    Worked for 2 years as Software Engineers

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsNothing good to say. Few colleagues were good.

    ConsHere comes the big list. The quality of management is very poor. The application or project which you work is nearly 40 years old. If you work here, you will end up fixing bugs for entire life with no progress in technical area. Indian employees are treated like slaves, and never think of work life balance at all.
    Important thing is, the CTC will be high, but take home will be very less. So advise is ask for better gross income.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease reshape the organisation structure. Make compensation clear and trasparent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
