    There is only so much you can do!!!

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsAmazing place to learn new technologies as they are the best Telecom service provider in India. Perks provided are good.

    ConsWork pressure is too much to handle in the Service Delivery domain. Your weekend plans, vacations could go for a toss, if you are in Service Delivery.
    Org realignment or shuffling of resources happens too often, looks as if its a favourite pass time of the leadership, thus never giving a chance to settle down people once they actually start performing

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou dont mend what isn't broken

    Overall a good experience.

    Executive - Networks (Former Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    Pros1. Pleasant work environment, no unrealistic expectations targets at work.
    2. Strong inclination towards process, best practices and compliance.
    3. Fair compensation.
    4. A few may get good break in the form of Onsite opportunities. It completely depends on the image that you build in front of the management and client.

    ConsI worked in TCTS, telecom/ISP process, so I will mention cons relevant to it.
    1. Not much exposure to engineering/technology which is vital for an engineering/IT fresher.
    2. Difficult to switchover to equally good companies with this profile.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIdentify the right talent and groom them to into real company assets
