    Pros

    Novell India has a good brand value outside. I was very excited to join this company.Whoever i talked to had the same opinion about the company. I went into the company thinking that this would be the my last company or i would settle down here.

    Cons

    All things went for a toss after joining the company.

     There is nothing called work culture or work life balance. It is a Service company disguised as a Product company. The Manager would interfere in task estimations every sprint.He would struck down our estimates and come up with his own estimates.And hold team members accountable for not delivering the tasks on time.Initially i went along with his estimates as i was new to the tasks.Then when i started standing my ground, he completely turned around calling me incompetent.

    The KT that i recieved from a junior was a Farce. There are no documents for anything and u r not allowed to go and have an open discussion with people who know things. And people who are in the company for a long time are very closed and have a 'I know evrything attitude".

    At the end of 4 months of joining , the Manager started blackmailing that he would withhold my confirmation as he was not satisfied with my performance as a Team Lead.He was ok with my technical performance, but wanted me to take the lead of a big Team of just 1 member.I took the criticism constructively and told him that i would be in a position to put my view points across only when i have a pretty good understanding of the product and i was not the one who would express comments jsut for the sake of it.

    He would then come up at the end of evry Friday and ask the team to work over the weekend and finish up the task for the sprint.This continued almost evry sprint. This put my work life balance for a toss with even my family complaining that i was not giving sufficient time for them.

    The final blow came when the Manager handed me over a letter saying that my probationary period would be extended and my services might be terminated if the company was not satisfied with my performance. This despite so much of honest hard work put in understanding and completing the tasks. I dont say that i am an expert on some skill, but i am not that dumb either that you could hand me over this letter saying that company does not need you.

    Then i decided that enough is enough and my skills and experience has been insulted and disrespected here. This is when i decided to move out of the company. I will never forget the amount of insult and the mental trauma that i went through in this company throughout my life.

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for the skills and experience that professionals bring to the company. Do not hire people if you feel they do not match up to "Novell Standards" and try to kick them out. It is a waste of time for you and waste of time for the Professional.
