    Pros

    Good package and transport Subsidised food.

    Cons

    There is no proper rules and they says transition is going on from sigma to merck and it will take time may b an year. No proper leavers( 4 sick leaves and 22 annual). How come four leaves in an it? Strick dress code like school, even for in short HR will question u. And Need to maintain 9 hours like a service based company. While offering they will say so many and nothing is proper inside. No leaves, strict timings,...

    Advice to Management

    Try to do transition as people are already affecting here. Maintaining hours is such a bad idea to restrict employee to stay at office if if no work. And 4 sick leaves is a wild decision.

      Cons

      Lot of politics in software division, Manager neither have management experience nor management education, based on politics mostly IT dept is running, No growth, if you know how to do polish to manager then you can promote. no transparency in team, HR listing to manager only. No body will listen to junior employee. M-connected Technical head not have any technical experience. very bad situation in team.

      Advice to Management

      Create good team environment, hire expert in Software, who can guide to team, don't promote well wisher only based on caste, religion and sex.
