    I worked at Persistent Systems (India)

    Pros

    The only thing I think of is that training at Persistent University is very good

    Cons

    1) Glorified body shoppers 2) HR people mistreat contractors very extremely (not sure about their employees) 3) Always looking for opportunity to replace their US workers with much cheaper Indian counterparts 4) Incredibly poor and unethical management system

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!

      Current Employee - Senior Project Manager 

      I have been working at Persistent Systems (India) for less than a year

      Pros

      culture is great. get to learn a lot. environment pretty good. Technology company with innovative approach. Location wise very convenient.

      Cons

      at this company growth takes a bit longer than expected. Though invests a lot on upcoming technologies it doesn't appear to have cutting edge projects for live implementation

      Advice to Management

      improve on sales effort to win new clients and new projects that work in new and upcoming technologies in digital landscape. Create a pipeline for bright fresh minds to be readily available to take on new wins

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Persistent Systems (India) full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Some of the good points about the company are that they provide good office infrastructure, good food/canteen facilities and bang in the city thus convenient commuting.

      Cons

      Nothing much to right home about. The company has completed 13 years in Nagpur, but moving ahead will be very difficult, especially once Infosys starts commercial operations. High attrition now and potential mass exodus then will make the operations unviable

      Advice to Management

      Nothing much. Brace up for the tough times lying ahead of you.

      Cons

      Salaries are average, nothing great Performance assessment and compensations processes need a lot of improvement They have a lot of good projects and collective knowledge of technology but lack a good platform to share it or find information you are looking for

      Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Pune

      I worked at Persistent Systems (India) part-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Friendly culture, good work experience, some degree of flexibility in work schedules.

      Cons

      Growth in pure technical side is difficult- they expect you to do some management, even if u don't like it. If you're working part-time, yet as productive as a full-time employee, you're not rewarded... in fact you lose out on bands and promotions simply because you're working part-time!

      Pros

      Join if you are Marathi Brahmin

      Cons

      HR and support functions are highly non professional. My leaves were deducted from FnF because i was falling short of few hrs. this was not informed to me so in short they expect you to complete 8 hrs on your last day :( Resource management people will start threatening on then first day of your non allocation. Poor management . people are promoted based on their relationship with seniors not because of their competency....

      Advice to Management

      Hire some good talent from outside dont micro manage . 8 hrs criteria will lead you no where. look at TCS, Cognizant. you completed 25 hrs but where you stand ????
