Current Employee - Engineer
No opinion of CEO

Pros

If you enjoy cruising through your days at work, you can pull it off with the right manager. That's a plus right?

Cons

To move up the corporate ladder you need to be a loud mouth, dominating all others in the room. It doesn't matter if everything you're saying is garbage, as long as you say it with conviction, you're all good. This is what annoys me.

Advice to Management

Listen to some of your employees. Ask them for their opinion. You might find they have great ideas for improvement, especially if they are more educated than you.

    "Not so great management, good infrastructure but a lot of disparity in salary across the company."

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get lot of time for personal life
    Would rate 4/10 in terms of social life (parties,events, etc.)
    Great salary structure (not salary!)
    Complete internet access to all messengers / sites (FB,Twitter etc.)

    Cons

    People who have no experience in .Net are leading the development teams in .Net
    No processes in place for appraisals and salary increments, its always a last minute thing!
    Overall the technical competency and management capabilities of leads and managers in pune office, is very poor.
    Technically you can not grow in this company, however you get full internet access so you can learn on your own.
    Company is a product company, but the pune management thinks and works like "services" company.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to change the mindset of "services" company and think like a product company.
    The focus should be on quality and not on how much time you stay after office hours !

    I worked at Varian Medical Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Medizintechnik ist ein guter Grund, hier zu arbeiten - spannendes, vielseitiges Arbeitsumfeld - Möglichkeit, alles von Datenbanken, Maschinensteuerung bis hin zur Beschleunigerphysik zu lernen (und diese Möglichkeit wird auch gegeben) - sehr faire, mitarbeiterzentrierte Wahrnehmung.

    Cons

    Aufstiegsmöglichkeiten mit langjähriger Unternehmensstruktur begrenzt.

    Advice to Management

    Mehr Austausch Schweiz - Palo Alto.
