Before appraisal they will come up with some CTC. They will threat you to accept the CTC what they are quoting if we don't accept that they will say that if you are gonna go for normal appraisal cycle you will get very low CTC. Better you accept...

    I worked at Lionbridge for less than a year

    Pros

    Learning environment, able to learn new technologies specially in aerospace domain, no one interferes in your work, work location, interaction with client

    Cons

    Bad management, work-space can be better but the management takes no responsibility, the internal hike is not up to the mark

    Advice to Management

    Please see that the employees are leaving the company because of the "i care damn" attitude of the higher management
