    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I am working since 7+ years in Saama (U.S.) and I have worked for 6 years in Saama (India). Management is very transparent, specially the CEO and the Senior management. I appreciate the event in which CEO of the company personally meet and chat with the employees on their yearly anniversaries in Saama. Administration and Saama Lawyers are well organized and respond promptly. We get good opportunities to work with... various demanding technologies if we show or develop our tendency in the respective field. Entertains and initiates the learning and training environment

    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you get lucky to get a good BI project then there is learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management. They lay off people if they are unable to place them in a new project soon even if they perform well. They pay below market rate and want you to learn Big Data technologies apart from project work. They do not spend a penny on training people. They expect you to work , work and work. Best for people who love to work 24 hrs a day at low salary.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop hiring and firing at the same time and have some respect for people who worked so hard for so long.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Saama Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place to start your IT career with. Can get opportunities to work with various technologies. Can't complaint about the benefits. Protective employer and I love the immigration lawyer they have, as there are many Indian, Asian and other immigrants working in the company. Appreciates an employee well when he/she shows good appetite towards their job.

    Cons

    Horrible top management. They do not care about the employee when it comes to job vs personal interest of the employee. Some Managers care about their employees but most of them care only when the employee gets to a drowning situation. I have seen times where Managers shout at their employees like they were slaves. Some are not protective of their employees at client locations. Salaries do not have standards and HR... gives a vague explanation when asked for why this happens. Hard growth unless you burn yourself and have a worst work-life balance. Its is OK if you do your 9-5 job or try more than that. No bonus whatsoever.

    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is no shortage of opportunity at Saama with a typical assignment lasting 2-3 years. Those located in Bay area don't move around to other places. Only new accounts after 2-3 years.

    Cons

    If you are seeking a nine to five job, this is not the place for you. Fast paced in service of their client. This is not necessarily a "con" per se - just something to consider when seeking employment. Be prepared to work and be rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Communication between the management can be improved and Better benefits for your employees.
