    I worked at Symphony Teleca full-time for 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

    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

    Pros

    No pros to talk about.

    Cons

    This another India based subcontracting shop. They have no vision or understanding of the market. Extremely short term vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be serious. Top management is now all indian after the local management has been fired.

    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

    Work flexibility. Good benefits. As is true anywhere some of the people are good to work with.

    Cons

    Horrid environment. No concern for employees only for numbers. Very India centric. United States employees not valued. Top management yell and scream and belittle employees. Absolutely horrible place to work. Also don't be fooled by the "good reviews". Management told people to post good reviews on this site and others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employee satisfaction surveys. Dot just give them lip service. United States employees should be valued as well as those in India.

    Pros

    Strong & Participative Leadership; Passionate & Motivated employees to ensure company's success; Collaborate environment

    Cons

    May not be Cons for many - not so much process oriented and a go-getter individual can make a difference. Maybe Cons for people who seek for directions for all activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve HR's engagement with employees - HR should be seen more on side on employees, not as a Tool by management to control employees.
