    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Infosys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing significant to say/write. Not worthy

    Cons

    1. No 401k for an international company of this size. Yes, you heard me right.
    2. Isolated. The majority of the team members are Indian. They speak indian in the meeting. They hang out with each other without you. PM invited the indian team members to go out for lunch. If you are not Indian, you are not invited.
    3. When work for this company, you don't own anything. They are the indian. It's their company. Do it their ways.
    4. Working for infosys, you will feel like the outsider in your own country.

  3. "AX Consultant"

    I have been working at Infosys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of

    Cons

    This is a sweat shop. If you want to work from 8:30am to 11pm on the regular basis including Saturday and Sunday, this is for you.
    No 401k.
    The indian consultants speak indian in the meeting and jokes in Indian. You will feel like an outsider. They go out together, if you are not indian, you are not invited. Welcome to a great way of team bonding. You will become a minority because most of the team members are Indian. They look at you like somewhat like a nobody; because this is their company...although their company makes money in your country. I would not recommend anyone to work for this company.

    I have been working at Infosys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with many different clients and learn a lot.

    Cons

    The benefits are not that great and once a project ends, you are asked to relocate if another one in the area is not available.

    Advice to Management

    Promote or reward those who are doing well to reduce the retention rate. Hire less managers and hire more quality developers/engineers. When you know a project is coming to an end, help find a project for the current workers in advance instead of putting them on bench where the fear of being let go for being on bench too long occurs. That is why many of the good ones will leave.

    Pros

    It is a good company. Lots of opportunities & learning scope. Latest technologies. Lots of clients. Friendly colleagues. Great place indeed.

    Cons

    Not many downsides that I find. If you are hard working, there shall be a lot of growth & learning opportunities available.

    Advice to Management

    Pay needs to be increased. Pressure on employees should be reduced. Work-life balance for employees needs to be taken care of.

    Pros

    Stable working environment. Chance to work with large clients. Salary standards matching market levels. Defined growth path. Friendly co-workers. Global Presence.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Very process oriented and not much flexible. Growth is slow and presents limited chances for horizontal movements across the organisation. Lot of things are dependent on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the rigid processes. Offer more flexibility for employees to move across different areas of work. Start a process to have employee managers looking forward to working with them towards defined long term career goals.
