A significant talent drought leads to opportunities for even the most mediocre talents.
Very little and very unstable existing business. Management mantra seems to be self-belief will deliver results - this faith based vision is more apt for the 80s, not the modern business environment. Terrible investment decisions in inorganic plays.
Advice to Management
Lose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.
I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time (More than a year)
Pros – Opportunity to take on new positions (only for Indians)
If an employee (is an Indian) and project ends, they can be picked up by another account without being fired
Cons – Management doesn't communicate well - huge veil of secrecy between India and US
Some unethical practices - particularly use of sleezy outsourced recruiters that will promise you anything and tell you anything to get you to sign on
Employee gets 'dropped' into positions without any mentoring or training
Peers and management favor others with Indian heritage and believe they're smarter than other cultures - baboons in suits
Management makes a lot of unrealistic promises to customers then expects front-line employees to figure it out on their own
Indian management throws other employees under bus to make themselves look good
Not a lot of teaming or collaboration to meet common goals - employees try to take credit for others contributions while going to great lengths to fingure out how to do as little as possible
Onsite employees outside of India are completely disconnected from the company - which is mainly in India
Training and events all held on IST timezone - no attempt to support other countries or timezones
Advice to Management
Advice to Senior Management – If your serious about breaking into the US market then you need to ensure Indian employees who are customer facing in the US adapt their business practices to be consistent with American practices. Also need to treat employees that are non-Indian the same as Indian employees - at very least don't appear so blatantly racist.
