    Pros

    None none none none none (wanted five words to be able to submit this page)

    Cons

    Myopic Leadership, Senseless work environment especially in GSS Bangalore, Herd Mentality - no chance of any growth prospects unless you are one of the "favoured ones" Forget growth, professional development or perks if you are anything but a Tamilian/Malayalee/South Indian.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Industry leading technology makes technical work here enjoyable. Time-off policies are quite standard.. Trainings could be handled better. Technology is the only pro here IMO.

    Cons

    Lacks a good leadership team. Managers don't work with trust and commitment, and have no managerial capabilities whatsoever. Managers are fostering an example of furthering their own vested interests rather than company's values and vision. Frequent changes (sometimes reverse) in the organization structure causes a lot disturbance and insecurity. Even the facilities department (outsourced) are indifferent to the employee concerns; and less said about management, the better.

    Advice to Management

    Start considering the impact on the engineers while taking lofty and ambitious decisions. as they are the ones who got the product where it is today, not the managers.

  11. Very good company to work
