    Pros

    Challenging roles & good growth opportunities

    Cons

    Involvement of TECHM processes and Senior Management focus is on Merger, so employee concerns or not addressed properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to not lose talented people due to lack of recognition or remuneration.

    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 !!
