    I worked at SLK Software Services

    Pros

    First two years of freshers are good after that only politics.

    Cons

    1. Appraisal process changes every single year, no clarity on the appraisal rating system, unethical means of appraisal are followed.
    2. Managers are fools cannot make any decisions and keep personal grudge on resources.
    3. People with only 6 to 7 years of exp are made in to managers to save cost, these resources cannot make any independent decisions.
    4. freshers are too easily put in higher positions, they start dreaming to quickly of managing a team where are a senior resource is kept on hold with no opportunities.
    5. organization automation team sucks, builds tools to capture some data without even understanding the usage of it, if asked questions they get personal and tell resource to stop wasting their time.
    6. wont give relieving letter on the SLK letter pad just a photo copy with slk rubber stamp (Saving on bond paper expense).
    7. employee retention policy is not at all available.
    8. BU HR team thinks that it is the boss and the Current team of BU HR is very rude.
    9. Managers change every single year, managers don't participate in any technical aspects of projects.
    10. resource allotment is blinded, any resource is allotted to any team screwing up the resources future. (a Automation/development resource can be allocated to manual testing teams).
    11. not sure if management is really dumb or act dumb, don't give hike to resources when in org, the same resources leaves the org and joins the org again and these people send them on H1B assignments, with almost double package and higher designation. This I say is heights of lickativity.
    12. favoritism is at large, people who lick are favorites and get all the opportunities.
    13. no entertainment/amusement factor in the org.
    14. rotational based opportunities are also not available, people who go onsite lick QA leads rare.

    There is more to add to above points but i am getting tired of this now, that's why i left SLK and this conversation. also, many of it has already been covered by others like Compensation, politics etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Compensation on time and with appropriate openness.
    2. work on all points above might help slk to regain some lost name.

    I worked at SLK Software Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Freshers have exposure to new tools. Client exposure is good.

    Cons

    Very bad salary. No growth. Only thing runs here is politics. Was part of company for 4 years. Top management is lead by some bad ppl. Skill doesn't matter here only if you act as per your Boss' s wish you reach some heights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I personally feel the company had lots to offer. Please look into the management and analyse why old, loyal and hardworking ppl who helped to build SLK are leaving it.

    Freshers - 100% exposure. 0% compensation.

    Pros

    - Great place to learn.
    - More responsibilities.
    - Exposure to new technologies.

    Cons

    - Freshers will never reach market salary.
    - There is a huge gap between salary paid to lateral and those who joined as freshers. Sometimes laterals will be paid double that of those who joined as freshers.
    - No transparency in appraisal system. Same ratings will get different appraisal based on managers whim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Try to pay lateral and freshers same compensation if they are of same experience. If you pay less for your freshers you should not hire laterals by paying more.

    Pros

    Left in disgust - If you are not an old timer here - no chance of growth

    Cons

    Croonyism
    Clear demarcation between old timers and laterals
    CEO is disconnected from reality
    COO covers up fro the croonies
    Join only as a fresher - laterals - no way!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top Man - pls have a random sample of projects. Talk to PMs - promise confidentiality - you'll see the rot in the system.

    Pros

    You will have job to survive

    Cons

    Money is the only thing everyone talks about. Not a good place for techies who want to learn and grow in IT industry. No ethics and no value for employees. All their policies are mostly employer oriented and purely one sides. They looks for lot of time bound agreements for training, onsite assignments etc. And keep pushing new policies every day. All their policies are like Indian Penal code sections but are very stringently and one sided. They follow Hire and Fire policies. They have a stringent policies for relieving resigned employees but fire employees without giving any reasons.
