Ok good for a early career job or late career retirement side income job. The pace and flexibility was great. The group was good. Management tries and improving but sometimes out of touch with the actual engineering work scope and time required to do the work. Overall still good for either one of the two above options to come to this company.
I liked what I worked on
Working there always felt like Wednesday Addams at summer camp in Addams Family Values. God help you if your face doesn't fit. If your outward energy and enthusiasm don't meet the of that of the moral majority then you might as well just kiss your job goodbye. It's not enough to be a decent hard-working person but you have to pledge allegiance to the micromanaging happy clappy "let's-do-this-guys" over the top americanised workplace culture. You were always presented with the illusion of choice but this was only part of a tick-box exercise for the employer. They have an agenda and you aren't a significant part of it; You might as well be part of the office furniture. Communication was terrible. They are great at wanting something from you but terrible when it comes to doing anything for you. Arbitrary orders abound. Woe betide those who question the order of things! Common sense is traded under the counter at the tavern of the office water fountain. In other words, common sense is not appreciated unless it coincides with the company agenda. The job isn't hard but the incessant micromanaging undermines confidence and is seriously distracting. Micromanaging might be absolutely delightful for anyone with the IQ of a worm infested turnip but for grown adults it is patronising. They pay lip-service to mental health but is definitely not respected on a serious level. Admittedly there is some cosmetic appreciation of mental health as with all the other tick-box exercises.
Work life balance wasn't too bad.
This is a great place to gain experience when starting your career. You are always learning something new. They will usually assign you to different projects after a couple months. I do jot recommend staying here long term however. Their compensation is very lack luster.
Great work environment
Unappreciative, underpayed, expectations are for you to learn every job possible, with no/minimal pay increase
Management here is so unappreciative, they expect you to go way beyond your job description and expand into other positions without a pay raise. In drafting they often require mandatory overtime due to high volume of jobs, but they don’t want to hire more people because they won’t make as much revenue. They continue to try to hire young unmotivated workers so they can pay them significantly less and not hear complaints, which does not help the workload for the experienced because experienced people are expected to train the new hires while also maintaining their work output. If you’re a field technician, you’ll barely be in office, always traveling, lots of OT but again it’s very under appreciated and under paid . You are expected to travel to different cities to work with people from other branches of Cyient that are being paid more than you, when you are the one who is training them on how to do the work. Truly Unfair. The turnover is high and they can’t seem to find good people at all. They complain when you use PTO because they don’t have enough people staffed to handle workload. Management here wants to give you enough knowledge and training to do only so much, they do not want to give you enough industry knowledge to realize you can go to another company and get treated better. They use people like pawns to increase their revenue and make management more money. Not to mention the boss’s husband gets to work from home “for covid safety” while everyone else is mandated to work in office. Poor and unfair treatment all around.

This company puts on a good show but lies all the time. They are all about offshoring work, even when the client does not want it. The turn over rate in the Erie office is bad. No training no real structure. And they will pay you as little as possible and want you to do A-Z. The manager in Erie is incompetent and has no business being in that position.
unethical and they will lie to your face.
It's a great place to work but you never can get settled in at one place for too long. You will move to whatever project is the busiest and the workload constantly changes.
No change in PTO no matter how long you've worked there. Alot of work and not enough employees
If you want a little experience as such like one year experience and leave, and no options in the market, this is the last one which comes with torture. All the best for it. The old management with experience of 25 plus years in the same company run by countrymen who do not know simple English to address the crowd, they dont encourage the younger generation ideas and fully countrymen mentality men/women around.
Only one pro, the chairmen policy of not terminating a fulltime employee for a simple reasons.
Pay scale less, every year expecting Hike(peanuts) but the cuttings would be more, By EOM you wont notice any increase in income for every year, Management led by unqualified persons.
No values. Lot of politics. very less pay. more wastage. Prolonged working hrs. They don't follow corporate norms. Top management not bother about waste. Unnecessary spending on few things and waste lot of money. Company means employees but Cyient never thought like this. Cyient gives preference to few people. Marketing manager's failure. Real talented people won't encourage. Huge politics. No ethics at all. HR no response and simply escape.
every thing is paid. No free.
Prolonged working hours
A good job to get into the industry if you have limited experience. Hours are somewhat flexible and you can come in later/stay later to leave early. Some supervisors are much more understanding than others. Some teams have substantially more work/stress than others. I've seen people work 1 out of 8 hours a day for 6 months straight. I've seen others work 60 hours every week for a year. Depends on the contract. They do have employee engagement events and lunch-ins. But to only have 10 days or so of accrued PTO (6 hours accrued a month), and well below average pay and insurance, it's just not worth staying. They were losing something like 30 people a month to much better offers. Never had a review or raise in 2 years there, and then they laid off people with absolutely no warning in COVID.
low stress, flexible hours, decent lower management
poor pay, no raises, low PTO, poor insurance
The type of work friends on the project, it is hard to find some good work at Cyient. People from the level of senior design engineer don't do any work. There is no recognition given to your work. You will be paid much less compared to market. There won't be any promotions. There won't be any growth. No proper hikes given. Most people regret after joining Cyient especially the campus hires or those who start their career with Cyient.
It's a service based company where we support client like boeing, bambardier, triumph, Collins,prat and Whitney Doing job in such a company will be help you learning things but the state of Job is very uncertain. You may loose job at any point of time
