    Pros

    Canteen food is cheap and best, only Rs.40. That is the only thing I can say.

    Cons

    1) They give you a huge salary if they urgently required an experienced employee after completing your work in a matter of four months they will lay you off. Bye.. Bye.
    2) You can never expect a secured job.
    3) Any time you will be asked not to continue working for them. They will give you lame excuses for that.
    4) They have very little projects.
    5) They hire freshers for 3yrs bond for a salary of Rs. 7000 and they ask Rs.75000 as a security deposit.
    6) You won't get leaves as you get in other companies. Even if there is a cyclone or any major disaster, you will have to come to the office for work.
    7) It is a place for those who expect very little salary and work continuously extending the work hours.If you say that you cannot extend your work hours, you will be terminated.
    7) Join this company out of your own risk. It is better to be jobless.

    Advice to Management

    You people are really playing with the lives of employees. You people are surviving in this industry only with the help of freshers.

    I worked at Changepond full-time

    Pros

    Changepond will give you two cup of free tea/coffee morning and evening once.

    Cons

    ok let me tell you the inside story of changepond. If you are an experience candidate and your pay package is little high you can be fired at any point of time...One fine day they can call you and asked you to put down your paper. Only 3 to 4 long term projects are running and remaining are less budget IT project as per market standard and average period of those projects 6-8 months maximum after that if you are not manage to join any project they will fire you. Most of the project they will get on the basis of old client's reference, they does not have the capacity to get the project by calling tender ...They dont have any employee welfare program or whatever minimal they do its very ridiculous....They will sign you one year service agreement with you and if you violate the rule you have to pay 6 months salary.So, you will be in their trap for next one year .
    And if you are a freshers, first year you will get salary 11.5 K in hand (after their revised package) .you have 3 years bond. They will ask you to come on almost each saturday....No fun nothing is there, u will get frustrated with their work culture....but you can not leave the company as you have a bond and yes, you have to 75 k at the time of joining the company. So, join this company when you don't have any other options.

    Kindly Note: most of the positive reviews are faked and posted by the company itself.

    Advice to Management

    The way you run your company....in next 20 years also you have 3 floors (working conditions) and around 250-300 employees. You people dont have any business mindset or you have lack of capabilities to run the company.if your mindset is that whenever we will get some project, we will hire the employee from outside and kick off the employee when project is over ...sorry boss you will remain in the same position in next 10-20 years and like every year you will do chest thumping of yourself on the date of changepond birthday.
