    Excellent job stability since they do not over hire and then fire employees. They try to retain employees to best of their ability by moving around teams and projects rather than making them redundant. Senior management works very closely with individual employees. Very open culture.

    Use of lot of proprietary software.

    I worked at Symphony Teleca full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    free food coupons, cab facilities, some GOC are good.
    Harman brand may be but Harman connected services is totally different with Harman International.

    Cons

    Only brand name associated with, that's it. It's still symphony teleca and you won't get benefits what harman employees getting, You're into service base.
    They hired for project and put us on bench for some times, later they could not find project and fired few of us. I would have join other company.
    They're just cost cutting and reducing the bench strengths by firing people. Even in bench you won't get call for projects. TCS, Accenture and infy are far better to handle bench.

    Advice to Management

    Please have some professionalism for bench people who got fired without reason within 1.5-2 months. You must give 3 months time to look for an opportunity inside.

    Pros

    None.
    Ohh only one by the way, you can be a very good politician if you join this company and learn the way team leaders behave and make rules.

    Cons

    It used to be a lot better when it was Aditi. But after the multiple acquisition, and specifically because of Symphonly Teleca merge, the company lost its core values and ethics. Most of the good people left after merge.

    Don't join this company if you expect a fair HR or management team. HR is always biased by the senior management people and would never play fair.

    They have a compensation slab and even when you work very hard and excel and get 1 rating, you would still get a very low hike/compensation. And the reasons they would cite is this slab.

    Worst company, worst management, no good technical people to look upto. All are running in the rat race to gain money and kick others that comes in their way even if its again their core ethics and principles.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be fair. And don't be biased with the senior management. Their is a reason they call you "HR". I am not asking you to be employee friendly(a thing that you can never achieve), all I want is be fair and take unbiased decisions.
