    Current Employee - Software Testing Engineer in Sydney

    Pros

    Training is an added advantage here.You learn the corporate culture while you are still coming out of the college go easy attitude.

    Cons

    Professional Approach is available in very few projects,freshers are trained being professional but then it is lost over a period of time.
    Growth and Learning curve is exponentially low when compared to other competitors,where there is a one on one dependency of career growth with learning.
    Work Hours with the swipe in and swipe out for resources,to monitor them like robots, when they travel from far places ,makes them feel demotivate.
    The low hikes add on the fire,you do not get what you deserve.Work Hard, earn less

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remove the swipe in and swipe out mechanism,makes life of people pathetic, work from home and easy project jumps should be encouraged.Work Atmosphere must be a pleasure not a pain,when tied up into too many disciplinary actions. Dear Leaders Please grow up !!

    Pros

    Flexibility to move from one project or client to another every 18 to 24 months and also to be able to go onsite

    Cons

    The Mahindra management offers jobs and not careers. And the management does not have any process in place to take care of engaging experienced resources or develop experiences resources in order to provide career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a shame that management fails to understand that an employee has reached a certain level in his/her career due to his/her strengths, contributions, efforts, outcomes and learnings. These strengths need to be exploited by providing enough opportunities / challenges to help him/her further grow the company's business.
