    I have been working at Aricent full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wide range of opportunities across evolving technologies.

    Cons

    Difficult culture to navigate, decisions made contrary to vision and strategy - which are not well communicated at times. Some compensation decisions made without regard to impact on individuals, effectively providing a pay cut without notice and no future plan to correct.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better vision and strategy direction that translates to the different divisions, groups, teams and at an individual level. Too many decisions are made that are not clearly aligned to our understanding of the vision and strategy - although they may have changed and not communicated.

    I have been working at Aricent full-time

    Pros

    Fairly good salary, get to work from home, good vacation policy; if you can check your morals and ethics at the door and sit back to collect the pay check, then this isn't a bad gig.

    Cons

    Terrible culture - the worst! Extremely hostile environment for women - even if you're not located in India! If you're not Indian then your opinion doesn't matter. Culture is one of politicking and back-stabbing. Engineering division thinks they run the company. I don't trust the Finance team - shaky stuff going on there.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the culture! Operate with true honesty and integrity; treat people with respect; break down the Indian culture barrier; Successful global companies know that business is won/lost at the local level.
