    I have been working at Aricent full-time

    Pros

    Aricent technology options and learning will be very good.
    Best company to work till E2 to E4 level

    Cons

    Most of the long timer in the company show unethical behavior and can't be discussed with your superior/HR who is again a long timer in Aricent... You would be humiliated if you try to get focus on any technical aspect.

    Work life balance would be very less. Customer commitments are very high without understanding the available resource and resources skills set. After the customer commitment, newly joined E5 and above will be scrutinized badly.

    Pros

    Technology wise work is really good and get opportunity to learn and grow technically

    Cons

    Offshore work culture in most of the projects is really bad. Unrealistic deadlines and late work stays is very common among most of the projects.

    Onsite compensations are one of the worst among industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    The management should be more transparent. Processes are in place, but not followed for all.

    Pros

    As long as contract is there, they respect and make you work. Payment is on time. HR gets involved to support administration issues

    Cons

    Very less pay to employees and not even a welcome lunch/dinner or yearly bonus gift. No perks. Just annual salary and once contract is over, they leave you on road.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how employees are directly working at client sites and get feedback to have relationship with employees.
