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

    Pros

    Remote office option
    Work life balance
    Good understanding of the US market
    Recruitment team is very efficient - Harshit is one of the best recruiters to work with. He maintained a constant follow up, kept me informed about every stage of the recruitment process and made on-boarding smooth and easy for me.

    Cons

    Everyone is from India in top management (VP's, AVP's, Directors)
    The old fashioned leadership style (taking decisions about US operations from India) is killing your brand. You need to understand that US market is absolutely different from how Indian market operate.
    Complete lack of ownership and delay in execution of crucial decisions is making life difficult for people at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and give them a free hand to work stop taking decisions on how to run US operations from India.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work going in terms of Trust in employees and focus on customer success, celebrating each success and providing opportunities to learn has attracted new talent and loyalty with existing employees.

    I have been working at Newgen Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of potential growth areas - mostly unrealized
    Sometimes windows open up to meaningfully contribute - usually takes effort from the individual to contribute because of slack culture

    Cons

    Lack of relevant leadership and mostly focused on the wrong priorities - senior org is optimized to manage budgets/spend, and they are programmed to control expenditure, which might not be the right focus if you are trying to grow a market like the US.
    The above point helps understand the complete lack of efficient processes -
     savings in time and scalability are not prioritized, human controls from Delhi are.
    Terrible benefits - no retirement, no matching, no public transport subsidies. Recognition is sketchy and dependent on brown-nosing and 'face-time' investments. Don't expect timely feedback for your efforts, some leaders are good and you have to be lucky to be noticed when you are trying to make a difference.
    Caste-ism (yes it exists!), favoritism, nepotism, 'family', connections.
    It is hard to excel, harder when the culture accepts mediocrity (just check out the public website and other collateral for starters), and is scared of any change or suspicious of people trying their best.

    Advice to Management

    Big mismatch between big words and actions. Most people see through it.
    Instill professionalism, and yes that starts with you!
    Smart clients in the US have options and are not going to accept mediocre to shabby performance. 'Personal touches' can only go so far.

    Pros

    If you are yes men.

    Cons

    Not life- work balance, not 401K, no benefits, no PTO policy, All resources are India, HR, marketing, technical etc, with very low quality. If you are not Indian they just no put as priority and involved you at all, & speaking their languages so you won't be able to understand. Very disrespectful environment, if you have an opinion the management literally raised their voice at you since they considered themselves as an experts,the approach of Americas market is terrible since they think is the same as India. No strategic whatsoever, cero perception of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a resources in USA, listen your team, share & involved the information.
