    I worked at Sasken full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Freshers can join this company only if they do not have any other option or offers in hand. They can terminate you for no reason once the project is completed (without any prior notice)

    Cons

    1. Poor package, 2. Too much of work : They may call you at any time in the mid night ask you to come to office and do start the work , You will not get comp-off or Extra pay for that. Even employee has to bear the travel charges in the mid night 3. Irresponsible HR team, 4 Worst Project Managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Increase the package for the right candidates. 2, Do not put the pressure on Single or less persons. 3. Increase the team size according to work.

    I worked at Sasken

    Pros

    Best company to start the career. Lots of training program, good environment and work culture.

    Cons

    Higher management unable to bring the projects, still they are getting good ratings, hikes and compensations. Especially HR ppls, they just roam here and there, conduct some events, enjoy and at last they are getting even promotions.
    One reason of not firing HRs may be they are from long time with the company, but company will not think this while firing an engineer. As HRs are skilled in flattery ;)
    policies are made by HRs, so they are in favor of them not as employee satisfaction. so recently lots of policy changes and firing of employees.
    Sasken losing its glory because of there poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My Cons are enough to advice.

    Pros

    Friendly environment and good work culture
    Supporting leaders.

    Cons

    I joined in sister company SNEL and recently moved to SCTL.
    Policies keep on changing company is benefits and employers losses
    Management shows zero profits, so no variable pay.
    They will come with onetime payment as performance token of 200 rs worst i .e 0.1 % of your compensation.
    After 1 year you will get hike of 4.1% for 1year completion.
    March hike will be payed in July month salary that is zero hike in the year 2014.

    Salary will be very less when even compaired with local company.

    No training programmes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please increase compensation for SNEL employees
    Don't play cheap tricks in terms of policies, variable pay, hike and performance token etc.

    Be transparent to employees. And pay compensation in time don't postpone for 5 months and 6 months.
