    Good Banking,Insurance,Automotive project

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Should 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.

    Pros

    BNFS is really good and organized. Good learning experience. Since the client is very process oriented same is hence practiced as well.

    Cons

    Most of the Middle/Senior management think of you as a threat if you start asking questions. They need people as work horses. RLT is the hell of all and full of pseudo intellectuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think...why all the talent leaves the company even though you have world class facilities.

    Cons

    lot of politics, senior mgmt is political and does not address issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    senior mgmt should be more fair than biased and see from holistic point of view of entire organisation instead of seeing who will work for longer time and promotions should also be based on talent than who will work for them
