    "Lot to learn - Software Engineer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Software Engineer Trainee 

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a fresher, there is a lot to learn from here. Being payments domain, this is a different area which will be an asset for you in the future, if you want to seek opportunities in finance/banking sector.

    Cons

    Even after 2 years, the management have not yet changed the designation. For two years being a Trainee is very bad. This is also causing problems when I search for new job, since I am a Trainee even after 2 years of service. Salary increment is negligible. For a fresher getting 6% increment when you only have 2 lakhs salary per annum is very cruel. The appraisal I have got is just Rs. 700/- per month after working... for one year. This also will negatively impact your career growth when you wish to change your company. And last thing, they will say saturday will be a holiday but you will have to come. But this is not the same for all departments.
