Do they really care about employees?

Former Employee - Administrative Assist  in  Agoura Hills, CA (US)
Former Employee - Administrative Assist in Agoura Hills, CA (US)

Pros

Try to give raises every year (and some bonus).

Cons

After 6 1/2 years of devotion and only missing one day of work because of having to go into the hospital (unexpectedly). The company really doesn't care and closes the office you are working in and instead of letting you telecommute like every other person in the same office you get laid off!!!!!!!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about employees as you claim to care about members (they are members too).

    Current Employee - Project Manager  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Pros

    1) Recruitment team - Recruitment team is just as dumb as it can be - they hunt for profiles, and hire. No salary negotiation, if you can guess how urgent the opening is - they will offer you out of the way salaries - people are offered 100% hikes. Directors approve all such exceptions.
    2) Heaven for female employees (with due respect to all women - please don't take me otherwise when you read this...) - Enjoy more often work from homes, in case you are planning family - you can get 1-2 months of work from home ahead of your due date, followed by 3 months of maternity leaves, and on top of it you can take one month additional leaves and followed by one month work from home. So a total of 6 months paid offs!
    3) Managers - Managers are not given any value by Sr. management they are treated as coordinators, so employee have full fun (well almost). Delivery manage is where mgmt gives some value, so this works well in favor of employees.
    4) This company has internal job posting - enjoy this as tool to get promotion, since managers are not believed and given value by sr management, so if you are good 'player' you can drive manger and keep asking him for promotion/salary hike- trust me 12-18 months is all it takes for a dumb but cunning employee to get both, if that doesn't work, apply for IJP and your manager will approve it and you are done. Come 18 months, apply another IJP :) Ladder up is simple for people who know how to drive manager :)

    Cons

    Cons are Pros from employee standpoint (listed above) :), so here is the list:
    1) Poor recruitment team (specially in Hyderabad)
    2) Added flexibility for female employees
    3) Managers are not treated well by senior management
    4) Support services are hell here - facility, infrastructure, and real-estate teams work here like govt. employees and treat other departments poorly and there is no way to complain, escalate and hence team enjoys their position best! No one listens - ask anyone in this company and people will tell you the same :)

    Former Employee - Manager  in  Irvine, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Manager in Irvine, CA (US)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits can be alright, depending upon the your location and the position you have. Work environment is good - free coffee at most locations.

    Cons

    Big company - Hurry up and wait. Also, despite experiencing growth recently, the organization is stale at the top and in need of some new vision. Overall, employee morale is poor - despite the survey results they tout - everyone lies on those since they believe (rightly) that they are not anonymous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look hard at the management level that has been there for a number of years - they have all risen to the level of, well further then they should go.
