    I worked at Xchanging full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice and challenging work
    Provides training
    Onsite opportunity for few
    Good for graduates

    Cons

    Salary for graduates is in the range of 5000 Rs ( 100 $ ) per month
    No Canteen, hence no breakfast or snacks
    No access to sites like linkedin or any professional sites
    No Lunch or Dinner facility( except when new people join and are in training)
    No Canteen around 1KM radius
    NON AC operated Office, hence hell lot of mosquitoes for night shift. On weekends, you will be stormed by entire office mosquitoes( of all floors).
    No work life balance. Will have to work only in fixed shift timings as it is located in a remote location( 15 kms from city). Worst part is that building is located 1 Km away from Shimoga Bhadravati Main road. Hence you need walk for 20 mins when coming by own transport.
    Office is next to a chemical factory and you get horrible smell as if you are in hell.
    Will put you on bond for atleast 2 to 3 years even if you are experienced ( bond of 40000 to 60000 Rs, and you need to submit all of your marks cards).
    FAKE picture of this office is given to UK office clients and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for your employees, provide basic facilities like food and then think of innovation
    Keep standards in salary

    Too much nepotism

    I worked at Xchanging

    Pros

    Great office, when air conditioning works.

    Cons

    Definitely a case of who you know, not what you know. If your face fits, you'll go far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have management from other departments interviewing internal staff for promotion roles. Otherwise, favoritism always wins.

    Global DNA is that of a BPO. Not much of a global attention for the IT Services business of Singapore. Adapt and change

    Cons

    Frequent change in the top leadership, Inability to change, fossilized and being left by the market, atmosphere is one of too much politicking

    Pros

    Once you have proven yourself, you have the flexibility to seek change to another field of your choice. Of course, opportunities need to be available in the sought-after field and you should show some traits required for the field.

    Cons

    Company needs more contracts to keep going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is smart enough to understand what the company needs.
