Its a company to start up a career..but to grow...the bird needs to fly on

Software Testing Engineer (Current Employee)
Sydney

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than 5 years

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

ConsProfessional 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 Senior ManagementPlease 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 !!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
