Useless to spend time here..simply.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you are talented then don't join, get into some workoholic place.Here, you will start like a hero and die like a villain by the mid level associates and managers with less managerial and more political skills.After few years you will realise my words when you have less salary, non valued in market skills and no where to go.Better... Plan your career as you want not as your first company throws you.Developers are thrown into testing and 5 years later, they are @5 LPA rather 12LPA That's the difference...

Pros

Nothing special it's as others ...

Cons

Only Bootlicking can help you improve rarely talent is respected.

Salary

I have 4.5 years of experience. Currently working in a mnc with very less salary, excluding allowances. Got an opportunity in CTS. The advantage here is experience is considered for package instead of giving 30 percentage from previous concern. Now in previous concern 500 - 1000 is the difference for one year and 4.5 years associate. Here 100 percentage hike given based on experience. Really that was like a dream for me. Don't know about the company culture. But for me, proper package given for the job.

Everything depends on the Project you get assigned

Everything depends on the Project you get assigned, If you 25 skills and your project has limited support scope then all your skills are gone for a toss.

Pros

relaxed life based on project

Cons

Salary hikes are bad

Good workplace for freshers

As a fresher got the opportunity and I feel it is a great avenue provided by them when other IT sectors were only looking for experienced.Work environment is good, but when we compare the compensation, it is very less in comparison to the industry

Politics are high rather than business

Faced more politics.Will not recognize talent.High drama for every issue.Promotions and ratings are not based on performance but based on the bossy managers.More of use and throw and does not value employees.They expect to work high with outdated systems, still use 4gb RAM with core duo processor.

Cons

No free meals or coupons, salary is too low, do not recommend at all

Needs to be employee centric after restructuring

Focus on employee has been shifted after restructuring has started from mid 2019. Many old folks had to move out. Also, the existing long term employees were not given the necessary focus. Compensation and promotion needs to be improved. Appraisal cycle has too much flaws. Overall job satisfaction has reduced dramatically in last 2 years.

Depends solely on team that one is part of

Company used to be good than now, morale of employees is somewhat getting hit recently. Projects depends on a person what one gets and how one takes it.Free cab is good, but again depends on project.

Pros

Variable is less compared to other service companies

Cons

Less mentoring characters, Job security
