    Pros

    Good growth potential but only after merger with Mahindra Satyam is complete.

    Cons

    No transparency, untrustworthy middle management. 'Favorite' team members given better projects, more onsite opportunities and faster promotions than those with merit/skills.

    I have been working at Tech Mahindra full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work is broken down into small pieces so that one person does not feel the full load but I guess this is with every IT company.

    Cons

    1,Tech Mahindra does not have projects still it keeps on people on bench and they keep on feeling the pressure.

    2. Major customer is BT and it is in theprocess of taking out the business Now, the manpower which was recruited for BT projects suddenly does not have much work. The whole telecom industry is down does not help much.

    3.The middle level managment is too arogant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company was formed to exploit the oppoirtunity of BT IT business. Now, this decline of telecom should have been forecasted before (it is the job of leaders, I suppose) and business should have been diversified much before. This is the faiure of leadership.

    Pros

    Telecom sector focus is the only reason, why one should think of working at this firm. The energy and spirit prevalent 3 years back is lost and now everyone is just working to protect their position with no interest in developing the company or growing the business any further.

    Cons

    Politics, self promotion, bad HR policies, management team which is not motivated and not interested in either the employee or customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp HR, mean what you communicate and focus on business growth. Get back the energy and spirit of 2007 TechM and retain the small company culture that helped you grow so fast.

    Pros

    One good reason to work with Tech Mahindra is the culture which gives the employees the freedom to learn

    Cons

    Disatisfied employees, no work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to give direction to the resources and mentor them in a way which will benefit the employees and the employer. Allow people to work work from home, it will save space, electricity and commuting which will benefit the environment and the employees will be happy and there will be more productivity.

    Pros

    1. Flexi Timings
    2. You can experience the worst culture of corporate world here.

    Cons

    1. Senior management is of poor quality.
    2. People hired for one skill are made to work in other projects which required different skillset.
    3. Promotions are based on your relations with your manager.
    4. TechMahindra will prepare you for politics :) As everybody is more interested in playing games than doing their work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to recruit managers good enough to look up to rather than focusing all your energy on cost cutting even when the recession is gone.

    Pros

    I really loved intially working for TechM. It has good work culture. And have a good policy for work hours as well which gives flexibility for employees.

    Cons

    There are very much cons here..first of all SALARY. Poor appraisals. No job satisfaction. HR policies fluctuating every month. People here are as if working for social cause since they get no appraisal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls think of employee satisfaction as already very good resources have left TechM for poor salary hike.

    Pros

    Good Initial training programs. More onsite opportunities are available in TechM as compared to other companies. Recreational activities from Josh is a good initiative.

    Cons

    Underutilization of employees. No salary hike. Very bad drafting of the conditions for variable pay policy. Not a single employee is satisified with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acquiring new companies at the cost of your employees' salaries is not at all a good way to do business.Start caring for employees rather than caring for business.
    It will help TechM in the long run
