    SVC IT dev Sr. Assoc 2

    Svc IT Dev Program Senior Associate II (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsGood learning opportunity, good work-life balance, lots of activities happening like visiting schools for social cause, etc.

    ConsAll the appreciations does not turn into appraisal or hike because of changing HR policies,
    no onsite opportunity.. even if anyone gets it (only at grade IG and above .. SVC IT dev Sr. Assoc 2 being ID grade), it not more than 15 days

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management should re-look into HR policies that in some cases do injustice to the employees.. like the policy for promotion.. promotion from grade ID to IE will happen only if someone has completed 1 year as on 31st Jan.. because of this freshers who completed 1 year got the promotion and hike but the employees who have 3+ years exp but less than 1 year in Dell (as on 31Jan) were still on lesser grade.

    Its always exciting to work with Dell with a good leadership team across the globe.

    Applications Management Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsThe assistance from management is the key factor which will help individuals grow considering the individual development plan. People need not to switch companies to work into different role, where as there are good internal job options available to help individuals grow considering their career growth plan.

    ConsThere are no opportunities to move across the regions, which is considered to be an important factor these days. The opportunities for training and development are less. Even for the hard working people it is impossible to expect an onsite opportunity. This is a highest backlog due to which people leave the organization in terms to fly other countries by switching companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in new options of onsite opportunities helping worthy individuals get required visibility. It is always valid to give required attention to the key people by providing them necessary support and explore options.

    Great place to work

    Finance Consultant (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsVery flexible, US culture, Fun. US managers are terrific to work with.

    ConsPay. Also we had a set of lady colleagues who misused the policy benefits to down play the performing candidates citing behavioral issues to the HR and management. Be wary of Indian managers - there are rotten apples.
