    I worked at Tech Mahindra full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good infrastructure. Young Employees. Flexible Timing.

    Cons

    Terrible HR Policy. Terrible Salary. Non Serious Fresher induction. Expect you to work and learn on the job without training you properly.

    Project Managers think they are almighty and talk rudely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What is the problem to give a person posting near hometown initially if you have vacancies available and projects available.
    Ask the HR to listen to employees properly,even freshers. Not brush them off like dirt.

    At least give some proper salary when you torture freshers like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more transparent with Processes and do not make unnecessary Policy changes every 2 months.
    Increase weekend allowance and ensure investments are continuously done on People and not in Companies.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Tech Mahindra

    Pros

    Training is not that good...It is too specific to techm...so you don't really learn a lot...
    promotions are quite slow..you will get appreciated for your work everytime(assuming you are good at it) but your salary, post, responsibilities nothing really changes that fast..not a place to be in if you want to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Office timings are bad...the transport, atleast in mumbai is bad...just one fixed time for the bus...if you ever get late you will have to come to office yourself...and if you have to come to office on weekends the compensation is much less than the amount you spend on travel and to top it all there is nothing other than biscuits in the canteen. and the locality is not that great to have some decent restaurants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Improve your training
    2. Make sure to repair the ceilings so that we don't have to sit with plastic sheets on stuck to the roof to prevent water from falling on our desks. There have been instances where we have kept dustbins on our desk to collect the rain water.
    3. Do something about the mice. Try to keep them away from our cubicles and the canteen! Please!

    Poor Resource management and low career growth with very less salary hike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From their own perspective they are doing right things to fat their balance sheet (Acquisitions, cost cuttings, denying salary hikes and promotions)... severe lack of inspiring leadership especially at top levels.
