    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Noida (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Noida (India)

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

    Pros

    - Good training for freshers.
    - Good if you want to work 9 to 6.
    - Have directly interaction with onshore.

    Cons

    - Managers are dictators and are not technical at all. So Don't understand the crticality of the project and resource.
    - Very poor in giving Salary.
    - Management try to show that they are very transparent which is not true at all.
    - India Management is very bad, while Onshore team are very cool.
    - Use old technology(JAVA) which is not at all relevant in the market if you are looking for the switch.
    - Rewards are used as tools rather than recognition for the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't try to show that you are very transparent , else please work on it. Try to ensure that policies are fair enough and are equally applicable for all.

    Pros

    Some interesting projects from time to time. Convenient location, especially after relocating to a new office. Some opportunities to show your own strengths.

    Cons

    Middle/senior management believed the way to motivate employees was to shout and swear down the phone in a very aggressive and bullying manner. Not enough project work to keep fully occupied.
