Depending on what team you are on, the work life balance can be good. If you're on the 'wrong' team then you're work life balance will be terrible. Compensation at the higher management levels are competitive with the market. Lower level experience compensation is below market.
The accounting leadership is terrible. They are reactionary without purpose, finger point when things go wrong without looking at what happened or why, and have no vision. Instead of fixing problems, they react and blame and put band aid patches on issues rather than getting to the root of the problem and possibly working across teams. Extreme favoritism among the accounting leadership. Leadership weren't very up front or transparent on company issues and news, very poor communication but it honestly felt more than just that...almost secretive.5

If you are looking to relax with good work life balance - join this company. Hike better compared to other Indian IT companies.
Not much learning after 1 year. Leadership is not flexible for work from home and makes it a point to monitor if employees are reaching office by time. Immediate manager is biased towards particular group of people and ignores others. Not much growth in terms of position/role. You will not get good company of colleagues here. After sometime you will realise the need to get out. Office not good enough to allow recreation.17

1. Job security (tower engineering function is yet to be overtaken by AI) 2. Safe work environment
1. Non-competitive pay for civil/structural engineers considering volume of work and responsibility. 2. Few growth paths (most growth paths are lateral) 3. Engineering function is treated as a necessary evil instead of the business critical function it is. 4. Long work hours (difficult to achieve work life balance) even though work-life balance is a constant theme being pursued by management.

Excellent benefits, tech support, tech allowance, team atmosphere. Transitioned to full remote seamlessly. Office environment was friendly but facilities leave something to be desired. Work is varied with daily opportunities to work cross-functionally. Company is making efforts to be flexible and allow for work life balance.
Office politics. Internal groups are slow to get things done or provide necessary approvals, too many middle managers, difficult to move up unless you are at the company a very long time and are well connected. Frequent re-orgs that are typically more symbolic than anything.2

Good benefits Stable industry Work life balance is ok
Working hard and receiving great performance evaluations does not get you a raise.1

At the time of joining I had multiple offers and was in two minds whether to join ATC or not. Now after spending almost 6 months in this organization, I realized that refusing offer from ATC would have been a big mistake of my life. Here are some of the Pros : 1. My colleagues helped me in proper handover. Though documentation is not exhaustive but hand holding was amazing and I did not feel any stress et al to start delivering my work. 2. In my earlier organization (Before ATC IT SSC) I was working on the US project and almost 3-4 Days in a week I had to slog in the Nights for calls. Work Life balance is good and slogging is rare phenomenon. US colleagues are very accommodating to consider the time difference 3. I never worked on Weekends in last 6 months and leaves are plenty in numbers 4. Best thing is quality of work and hands on experience on niche technologies 5. Most of the work is done along with onsite colleagues and managers give free hand to the team. Senior Management is very friendly 6. International exposure is wonderful and even junior people get a chance to work with International colleagues. 7. I came from one of the Top 3 IT companies in India. But never find free biscuits/Chips/snacks on floor. It is always paid. But Here to my PLEASANT SURPRISE 2-3 types of biscuits / chips/peanuts…Buttermilk/Soups is all FREE…. 😊 and there are Evening SNACKS TOO …ALL Free 8. Office is nearby Metro Station….so commute is not a hassle 9. Company has Tie Up with OLA Corporate in case any rare case of late stay ..company provides free cab service
1. No Office provided cabs for daily commute 2. No McDonald/Pizzahut/Food Joints in the office…However my team order from Swiggy and Zomato which delivers promptly here 3. No long Term Onsite opportunities though there are short term travels..based on project needs 😊 4. No ATM in Office Premises…closest one is 3 minutes walking.2

Home and work life balance. Company provided vehicle. Bonuses throughout the year. Teamwork.
I honestly do not have any, unless it is a miserable contractor that cannot do their job proficiently.
