    Pros

    1.Good work-life balance 2.Great people to work with. 3.Managers are helpful.

    Cons

    1.Average Salary is quite low as they weigh technical jobs with the non-technical ones. 2.Not so many technical projects as compared to the outside market. 3.Upper management is stiff with the compensation structure and job roles. You might be fired any day. 4.Transport services are poor, food quality in cafeteria is average. 5.Only one volleyball court for 6000+ employees, sports/leisure infrastructure is lacking. 6.HR does not come into picture often, which leads to dissatisfied employees,

    Advice to Management

    1.Work on Salary improvements and ensure job security. 2.Work on services like transport and cafeteria. 3.Provide better technical projects or easier access to HR and IJP's.

    Pros

    -Good work life balance. -Managers are good...i mean employee friendly.. -No pressure at work... -Exposure to domain is very good i.e., u can easily understand how your work will be helpful to business....

    Cons

    -It is employee luck whether he will get chance to expose to new technologies (all depends on which project u r working)... -You need to do support work which will irritates. -No onsite opportunities...even though if u get it will be max 2-3 months but scope of opportunity is very less... -Firing happened recently....so now-a-days not feeling about job security...

    Pros

    Good amount of work Company is adopting Agile culture Good Salary Nice facility in Bangalore

    Cons

    It's still not out of "Command and Control" mode It's tough to gulp Non-technical managers trying but not able to understand things from Scrum meetings. Final power rests with management and HR has not much of say here. Vision is not so great. They are moving out of multiple businesses and only interested in their core business are.

    Advice to Management

    More powers to HR to keep tag on Management Follow Agile properly. Synchronize the process

    Pros

    Good campus and Not much work pressure.

    Cons

    Unbelievable level of politics. HR is very weak, hardly takes pain to meet employees.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Managers & HoDs: Appreciate the effort and knowledge and not the domicile of employees.

    Pros

    Few managers are excellent. Especially the L2. Flexible timings.

    Cons

    Hell lot of nepotism, Especially towards girls. L3 abuse their power. They involve personally. Lay offs are happening.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit or promote people properly. Just because they are sycophants to L4s it doesn't mean they are good. They boot-lick. No wonder the company is going down.
