    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Aricent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) Competitive compensation
    2) Mostly work-life balance

    Cons

    1) One who is from SmartPlay they have different policies then actual Aricent employee.
    2) From top-level said ATPL(Aricent Technologies Private Ltd - legacy SmartPlay) and ATHL(Aricent Technologeis Holding Ltd - Actual Aricent) are same but at ground level there are so many differences. ATPL will not get logcal onsite bonus and yearly bonus etc.
     Person on bench has to fear of layoff
    2) For local onsite employee no one cares.

    Advice to Management

    Please make a commons policy and reduce the difference between ATPL and ATHL. Take care of onsite employee and connect with them on regular basis.

    I have been working at Aricent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It all depends on the client project one gets allocated to. Since I'm working at client location, I am entitled to the client facilities like free lunch, free wifi and also client allowance as part of monthly salary.
    Onsite opportunities depend on project requirement and also some element of luck.

    Cons

    At times, work would be hectic. Again it is specific to the project one is working on.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing as of now.
