    Pros

    You have flexible hours; overtime often available but not required, production bonus but you have to really work your *** off. Most coworkers are smart, dedicated, and very nice.

    Cons

    Spend all day glued to computer with minimal interaction with coworkers; poor benefits; greedy upper management which will throw workers under the bus to make a dime.

    Advice to Management

    Quit giving lip service to employee engagement and actually treat employees like you value them. Quit being g so cheap.

    Pros

    Some great people; many incompetent ones.

    Cons

    The upper management is all about jockeying for better positions at the expense of people below them. During the acquisition, they made stupid decisions to suck up to the new employees (racial discrimination).

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like, you know, people.

    Pros

    The people can be friendly depending on your race, nationality, and country of origin. They often prefer people of Indian-decent or of H1-B status. I suppose if you are Indian, that's a definite plus as you'll have a nice and long career here.

    The pay is pretty good. They've been tightening their belts lately and cannot offer the pay rates they previously did but it's still a decent salary although a lower bonus percentage.

    Cons

    If you are in I.T. expect to be working with offshore employees who focus on one thing and do it averagely. Mphasis doesn't like outliers or over-preformers, they try to work them out of the system as quickly as possible. This is because from an operations perspective - they can accurately predict and measure average performance whereas over or under achievers can throw off estimates and expectations. This is much different than working for a usual US-based company.

    The other con is the "bait and switch" tactic that the company uses to attract talent. Their advertised jobs for software engineers will list popular stacks and technologies but upon joining the company those engineers will be handed a product called "Mendix" to use. Roughly 80% of their time will be spent in this BPM tool and the rest either in meetings or actually working with the advertised technology.

    There isn't any path to communicate the needs and complaints of the employee. The material and hiring process will explain that you need to go through HR etc. and that there is an open-door atmosphere... That's all well and good, expect when you are sitting across the table from a CTO who sees you more as a line item on a budget and less of a person or individual.

    There are a considerable amount of layoffs and hiring US resources is tough or even frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch Mindex, even Mphasis resources are reluctant to use it.

    A second option or possibly a new CTO may be worth a shot - sometimes people are in the same position for so long they can no longer "see the forest for the trees".

    Hiring some US resources would be nice too. There is a considerable amount of technical debt. US resources would be better positioned to maintain that while offshore teams/hybrid teams could work on suitable replacements...

    Pros

    Employees were great people. Good to work with.

    Cons

    Micro Management from a manager more qualified to bake cookies and brownies at subways. Laptop was over 7 years old and weighed 40 lbs. No 401k match. Benefits way below standard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep staffing HB1 visas. At least they put in some work and are professional.

    Pros

    Great benefits, employee tools for building skills

    Cons

    Career path conversations are one-sided and limited to where they want you to go which doesn't always work if you want to change direction in your career.
