    Worst place to be at!!

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Pros- Sometimes work from home is available
    - ample leaves available
    - good overall pay package on papers
    - extra money in support projects
    - majorly free time at work since they don't have much work offshore
    - work life balance
    - some projects get broadband reimbursements
    - best place if you are TT player.
    - great cab facility ( best thing about working here)

    ConsThere are two kinds of people: one who are hardworking and ambitious. And the others who just want to lay back and get their salaries at the end of the month. This place is *only* for the second type.
    If you are a good performer(type 1) all you get here is disappointments. You're up for surprises here if you want promotions and good quality work.
    This place can leave you at roads with no ends after 5 years of work here.
    The HR doesn't have any idea how to engage people. Completely clueless management. Just want the work done...by hook or crook. Burn your weekends or midnight candles. Get their work done anyhow so that the onshore remains happy!

    Otherwise the management is so laid back and relaxed and uninterested that u loose interest and enthusiasm to work and learn. Trust me, after you spend 5 years here...you wud fear going out for interviews unless you are lucky and get some good work anyhow.
    Nobody knows anything about business. They have a complex software system here and not many know about it. You are on your own!

    This is a heaven for the second kind of people! Although exceptions are there. Those exceptions who are grilled.
    Also,
    - extra official working hours ( that makes up for bit extra package)
    - undue favors to some special people
    - the growth aspects are weak. Internal job postings are fixed and pre-assigned.
    - your extra activities are a base for your promotions and not work (majorly)
    - 3 Months notice period
    - NO onsite for development projects.
    - Total mess at times.
    - no payouts at all for weekend support tasks from office for dev projects.
    - no bench strength.
    - highly monotonous work
    - no exposure to any new tech
    - worst training facility
    - worst and mismanaged gym.
    - work delegation is a norm here. Total politics!

    If u still want to work here...be sure to negotiate with the HR at the time of joining. Because once you get in, you are doomed for growth and learning and exposure!

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee development and growth concerns should be a priority.
    Get to work!

    Good if people wants to grow in Healthcare

    Technical Lead (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsGood if people wants to grow in Healthcare

    ConsLot of politics.
    Late night calls.
    No work life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy management are taking chemical engineers in to software industry(UnitedHealth Group) same question I have ask to my manager no answer. This is the one example where things will go just like that.

    If really employee respect is why Indians are staying late nights every day for sync up calls why can't they make Indians will stay late nights for 3 months and U.S teams will make next 3 months late night calls.

    No collaboration is the teams. Bad cultures throwing stones on other side or on other members.

    Company is good. No facilities,No employee respect.

    I won't recommend this company to anybody who is serious about carrier.
