      Don't come here for Embedded Career

      Pros

      1. Salary given is on par with best in industry. 2. Good amount of leaves and insurance. 3. Job security. 4. Good variable( It will change in FY 21-22, will be halved from current form) 5. Since it's an OEM, deadlines can be flexible.

      Cons

      1. People don't want to learn and want to remain on legacy embedded SW. 2. People in India do lot of show off via events like LETS which is just spitting out work you did last year. 3. SIRD has been disaster, people at lower span were not given roles and responsibilities. 4. Favouritism, results in people doing mediocre work getting preference and promotion. 5. Undue pref. given to IP where I have seen junk IP's getting filed. 6. They don't listen to internal feedback given by employees while if a product line give the same feedback, they realise the folly. 7. Indian centre does lots of show-off, hope American management has realised( or already realised) the same and moving work to Mexico. 8. Even if you don't do work, 10 years can easily be passed before one more re-org comes. 9. Parking is a major pain point in T14, be ready for high paying/Contractual employees scratching your motorbike as they came late to office and move your already parked motor bike to create space for parking their own bike. If you have car, coming late is a sin as there will be no parking space. 10. Dull interiors in Tower 14. 11. Managers try to do internal image management. 12. SIRD has benefited companies like BCG who did this whole thing and earned huge fees with the CEO.

      Pros

      1) Company has some good policies for people. 2) Pays good according to market. 3) Internal job postings can help you to get to a desired role.

      Cons

      1. Company is full of bad people specially in management. 2. 3 months of notice period. 3. Even HR is somewhat biased to senior managers and if you take the issues to HR then they inform this to the respective person. 4. Rubbish rule of counting of ODC time. When you are inside the office the count is considered. If you go out for any reason that much time is not considered. 5. Typical mechanical based rules are applied to software professionals.

      Good Work-Life Balance

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. You have a good work life balance. 2. Special care is taken to make the environment inclusive. Your thoughts are respected. 3. Good pay as per industry standard along with other benefits. 4. Adopting to newer technologies is a focus. 5. Generally the bonus is more than 100% (since it depends on many factors including company revenue) 6. You are encouraged to learn new technologies and trainings are provided.

      Cons

      Not much that I can think of, but the food in canteen can be a bit better. Also since covid wfh culture has worked, WFH can be made mandatory even when things starts opening up in future rather than asking us to be ready to come to base location when things starts getting better.

      Pros

      Excellent company to settle down and concentrate on quality work. Employer really thinks about the employees. Highly ethical company with huge technology investments. Suitable for anybody seeking for cutting edge technology work.

      Cons

      No normalization in hiring. Same grade can be offered to 4 yrs experienced employee and a 10 yrs experienced employee working on same technology. No onshore opportunities as such due to co-located operating model.
