    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Bangalore

    Pros

    The company offers good facilities like cab to and fro work. It also have a well decked pantry stock and food options in the cafeteria for free.
    It is a fairly liberal workplace in terms of attire, interactions and others.
    The office provides a nice environment.

    Cons

    Outdated technologies often like ATG, and others which may not be what a fresh grad may want to work on to further his or her career.
    Hardly algorithmically challenging work, which would make one solve real technology problems. The problem solving is more for business problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need good work if you hire from top colleges.

    Pros

    Front runner in all aspects and volume base business. Cautious move for 100% Presence in India appreciated, Aggressive in opportunity tapping.

    Cons

    Retrenchment and unplanned restructuring, B'coz of size and volume certain areas of business are truly neglected. Frequent changes in leadership does not allow strategies to show results from grass root.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May suggest some alternative employment within the company to the effected associates retrenched due to business restructuring of any part of the business.
