    I worked at Mphasis-Wyde full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. CEO Rajesh Makhija is a dynamic visionary transforming this company to profitable growth with a digital, front office, omnichannel solutions offering.
    2. Customers appreciated having a dedicated partner, with value added skills to keep their own teams on point!

    Cons

    This is not your father's Buick! But given the history of 5+ yrs ago, customers may need time to appreciate it.

    Advice to Management

    Blackstone and Mphasis best hope they can retain the CEO and support his iniatives. His credibility with customers is priceless. Talent like his gets noticed, and is valued at a premium!

    I have been working at Mphasis-Wyde full-time

    Pros

    Co-Workers are fantastic. Nice offices in US which includes free use of on site gym.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance - many people work 70+ hours a weeks. There is less travel but only because the company can't afford it anymore. Employee retention is horrible with all of the best and brightest fleeing. There is still a pretty solid base of knowledge but with the ridiculous hours, they will leave as soon as they can. There are no new clients because Wyde has a well earned reputation of not completing implementations. Due to lack of clients/projects, Wyde lays off employees, further decimating their knowledge base. The system is built with a proprietary language and is complex so that when new employees are needed/hired, they take a long time to reach the skill set required to be successful. Upper management is in constant flux as they try to figure things out. So far their solutions have been to underpay/ lay-off/overwork the project and program level employees while creating more and more executive level roles (which means executive salaries).

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money. Pay all staff equitable wages, Keep enough staff employed so that people can have a work/life balance and (in case you ever win another contract) staff future projects without trying to hire and train new people and then throwing them onto a project with minimal training and no mentorship. Get rid of much of the upper management roles that you keep adding. To be successful, you will need to be lean on the top so that you can afford to fully train, staff, and maintain excellent project and program teams.

    I have been working at Mphasis-Wyde full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful People, with lots of experience joining together to meet targets. A lot of flexibility on hours location of work.

    Cons

    Since the buy out the small company feel been replaced by remote Indian Corporate Leadership. Still a lot of good jobs here, but promotion opportunities are mostly reserved for Mphasis based employees who have grown up in the parent company or are India based.

    Advice to Management

    Closely manage the quality of India based employees, make sure to retail high quality resources in all regions. Quality not Quantity is the key.

    Pros

    The team at MPhasis was one of the most talented teams I have ever been on. I learned much about DBA work there and value everyone's professionalism.

    Cons

    The technology use is proprietary, obsolete, and hard to use. Upper management seems clueless about tech, and the best and brightest people there have left.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money into porting existing code into the .Net world. Cut your loses on GOLD. Revamp or eliminate your training department.

    Pros

    Excellent company with very strong work ethics. There is no dearth of exciting opportunities for anyone who is up a challenge. I am lucky to have got this opportunity to work with a team with so such talent, experience and dynamism. Excellent work life balance with the option of working from home. Since its not a huge company, one can go as far as one aspires to go! Zero Politics :)

    Cons

    Bad option for anyone who wants to take it easy. There is too much energy in the company that can interfere with complacency. Also, if you like a straight forward, plain vanilla, fully defined role ,you may find it tough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Mphasis-Wyde full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work culture which allows you to fit in the environment quickly and easily.
    Friendly employees who are always ready to help and share the knowledge.
    Small emerging firm were you can define yourself and leave footprints.

    Cons

    Salary structure not as par industry standard.
    Management don't care much about their employees.
    The product is based on proprietary language and the tool used to build the product is proprietary too.

    Advice to Management

    Since the product is on a proprietary language, it's difficult to find fresh talent from the market. MphasiS- Wyde management should give it a thought about their employees and work on retaining their employees. They should work on maintaining the pay structure as per industry standard.
