    Thanks for your review, there is a lot going on at NTT DATA UK at the moment as we grow rapidly and invest in our future. It's great to know that we have so many employees that genuinely love working here. It's not perfect but we are going in the right direction.

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + Telco Leaders - ability to pull on Global thought leadership and technical innovation in telecommunications thanks to strong links with parent and sister companies. + Growing - it's possible to become a "go to" person in emerging technology as there are so few technical experts. + Training - there's a lot of opportunity to go on external courses and to come aware with recognised certifications. There's also a big emphasis on sharing what you've learnt. + Flexibility - there are those that have been in their roles for years and those change on a quarterly basis; however this isn't always by choice.

    Cons

    - Telco Only - there's not much attraction for clients to go with NTT DATA over competitors; therefore the contracts that are secured, especially the meatier and more interesting ones, are nearly always Telco. - Political - senior managers' opinions weigh a lot more than they do elsewhere. You won't be able to get by through doing your job well: you will need to seek the limelight of the senior team. Working can become very difficult once any single senior manager is not enamoured with you. - Autocratic - often management talk about a flat management structure, but it's very hierarchical: the huge number of "ranks" illustrates this well. You will get many senior experienced hires that are not downward looking and who are highly sales focused, which does not create a good atmosphere. This is further complicated by an ineffective split in the company itself. - Lack of Flexibility - there are those that choose to be in the role for the long term or the short term, but, given the lack of marketshare, the risk of reassignment is far higher. This is not a fault of the company, as it's a consequence of its small size, but it's something to be aware of.

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Young dynamic work force and senior management encourage working place collaboration. Lots of consultancy work so plenty of travel. Most people of helpful especially London office. Career path is there as the company is growing but limited. They do have a training budget and encouraged to do training. They pay market rates. Globally very big company but uk it's a combo of small companies under the name brand so can have its challenges. Good pension scheme. No one to really hold you back to try different things out. Work life balance is good depending on your manager attitude.

    Cons

    Digital practice are quite aggressive and do not have a good reputation internally so do some of the ex telco staff as they now run the place. Birmingham staff very grumpy but other offices staff are OK. Expenses policy needs updating, I. E travel Lodge. Can be difficult to get things done due to lots of companies they brought out still act alone. Difficult to go up the ladder especially if you not part of the inner circle of lower management.

    I worked at NTT DATA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Its a BPO industry. You can learn a basic about BPO here. The Training they have given before on floor is really good. Opportunity to learn about US culture in this industry. Management and colleagues are really good. HR and other department easily become friendly. You can approach them at any time, whenever you needed any help. They conduct alot of functions which will be awesome.

    Cons

    I would say that If you are a night owl you can join here. Other than this there is no drawbacks. Night is hectic personally for me.
