    I have been working at Civica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Flexibility in work * Salary structure is good

    Cons

    * Low or no increment * Lengthy process for promotion(only be given when there is open position -otherwise people don't get promoted) you either have to resign or wait for years for promotions * Managers are not supportive/ false people * 3 Months notice - no matter whether the workload is there or not * People department is just puppet of management * BU has unrealistic performance expectations * They dont care about employees, in this covide pandemic they have offered job to people who left their Organization to join Civica and then they ditched them by rejecting/got their offer down. So few people got jobless because of this * They postponed increment for 6-7 months by saying that company not sure about their near term growth (when their business was already grown and hiring was in process)

    I worked at Civica full-time

    Pros

    Good work culture Work life balance

    Cons

    They revoked offer without any proper justification. Low budget projects Its compulsory for employees to sign a bond when they get offer. However it doesn't apply to the company. They can revoke your offer anytime so be aware of the same.

    I have been working at Civica full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance culture. Good support if you seek any help. Good cycle of salary payment. Some of a good policies. Different committees that will help you to learn something new.

    Cons

    Less salary especially for locals. Do not expect more in appraisals after joining in. They will anyhow put you around current local market trend based on your experience. Now the upcoming part is more interesting.. SFIA framework for the promotion - To delay the promotion of an employee even-if they are capable of their next role or having enough experience. After achieving those skills mentioned in SFIA framework for their next level such as Team Lead, many other issues you might face at the time of approving your filed competency. These process has many steps and need business unit's approval of the project in which you have been assigned. If no BU approval means no promotion. This might be positive but no more work from home culture. You might get a chance to work from home sometimes based on a valid reason and that too with your manager's approval. Almost business unit centric organization. Though they says we are one Civica, still lots of other differences you can see and feel between any other offices and India. Lucky you are if you have been assigned to a good project else I hope the lord will save you and your good smile. Last but not the least, after reading Cons, if you still want to join then my humble request to you is "don't compromise in a salary package" that you were looking for.

    I worked at Civica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great working environment - Work life balance - Supportive colleagues - Company growing day by day - In Vadodara, its one of the best company to work with - 5 days working company - Onsite opportunity - Flexible working hours - Management is supportive and helpful - Taking care of an employees just as Family. This is the best point which I like about the company - Salary on time - Increment is quite good as per the market - I would definitely recommend this company to join. It's one one the best company I had ever worked with in my career.

    Cons

    - Minor thing to concern is about the designation change process which is bit complex. It might be only from my point of view. Apart from that minor point, everything is Superb.
