    I worked at Covansys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talented people, it's a great place to work. People were very aggressive in their work. They were very helpful too. I's offered adequate training for this role.

    Cons

    Need to have more work life balance. I's putting 14-15 hrs a day for continuously 6 months. I's very tired after 3 months and looking for break.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create more opportunities for junior management people. Team must have women power as well. It's all male centric when I was working

    I worked at Covansys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good at processing H1-B visas and green card applications, given their rich experience.
    Good for young professionals just starting their career.

    Cons

    For a bit senior professionals, there is no career path to advance. Even with a newly minted MBA, they would still want you to do the same job, without a slight chance of advancing to a higher level.

    They tended to do a lot of "staff augmentation" projects, meaning, just sending people to work for big companies as contractors. In the consulting sector, this is nicknamed "body-shopping".

    Management is quite Indian style, with refined skills in withholding information and misleading their subordinates.

    The executive team was not effective in forming and executing strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Be real and be honest with employees.

    Pros

    Covansys is a good company for who does not have out standing technical skills and who expects buttering. This company is totally good for new comers and not for outstanding performers. No process, No protocol, No growth, No appreciation from Acct Managers. Ofcourse Compensation and Medical benifits are bit Ok than other employers and 401 k as well.

    Cons

    This company ios losing reputation because of Account Managers and all full time employees are leaving this company just because of Account level managers and they are not getting any benifits and recognition, just account level managers are treating fulltime employees like a slave, and no respect at all. No employee can expect any growth if you want to be in this company and work as a donkey without expecting anything...even if you operform well at customer site the accout level managers do not give any appreciation and they dont pass this to HR or higher management they are just becoming like a big wall between employees and HR management. There are many politics going on at customer site, and they are taking full of sub contractors in place of fultime employees, even when the budget cut happens at the customer site they wantedly remove fulltime employees and keeping sub conmtractors unwantedly this is happening sice couple of years everywhere in customer locations in Covansys. Just because of commission they are taking sub contractors and keeping at customer site, even they are not eligible for that perticular position and even they do not have minimum performance.

    Advice to Management

    Please evaluate all Account Managers performance and remove them from the company, and keep eye on all accout level managers and how they are performing and treating employees at customer location. Please give first priority to fulltime employees instead of sub contractor when you do follow these steps this company will be in good shape otherwise this company will lose all good performers.
