    I worked at Zensar Technologies Limited full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people from the Akibia days.

    Cons

    Akibia was a good, solid company with a nice culture but was bought by Zensar and then went completely downhill. Jobs continue to be moved to India to cut costs and local people are losing jobs (you never knew when it was going to be your turn). Senior management treats lower level employees as if they don't matter, the work environment is toxic and there is zero leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Zensar is a service company where employees should be your most important resource, you are not valuing the people you have and only care about cost cutting measures to satisfy stockholders. Get a clue or good people will keep running out the door. People are not robots even though you refer to them as such!

    Pros

    Not much to say that was good about Zensar.

    Cons

    I originally worked for Akibia, and this was a great company. Zensar bought us and I have never worked with a bunch of lying and clueless executives. They never told the truth about what they were going to do with us. So, it was a slow death to a great company. As soon as the transition was over the ax started to fall on the original executives. A lot of key people left once they realized that Zensar had no clue how to run our business.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here would be you need another 6 months to find a real job. They won't have a clue before then because the place is extremely unorganized.

    Cons

    Need to be in the boys club of sales in order to make money. No solid leadership , lots of talk no bite. If your looking to have a leader who has had the shovel in the dirt at some point - you are way off. In the box thinking. Poor support. Poor loyalty. No development path what so ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No enough room here.

    Pros

    Immediate management was very understanding, proactive, and willing to listen.
    Project was as good as the manager you had. I had very good project managers that fought for their employees
    Good salary and bonus structure

    Cons

    Upper level management was out of touch and did not listen to employees. In addition, upper level management did not have solid relationships with some clients they were serving.
    Some colleagues had issues on projects regarding billable hours, etc. due to inferior PMs
    If you were not a part of the correct 'group' within the company, it was tough to get noticed or respected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that upper level management is conscious of their employees' needs and ideas.

    Pros

    Good Onsite opportunities though at a cheap salary.

    Cons

    HR department - worst than 90's govt offices(india)
    Lot of idiots at the VP and higher levels
    No motivation
    No career growth
    You will be stuck with 90's technologies
    Below market rate salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some talented people instead of promoting your relatives and disciples.
    Give importance to the individuals talent rather than personal relationship in the promotion process
