    I worked at Mahindra Satyam full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A significant talent drought leads to opportunities for even the most mediocre talents.

    Cons

    Very little and very unstable existing business. Management mantra seems to be self-belief will deliver results - this faith based vision is more apt for the 80s, not the modern business environment. Terrible investment decisions in inorganic plays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.

    Current Employee - Pre-Sales in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros – Opportunity to take on new positions (only for Indians)
    If an employee (is an Indian) and project ends, they can be picked up by another account without being fired

    Cons

    Cons – Management doesn't communicate well - huge veil of secrecy between India and US
    Some unethical practices - particularly use of sleezy outsourced recruiters that will promise you anything and tell you anything to get you to sign on
    Employee gets 'dropped' into positions without any mentoring or training
    Peers and management favor others with Indian heritage and believe they're smarter than other cultures - baboons in suits
    Management makes a lot of unrealistic promises to customers then expects front-line employees to figure it out on their own
    Indian management throws other employees under bus to make themselves look good
    Not a lot of teaming or collaboration to meet common goals - employees try to take credit for others contributions while going to great lengths to fingure out how to do as little as possible
    Onsite employees outside of India are completely disconnected from the company - which is mainly in India
    Training and events all held on IST timezone - no attempt to support other countries or timezones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior Management – If your serious about breaking into the US market then you need to ensure Indian employees who are customer facing in the US adapt their business practices to be consistent with American practices. Also need to treat employees that are non-Indian the same as Indian employees - at very least don't appear so blatantly racist.

    Current Employee - Project Lead in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam

    Pros

    a) Peers are good, don't expect a lot of goodness from senior management.

    b) Some level of transparency still exists. A lot of transparency existed in old Satyam.

    c) Very good Skilled & Intelligent employees around you, therefore there is opportunity to learn a lot of things.

    d) Learning Center in Satyam is very good and you get to learn a lot of free things, which you wont get to learn in any organization.

    Cons

    a) Management (one level above you and all higher levels) don't care about you at all. What you are doing, whether you are satisfied, dissatisfied, your concerns etc.

    b) Apraisals is not satisfactory to some extent.

    c) You have to really be stricter and smarter and clever to get your dues and what you want from the higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to proactively get yourself more involved with the juniors rather than having them leave. Remember your job is to take care of both employees and the client......I think you have forgotten the employees totally. Get your act together before a lot of good skilled labor gets away.
