    I have been working at Xchanging full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Often interesting work - right at the heart of the London Insurance Market.

    Cons

    Often tried to do too much, with too few people and with not enough financial reward. Have lost a lot of good people over the years and not replaced their knowledge. This looks like continuing now part of DXC - and with the additional drag of now being just a small part of a much larger organisation - with all the new processes and bureaucracy that come with it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let size and bureaucracy inhibit an ability to be agile and responsive to customer needs - and value the knowledge and skills of your employees more.

    I have been working at Xchanging full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work location. Feels like you are in the centre of plush greenland.
    Salary is higher than most local companies.
    Great work to learn new things in the technology world.
    CEO is always willing to help and open to talk to everyone.
    Few management people are great to talk to and help you to grow. But not all

    Cons

    Too many to list -
    1. No matter how right you are, you can’t say anything to your manager. He is the ultimate boss even if he is completely wrong.
    2. Food sucks big time in the cafetaria. The guy at cafetaria is innovating on new dishes. But quality sucks.
    3. You are a slave to the client. Even if client asks you to dance nude. You will have to. The company's management or manager will not stand for you.
    4. Company management only knows to speak. They can't fulfil any of the commitments. Even they don't have control over salary hike of the employees. Many people leave the company because they don't get the salary hike on time. And worst part is that if you resign and next month the hike comes for other employees. It is pure cheating as employee is still entitled to get his/her arrears for the days he has worked. You are told when you resign that even if there is a salary hike happening in your notice period, You will not get the hike. This is purely cheating.
    5. You can only survive if you are a Yes master to ur manager. In simple words, if you can lick your manager. You are an exceptionally performing employee.
    6. No clear vision or strategy for the company. You are like a sheep in herd. You come, you work, you get paid. Don’t bother about tomorrow. They company is also not bothered about its tomorrow. They say, they are part of two big companies. But nobody has seen one company doing anything at all. We just use the name in our signatures... ha ha.
    7. Townhalls are conducted as if management is doing a favour on employees. They give only vague and unrealistic aspirations. If asked about commitments from previous townhalls, they won't have an answer.
    8. No idea on what other departments are doing. Absolutely no interconnectivity between departments. Everybody works in silos.
    9. Some HODs or Senior management people behave as if they own the department and the people too. Shouting and screaming has become part of their DNA. Also, just by ridiculing an ethnicity or race, you are creating more trouble for yourself outside the office.
    10. Last, but very important to consider - Forget that you have a family if you work here. You are made to work late nights and on weekends and holidays without any proper compensations. And dare you don't come to office when your manager asks you to, even if you have a sick child at home or its your anniversary. Forget everything and rush to office. Else for entire year your performance will be rated low.

    Advice to Management

    Set the vision for the company. Communicate that vision with clear strategy and roadmap to achieve.
    Don't give vague and unrealistic aspirations. People get everything. They are not novice as much as you think they are.
    Stop treating people as money making robots. Once deployed at client and you forget about them.
    Most importantly stand with your employee. Give him/her confidence that company will support you. Don't just throw the employee to the lion and watch the show.
