    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Mumbai (India)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mumbai (India)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to interact with clients and get a lot of responsibility in your early years of career.

    Cons

    The responsibilities might get a bit too much. And software quality is given less importance but speed of delivering software deliverables is prioritized. Lots of bad software engineering practices. Peer knowledge was limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask the management to respect engineers and not treat them as mere resources. Give them compensation depending on their contributions. They way you discriminate BSc candidates from BTech candidates in terms of compensation is truly unfair.

    Current Employee - Quality Assurance Analyst  in  Mumbai (India)
    Current Employee - Quality Assurance Analyst in Mumbai (India)

    Pros

    The company seems to have a knack to stay afloat. Unfortunately, it is at the cost of the employees. However, when things are looking down worldwide, it is a good thing. A good place for just-out-of-college employees. There is a lot to learn. But I guess that is the case with any new activity you embark on. The initial learning curve is high.

    Cons

    Very very bureaucratic. No respect for employees whatsoever. Extremely slow growth unless you are very very lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do respect the fact that the employees make you what you are. Seriously!

    Pros

    1. Flexible work timings.
    2. Good working environment

    Cons

    1. Management is a little partial toward employees. Lot of favouratism.
    2. Very Bad rise in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the ability of every employee and try and assign the project accordingly. Not that a person interested in testing/support should be put in a development project. Please give some consideration to the inclination of the employees for a particular field and technology and assign the projects.

    Current Employee - Senior Tech Lead  in  Mumbai (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Tech Lead in Mumbai (India)

    Pros

    - Highest flexibility to what I want to do mostly I would attribute to the culture of managers in Mumbai office
    - Excellent trainings of highest quality
    - Ample opportunity once your prove your technicals
    - A lot of ex exmployees wants return to TechM

    Cons

    - A surge of ASM projects, so new trainees may potentially have chance of allocating anywhere but if they are in top 10 of training batch they can opt for their own preference
    - Getting stuck to a bad manager can ruin personal prospect in any company not specific to TechM

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Vision in terms of productisation, capability building and knowledge reuse needs a larger overhaul, expect a better situation post merger with Satyam
