and on. Take a job here only if you are desperate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define who you are - or what you want to be. Get a message together. Focus on something instead if trying to be everything to everyone.

    Pros

    - Pockets of strong delivery talent (but overall weak)
    - Talented people in industry groups (Financial Services, Oil & Gas)
    - Good ideas in marketing (but little execution)
    - Handful of good, name brand clients

    Cons

    - No leadership...zero...nada...no one makes decisions and no one is in charge
    - Sales people are all staff aug type...all but one or two actually do harm.
    - No vision...where are we going? What are we selling? Even if sales was good impossible to do effective sales and marketing with no vision
    - India has too much control

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Define a vision
    - Make decisions
    - Keep your talented people (let them do what they are good at)
    - Shed your non-performers
