    India's global HQ always wants to be in power, expressing your opinion will most likely lead to a loss of your job

    I worked at Symphony Teleca (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company will provide work life balance. The processes are not defined and vary from one work group or function to another

    Cons

    Lot of politics. Your compensation, rating everything depends on how well you are doing politically. Hard work goes unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees and their work
    Need to work on better appraisal policies

  8. Good Service based company to work with.

    I worked at Symphony Teleca full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is very aggressive and growth minded and has the backing from STG. There are definitely some very talented and knowledgeable people there.

    Cons

    The CEO has a very heavy handed and negative management style that filters down through upper management to the employees. He has driven many talented leaders from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internally the company needs to build a more positive and cohesive culture for the employees. To the external world, Symphony needs to communicate its core expertise more clearly. The marketing message shifts constantly and as a result potential customers are not clear on exactly what Symphony does.

    Pros

    Very intelligent workforce primarily working from India across many analytical functions.

    Cons

    You may find yourself learning the ropes on your own at this company. It is often difficult to get ramped due to lack of processes and documentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide on boarding assistance with processes and documentation.

    Pros

    Benefits are not bad. You may be able to learn something even though it isn't very useful elsewhere.

    Cons

    People are rude and always play blame games. Most processes and policies are made by Indians in India who don't understand anything outside India. It's an Indian company with "HQ in California" gimmick. They throw away money to acquire useless companies, and then fire people to make up the loss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing to say as they won't listen anyway
