    Pros

    Company cares about it's people.

    Not a lot of transparency as to what's going on with contracts.

    Keep a bench of talented people. Have them train if they're not on a contract.

    Does not want to grow, Works on very old technologies, sweat shop mentality, lack of energy & enthusiasm

    Advice to Management

    1.) Make value add 4% of the timesheets for the organization..make it key KRA feature
    2.) Encourage corporate training
    3.) Hire individuals who foster creativity and growth..rather than only sweat shop workers

    Pros

    Good training program for graduates

    Quick induction onto projects and limited bench time

    Smaller teams, bigger responsibilities and plenty of learning opportunities especially for technical resources

    A few good and promising managers that uphold the culture and ethics

    Cons

    Limited # of projects; as a resource you take what you get

    No uniform culture across the company; Appears like the Sr. Management on certain engagements builds their own culture which did show signs of bias

    As an employee, lateral growth is limited. The primary focus is on service, which is good, but seems to be the only one. All round development or grooming to get to the next level are to be self-practiced

    Advice to Management

    Promote uniform culture among all members of the firm

  9. Small company, and poor mindset

    Pros

    Get to learn a lot more as a fresher, as they do not have a bench, so everyone gets on a project ASAP.

    Cons

    There are very few projects in the pipeline, low salary, employee benefits are not adequate.

    Advice to Management

    to grow the company, must think like a global corporation, not like a small company. Do not shy away from change, change is good for the company as a whole.
