    I worked at Tech Mahindra

    Pros

    I had a great leader and good culture in my project
    Decent brand name
    Good interesting clients

    Cons

    The company got too big too soon and I felt it faced a challenge maintaining the old culture
    The old excellent training programmes got cut down somewhat

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper training required before someone is made a Manager (instead of promoting people because they had spent time in the organisation)

    I worked at Tech Mahindra full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is hardly any advantage but must say that Tech Mahindra have very large strength of highly experienced professional.

    Cons

    In Tech Mahindra most of employees have high experience of about 12-20 years with age band of 40-50 years so these people do not care about career of new generation, freshers and college hires. There is lot of politics observed in this organization and very less chance of career progression. Experienced people do not give chance to learn as they were insecure of god knows what ?

    One more thing to add is managers do not want their employees to learn new things hence they do not allow for internal training so there is also very less chance to gain knowledge within organization.

    Not only managers but some employees were also there who are still working since 8 years with a salary of 14 thousand and do not have any option to leave as they were bound because they were not trained and limited to do same work for over years or decades.

    If someone ask me about what i have learnt in TechM i would say "Nothing other than internal politics".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should keep things consistent and have their process and policies standardized and equal to all irrespective of job level, also to keep salaries consistent without any ups and down such as miscellaneous deduction of over 60% and high salary over 150%.

    I worked at Tech Mahindra full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good infrastructure. Young Employees. Flexible Timing.

    Cons

    Terrible HR Policy. Terrible Salary. Non Serious Fresher induction. Expect you to work and learn on the job without training you properly.

    Project Managers think they are almighty and talk rudely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What is the problem to give a person posting near hometown initially if you have vacancies available and projects available.
    Ask the HR to listen to employees properly,even freshers. Not brush them off like dirt.

    At least give some proper salary when you torture freshers like that.

    I worked at Tech Mahindra

    Pros

    Training is not that good...It is too specific to techm...so you don't really learn a lot...
    promotions are quite slow..you will get appreciated for your work everytime(assuming you are good at it) but your salary, post, responsibilities nothing really changes that fast..not a place to be in if you want to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Office timings are bad...the transport, atleast in mumbai is bad...just one fixed time for the bus...if you ever get late you will have to come to office yourself...and if you have to come to office on weekends the compensation is much less than the amount you spend on travel and to top it all there is nothing other than biscuits in the canteen. and the locality is not that great to have some decent restaurants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Improve your training
    2. Make sure to repair the ceilings so that we don't have to sit with plastic sheets on stuck to the roof to prevent water from falling on our desks. There have been instances where we have kept dustbins on our desk to collect the rain water.
    3. Do something about the mice. Try to keep them away from our cubicles and the canteen! Please!

    Please be more transparent with Processes and do not make unnecessary Policy changes every 2 months.
    Increase weekend allowance and ensure investments are continuously done on People and not in Companies.

    Pros

    Company value, polices and process

    Cons

    Poor Resource management and low career growth with very less salary hike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From their own perspective they are doing right things to fat their balance sheet (Acquisitions, cost cuttings, denying salary hikes and promotions)... severe lack of inspiring leadership especially at top levels.
