    Good for Freshers,Bad for Laterals

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice campus,
    Good Banking,Insurance,Automotive project

    ConsNot good for laterals,
    No good compensation as compared to other companies..only few bugs for over time work
    No value of laterals.
    14-15 hours per day work even office time is 9 to 6
    HR management listen to only higher mgmt...No value for employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould respect to there employee also.
    Should follow give & take...as It takes two to tango...
    Higher Mgmt should support there employee....they are not for use & through
    Onsite team should be supported by there higher mgmt when needed.
    Managers should listen there employee & understand there problem.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
