very bad and struggling experience.

Project Lead (Current Employee)
Hyderābād

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than a year

Prosi heard lot from my friends about this company. ideally i didnt find anything good in this company.

Consmanagement cares only about billing. hr are biased towards employers. a person if non billable will be moved to something which he has never ever worked on just for the sake of billing. They dont care about the values of employee what they care is billing and money.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good for a start, which I got!

Software Developer (Current Employee)
Chennai

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than a year

Pros- Training program for fresh graduates helps get a good start
- I got into a good project / client, but this may not be true for all ppl

Cons- Not much employee delight (say not even good coffee machines)
- Not much career progress / compensation revision after 2-3 years of start
- Absolutely no concern to former employees, I have been writing a plethora of emails to get my PF (provident fund) withdrawn but haven't got even a reply!

Advice to Senior Management- Be communicative to employees. Employees should know it through internal mails regarding salary revision, appraisals, etc, not after it is written in the news papers
