    I have been working at SDL full-time

    Pros

    I am working at SDL Bangalore. SDL looks into the real potential of the team members and leverages the best of them. This helped me and I am sure helped many other employees to realize their real potential and grow through the career. The work culture in SDL is really great, feels really comfortable to work and I have seen my productivity increasing day by day. SDL focuses on leveraging the best of skills. The senior management is really transparent and communicates well to keep all the employees are up-to-date with all the updates, strategy etc.

    Cons

    Nothing that i can think of yet....

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going....

    Pros

    According to me, SDL is best place to work. Environment and the infrastructure of SDL is suitable for work and career growth. SDL also provide the responsibilities to their employees according to their abilities, so they can perform batter.

    Cons

    Relatively understaffed which means you have more responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at SDL full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Amazing and supportive senior managers and colleague.
    2. Wonderful working environment, zero office politics.
    3. Good training system for familiarization with PMJ work structure.
    4. Good employee engagement, HR (India) is pretty good at it.
    5. Satisfying work life balance.

    Cons

    1. Salary structure is not as per market standard.
    2. Discrimination between offshore and onshore PJMs.
    3. Shaky alignment of reporting structure if a resource has duel reporting system (onshore and offshore managers).
    4. Ambiguity in annual review system.

    Advice to Management

    It’s a fantastic and enriching experience to work here in SDL (India), but higher management needs to understand that an employee also needs salary to have his/her bread and butter for living. One cannot expect to cashew in return by giving peanuts. If the salary structure is as per market standard it would reduce employee’s dissatisfaction tremendously.
    Secondly, there needs be equality in treating between offshore and onshore PJMs, as both of them are part of the same one SDL.
