    Pros

    1. Exposure to latest technologies
    2. Flexible timing
    3. Supporting colleagues
    4. Located in heart of the city

    Cons

    1. Client driven projects
    2. Politics and Blame game at mid and high level management
    3. No job security
    4. Appraisal system is opaque
    5. Disconnected HR system
    6. Employee unfriendly policies
    7. Lack of professional trainings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure job security and win good long term accounts. Work towards building existing Accounts.

    Sale teams inability has become an open secret and turning out to be fatal to company's growth.

    Hopefully this is being addressed, else it will affect the nervous system of the organisation.

    I worked at Xchanging full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Xchanging UK got good brand value.
    Decent salary structure

    Cons

    Highly unsafe for india. Cambridge acquisition It division showing very less revenue , no new projects
    all 10 or 15 years projects running in support mode gives some revenue
    if you are lower grwde and middle management , then you are at high risk. You may ger sacked any time.
    All new projects runs for very short span. Recently heard 2 or 3 major accounts are getting closed. So many of them might come to bench.
    No big projects in pipeline.
    They try to invest in analytics , IOT But they invest in high profile canditates but no investment on tools, technology, processes for the same.
    for advertising they have cmmi level 5 , iso in all aspects processes are pathetic. This will become extra burden for project management rather than helping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply span of control to senior management first as I could see one of the account has equal no. Of senior management to equal no. Of team members result nothing. Core work people 7 senior management are 10 people.

    Appoint a sales team to bring the leads.

    Make solutioning team much more stronger creating lot more POC.every time when you go for client visit try to present new stream of poc to tap significant business opportunities

    There are tools scattered around, not properly utilized. No proper tool obtained and validated for Roi

    Getting lot more certifications also will help only if above are satisfied.

     Otherwise ROI ON sales, solutioning and certifications will be 0.

    Even I noticed many od the good people moved out or pushed out because of internal personal vengeance which is not noticed by management

    I worked at Xchanging full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice and challenging work
    Provides training
    Onsite opportunity for few
    Good for graduates

    Cons

    Salary for graduates is in the range of 5000 Rs ( 100 $ ) per month
    No Canteen, hence no breakfast or snacks
    No access to sites like linkedin or any professional sites
    No Lunch or Dinner facility( except when new people join and are in training)
    No Canteen around 1KM radius
    NON AC operated Office, hence hell lot of mosquitoes for night shift. On weekends, you will be stormed by entire office mosquitoes( of all floors).
    No work life balance. Will have to work only in fixed shift timings as it is located in a remote location( 15 kms from city). Worst part is that building is located 1 Km away from Shimoga Bhadravati Main road. Hence you need walk for 20 mins when coming by own transport.
    Office is next to a chemical factory and you get horrible smell as if you are in hell.
    Will put you on bond for atleast 2 to 3 years even if you are experienced ( bond of 40000 to 60000 Rs, and you need to submit all of your marks cards).
    FAKE picture of this office is given to UK office clients and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for your employees, provide basic facilities like food and then think of innovation
    Keep standards in salary
