    Pros

    I have worked 2.7 years in Mahindra Satyam which is newly migrated to TechM. It has good working culture and as well as supportive teams. As i have seen it is good to learn for the freshers.

    Cons

    About hikes worst rating and percentage of hikes as very poor. RM can play any games at the appraisal time.
    Percentage of hike is different for the same raters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good to share equally for percentage of hike for every raters.

    I worked at Mahindra Satyam full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) Team, the only R&D division of Satyam looking to work for futuristic projects. Worked with the elite pass-outs from NIT, BITS and some top colleges in TN.

    Cons

    Lot of partiality in the department. The ones who did cheesy jobs were retained and the real hard /smart workers were thrown out. The system details of people / head count changed as per their wish. Some of us even have collected proofs of how the location of an employee changed suddenly from north indian cities to south indian cities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was no real direction as such as with either the projects or no clear vision for the entire department in whole.
    Employers with a dream of pursuing MBAs were thrown out first during the Satyam Scam.

    Good place to earn while you learn, don't expect to get paid for your talent!

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn on the job since they hire people with roughly but not exact requirement as for the position. Everyone comes with irreverent experience and everyone learns on client projects! Some co workers are very supportive, managers tend to throw people under the bus. Training is decent not great, often given by other reluctant employees under stress from their managers.

    Cons

    Projects are very hectic since delivery managers commit to clients to bring the moon.
    Unsupportive to find projects for benched employees. Lot of politics to even get placed in projects, since delivery manager would rather keep you on bench without pay than transfer to another delivery manager with a urgent and relevant project.
    Pay is bad, no hikes for anyone. Offshore are promised on-site roles which they never deliver on, promotions and bonus hardly happen and are given to those barnacles who stick around for many years on unspoken seniority not performance basis. On-site employees are paid bare minimum wage according to Labour laws and lose out "promotions and bonus" because offshore appraisals are frozen while on-site!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where to start Managers are incompetent and poisonous. Constant feeling of left hand doesn't know what right hand is doing. Need to be proactive to retain all talent and reward satisfactorily, not negotiate bonus with the employees who threaten to quit.

    Very horrible management which can't be mended as they are more like tenured govt employees who get paid for performance or non performance. Extremely callous and toxic attitude.
