    Slave at a good place

    Lead Engineer (Current Employee) Noida

    ProsNice work culture. Everybody is working and cant abscond. So you get a good feel that you are not the only one caught in work. Able to do lots of work by end of day. Good processes and a resource is part of project for entire life cycle, lean phase and hectic one. Good appraisals and nice benefits like transport and comp day compensations.
    Good place to register patents and stuff. Revolutionary change in work domain. You are closer to drivers and usb communication or networking paradigm. Your bonus is yours without any question. Trusted managers and laborious leads.

    ConsIf you reach office after 10, its a leave or a def(2 defs are OK in 3 months; def = 6 hours). Complete 8 hours inside office and 9 hours between first and last swipe. What to do in 1 hour between that? Anyways the bus will start 9.5 hours after they arrived. So you actually have 1.5 hours of nothing, ultimately you will work in them if you dont come from nearby place and want bus to travel 30 kms to home.
    If u book a cab, do 10 hours inside office and 11 hours between first and last swipe. Kudos.
    You cant lunch/snack inside office. Sit for 10 hours if you want cab!!! Cmon I am a human. Cab will leave me home in perhaps 90 mins. Let me take a 5 min break and dont count it for once. And do I get any extra pay for clocking 10 hours?If i reached office at 9:35 i cant book a cab of 8:30, i will have to go to 10:15 pm cab. All so in the name of safety and security? Where is it in this case?
    Please hire some office boys and understand you are no more a 300 people company but a 2500 people one. You need a helpdesk ticket system for logistics and admin tasks.Managers have no say infront of Koreans. If they said it, its over.
    IT is pathetic. You cant gmail or any other mail. You cant even google if you are on Mac. US President approves your internet access over mac.A VP is concerned about your internet access. He himself approves it.
    If you lose a device, its cost is cut from your salary and warning letter is given.

    Sinusoidal wave ... very high or very low !!

    Lead Engineer (Former Employee)

    Pros- Very advance in technology
    - Very secure job ... they dont fire anyone in any case
    - Better pay structure, decent benefits
    - Brand

    Cons- Full of morons, particularly at the middle management layer
    - Work culture is dictated by no of hrs worked, not by quality.
    - Dynamically changing requirements, not a company to make long term carrier with
    - Great on site policy is now screwed up ... No benefits there.

    Advice to Senior Management- If you want great people to stay longer, make sure you give such an atmosphere.
    - Working on weekends never ever a good sign, it just shows poor planning
    - There is a difference between running a mill and maintain a R&D firm
