Pros

Challenging Projects (almost every project turns in to a challenge), some of the interesting technologies you get to work on.

Recognition is hard to come. Management does not look for value added services that can bring more rewards.

Advice to Management

Recognize people who are smart. Remove layers of middle management.

    1. Lack of Transparency
    2. Appraisals are a joke - Not evaluated based on performance or relation with clients but based on how well we dance to seniors whims and fancies
    3. Very bad mix of cultures and sexes ( more sqewed towards Telegu Speaking ); Low female ratio in leadership roles
    4. Success has many fathers and failure is an orphan

    Advice to Management

    1. You are losing good talent because of your bad associate relations and unprofessional attitude. Buck up or you stand to lose your standing.
    2. Please bring in 360 degree appraisal process and review suggestions from associates seriously. Your ADI survey is a joke is what many feel.
    3. Sack the flab of high paid /low performers especially in senior management.
    4. Sr. Customer relationships especially by Sr. Satyam Management is very very weak. You guys just dont network.
    5. Focus on growth potential and relate accordingly with a prospective customer in advance. Dont classify importance later based on revenue derived from a customer.
    6. Build brand ambassadors and bring forth more leadership faces in front of the world than just few owners.
    7. Enhance your media relations globally.
    8. Show value to customers.... dont just keep doing tasks.


  2. "good for max of 2 years... then leave when you know you are not being rewarded well."

    Pros

    Your colleagues are your best pals. You are sure to have a team of helpful individuals. your colleagues will end up as your best supporter and vice versa. one of the best to start your career.

    Cons

    Management... total lack of it. they should hire managers with MBA degree from reputed colleges. and who has considerable IT experience. Appraisals are simply for process sake. if you are good friend of your manager, then you will surely will be appraised well. but if you are loyal to your work, then they would say... its not just about work. the client is billed for so low that the employees are not considered worthy enough on most occasions. Poorly paid.

    Advice to Management

    earn your degree. learn from your colleagues. sometimes good management skills can be learnt from your team members or clients. improvise on it.
