      Good organisation to work. - RBS Account

      Pros

      I have earlier also worked in a body shopping (consultancy firms) company and in comparison to that Virtusa is far better organisation. This is not a mid or small size consultancy firm. It is big and well managed firm that gives benefits to employees just like any other big organisation: Currently i am working in RBS account as Lead Consultant and sharing my experience. Pros: 1. Salary comes on time 2. No major work pressure from Virtusa's side in addition to client's work 3. Dedicated Manager, HR and chain of command to report and resolve your issues in effective way. (This is generally not there in most body shopping companies) 4. Good growth and opportunities 5. Proper channel for information flow 6. Health benefits (Covid support). In pandemic situtation, most companies abandoned their employees but Virtusa provided help through Covid support policies. 7. Skill update programs to learn new technologies. 8. Monthly Internet allowance

      Cons

      The only thing i found as con is no financial support to employees for work from home. Example: Many companies have given financial aid to employees to purchase WFH accessories like Headphone, office table and chair etc. Not only furniture, even electronic items needs to be compensated eg. headphone, mobile etc, because the usage of mobile has increased and generally employee has to use personal mobile for various office apps connectivity.

      Good place with high work pressure

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Exposure to a lot of latest technologies. Good onsite opportunities and learnings with direct customer interactions. Senior Manager has flexibility in running the projects as they are responsible for P&L. Each large business unit has a dedicated TAG team to support. PMO team and other support verticals are well structured.

      Cons

      High work pressure as most of the projects have to deliver a lot within less time. High attrition rate adds more pressure. There is politics at workplace but it is minimal compared to other places.

      Pros

      1. They initially offers good salary package however that includes variable pay, gratuity deduction, superannuation and PF so overall you will get very less in-hand salary. 2. I can see emails are circulating to help people in Covid situation. 3. Work life balance totally depends on your project... for me it was good.

      Cons

      1. No Salary hike. Promotion is far away. 2. 70-80% variable will be paid out but that completely depends on your billing and performance. So if your billing is <85% so it variable pay will be ZERO. 3. Very less projects limited to RBS and no scope of moving to other projects. 4. RBS projects has legacy systems and it will limit your technical skills. 5. No manager reviews/ discussions they just give the yearly rating themselves. 6. No festival gifts, No Rewards and Recognitions, No Bonus... All the festival celebration ends up with broadcast email. 7. Salary deduction during pandemic. 8. I don't see any culture/values in this company.

      Pros

      One of the best reason I would say is virtusa love innovation it gives you ample of opportunities if you are a learner and you want to learn and work new technologies, The company always encourage you to do certification and increase you technical skills , There is a work life balance and most of the managers avail it .

      Cons

      The HR policy it's the worst I have seen among IT companies the HR themselves don't know what is happening in the company they work like government offices .The worst part it they won't listen you they won't tell u why you are not eligible for hike and promotion even if you have outstanding quarter rating and manager rating and good client review. The carrier comes to halt you the company culture is you enter in the position of engineer or any work there for 3 4 years and when you come out of the company nothing has changed you are still and engineer and there is not even a single peny hike given...no bonus no gift on festivals nothing.
