    Pros

    Good Work Environment and culture, Good Leadership and career guidance

    Cons

    The HR department is horrible except for one person and the Admin there do not think practically, for them cost cutting matters even if the employee suffers.

    The salary hike is not good and also the Promotion criteria.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly reconsider your policies.

    I worked at Birlasoft full-time

    Pros

    Pros are definitely depends on your project and your role on the client side. Often you are an individual contributor, so not much pressure to get the business. Salary can be competitive to the market based on your skill.

    Cons

    Cons - not much growth opportunity, no good benefits

    Advice to Management

    Try to build business apart from your number 1 clients. Build on technical folks.

    I have been working at Birlasoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. one of the best about this company is if you know the policy you can utilize them otherwise you will be used by these.
    2. New CEO is making some serious differences now.

    Cons

    1. Top management needs to change. Few guys are from more than 10-15 years and they are just surviving.
    2. Appraisals need to be consider as a serious part of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management is itself needs to be change

    Pros

    I would say that there is no pros to work here. It is just you happen to bump in them,

    Cons

    Too much talk about money that how to get more money from client.
    Worst management I have seen working offshore. Will never solve your problem but instead keep you in email loops.
    Will never take care about their resources.
    and so on

    Advice to Management

    Instead of talking about money, please consider about issues of resources.

    Pros

    Only for those who are in good books of Individuals who matters.
    Nothing is good for employee, clients as well as Organization itself.

    Cons

    Not a policy based company. From salary hike to promotion, every thing is 90% exception. The policies are only to halt the growth of individuals who are not in the good books of individuals who matters. Extremely boot licking culture is growing, which was not there earlier.

    No long term plans.
    Losing faith off big customers, which hampers prospects of growth
    Sales is handicapped and so is delivery leadership. I have not seen any sales meet with existing clients over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Become a Policy based organization. Even your clients are now concerned about good resources leaving. Please advice the middle management, to stop playing with the career of senior technical resources.

    There is almost no intent of retaining resources, which is another big concern. Your policies have not helped you grow. You were 5K in 2006 and around 5K in 2016.. So please introspect. Your rivals, who started at the same time gained much more.

    Policies are made to grow the company. Your policies are neither company friendly, nor employee friendly and also not client friendly.

    Pros

    Unfortunately, There are absolutely nothing good to working at this company.

    Cons

    Full politics.. If you want to grow on the basis of your talent than this is not place for you. Only way to move up in this company is to better polish your manager.

    No salary hike. No good projects.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of talented resource and Please stop awarding people just because they lick your boots, award people who honestly work for your company.
