    I have been working at KPIT Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Minimal supervision (i.e. given a "long-leash"), competitive salary, decent benefits in US, good work-life balance

    Cons

    Convoluted internal processes, layers of offshore bureaucracy, no clear org chart, lack of ownership/accountability in support organizations, inability to secure key H1B resources and SMEs (as they often don't exist), onshore support often left to "swing in the wind" with an upset customer due to these reasons

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to focus solely on bringing costs down by focusing on fresher hires versus seasoned SMEs... your customers are noticing, and feeling the pain (as well as your US account staff as key consultants head for the exits).

    Pros

    Enjoyed the culture and atmosphere of the organization. I would make changes in the way management makes their decisions.

    Cons

    Long hours and lots of times I have to take my work home with me. I wish they could be more flexible so i can balance my family life with work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable to lower level employees and allow more flex time to attend to family matters.

    Pros

    Respect for every Individual
    Vision of Top Leaders

    Cons

    Most of the next level after the CEO is lost and is not connected with reality
    Trying to sell projects like Big 4 or specialized firms, but hiring and building delivery model like large India IT shops, the disconnect does not work in reality
    Slow in making changes

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your leaders and take action to replace them with internal candidates when they are not performing

    I worked at KPIT Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was my first ever company hence I got to learn a lot here.
    Work culture is good here though it depends on the project.
    For me in my first project, 'Denso' we worked really hard but there was a work life balance however in my
    If at all you want to learn and increase your knowledge you should definitely work here in your initial years but you need to compromise on the pay.
    If you have prior experience of 3 to 4 years and then you join KPIT they will give you really good pay.

    Cons

    In my second project. 'Continental', it was a hectic schedule with no work life balance. We worked on weekends too for almost 3-4 months at a stretch.
    I was too tiring as we worked 4 to 5 hours overtime daily.
    As compared to the efforts we put in we did not get equivalent rise.
    Employee satisfaction was hugely affected due to this.
    The HR team would not let you change the project even though you have appropriate reasons instead they would say there are no other openings and I cannot let you change the project. They will not even change your role in the team easily. It will happen only if you put down your papers, only then you would get a role change. This caused so many employees to leave there job within joining of 2 or 3 months time.

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of he project in initial days and see to it if the estimations are met. Please do not promise things to the clients for getting more business at the cost of employees. Keep the project in-sync with Project plan so that you don't loose resources as it has already happened for Continental Project.
