    I have been working at NTT DATA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good and smart people on the ground

    Cons

    It doesn't matter what you achieve or the value you bring to the company and its clients. You are only rewarded if you have the right internal connections. Total lack of transparency and clarity over the work available (if there is any). It's a total non-sense. You are penalised for being too much on the bench but you're not allowed to network to get onto projects - this is "forbidden" as only the resourcing team can decide for you ( it generally ends up being "can you tidy up some slides" types of requests).

    "NTT DATA UK is a bodyshop with a toxic management culture"

    I have been working at NTT DATA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some nice people, who get disillusioned and leave.

    Cons

    Whatever reviews you read if you decide to join NTT DATA UK do your research. Ask the right questions (they will lie to you) and stay away if low end IT services or bodyshopping is not for you. Before you even come for an interview consider: - Does NTT DATA UK have genuine practice areas based on shared intellectual property? No. There are squads but this is all fluff, the output of which has not been used to sell into clients in any meaningful way. - Does NTT DATA UK limit its consultants’ billable time for strategic purposes? No. As a bodyshop NTT DATA UK bills as much of its consultants’ time as possible, all the time. (In contrast real consultancy firms continually invests time in improving its collective knowledge and performance.) - Does NTT DATA UK measure success in terms of profitability per engagement? NTT DATA UK's goal is simply to bill as much as possible as time and materials(T&M) so it can “run the clock” as long as it can. (Real consulting firms use their knowledge to deliver high-value fixed-price engagements.) - Does NTT DATA UK leverage new skills to build higher-level relationships? In true bodyshop style NTT DATA UK simply adds new skills to its list of “things we do.” (Real consultancy firms analyses and leverage new skills into higher-level client relationships.)
