    I have been working at Talentica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation, Learning, People, Leave policy, Office culture

    Cons

    Other than work life balance there is nothing I can think of. Though it is not required to come and work over weekends (though management expects it many times), there is a lot of work to do in weekdays and most of the times you would end up spending extra hours to finish it off as good as daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing..Already doing good!

    Pros

    You will learn how to do office politics. If you are not getting job anywhere so you will get job here.
    If you can do everything for your lead so this is best place to work. if you can not do that you are core technical then my suggestion not to join this company as you will loose your all technical skills.
    I don't find any reason to work for talentica

    Cons

    Totally Services culture.
    Earlier Talentica used to take only pure development work, it used to hire only from NIT, IIT it used to be good paymaster, it was not maintaining any bench.
    now none of these is true.
    i have worked for talentica, but i did not learn anything in that span other than how to handle office politics.
    My technical skills has really gone down as i did not get to learn much of the things, so now when i am trying to switch job i need to revise basic of coding as there are mostly maintenance projects in talentica. you can get pure development work only if you are lucky you will win all awards if you can do anything for your manager. If you can not listen to shouts of your manager then neither you will get awards nor appraisal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you can get cheap talent in market but my advise is that don't loose existing talent.
    try to make good culture

    Pros

    Great culture, projects, colleagues, management..

    Cons

    B.O.T. model, if you get too much attached to the project, and if the client is ready to take in the team, then need to choose between a good project and good company.

    Pros

    Very transparent in decisions. Smart workers are paid well, promoted and taken care of. No politics. Very good leadership in terms of Nitin and Manju.

    Cons

    The kind of talent they have, they could have focussed on a product development out of themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
