    Pros

    Flexible hours, plus I have a good manager but not everyone has it

    Cons

    Skewed management views, poor hikes, variable component in salary is a huge amount and only depends on company's share price and revenue not individual performance, only interested in mining existing accounts and not look for new clients and new geographies.

    Advice to Management

    reduce variable component from CTC as you never give 100% to the employees

    Pros

    Company premises is good for young couples which they enjoy at any time...

    Cons

    Its a testing company and they cant think beyond that. They want profit without any investment. Management people have huge salaries but they concentrate on getting more salaries than growing business. Lower band and grade people are always target and freshers career is always at stake.

    Advice to Management

    Be mature, sensible and polite.
    Remove non performing executives especially in ERP SAP practice. SAP contributes less than 1% of the total revenue so better close this practice as you have not grown in this area since past 10 years.

    Will get the Visa - immediately (specially H1B)

    No Process. Non of the Managers aware of Process + Project Management. Even if you resign they showcase that as Termination as the # of employee's resignation is very much. No ethics/professionalism at any level of the company right from Middle Management to Upper.

    Advice to Management

    Better shut down the shop!!!

    Poor HR policies.

    For fresher's: if u r getting selected by this company please don't trust blindly and go for other companies coz in the end u vl b in a big trouble.

    Advice to Management

    To HR and thw management,

    Leave the company..u shuld b shamed of working in such kind of company.
