Pretty average mid-size service provider

Insurance (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Xchanging full-time for more than a year

ProsGood work/life balance, friendly colleagues, flexible working, reasonable pay, generally support training

ConsUnambitious risk-averse company under current leadership, still overreliance on few big contracts without much replacements. Management not employee focused and a total old-boys-club, invisible HR. Insurance monopoly position creates friction with many customers

Advice to Senior ManagementEither take risks to grow or sell up to a larger consultancy, and diversify the leadership teams

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Career minded people should not even come within 10 km radius of this company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I worked at Xchanging full-time for less than a year

Pros- Best for the people who just want to come to office, do time pass and go home
- Starting package
- location (within the city)

Cons- Pathetic infrastructure (No proper chairs also)
- Outdated systems running pirated windows OS. Only senior level people get laptops with genuine windows OS)
- Hardly any good projects in bangalore. Sometimes people are hired for projects and then placed on bench.
- Most of the projects are chennai based. Many people who joined specifically for bangalore location are asked to move to chennai.
- Pathetic managers and department heads who have spent donkeys years in the organization and think they know everything, when the reality is actually the opposite.
- Setting up your system with all the necessary softwares takes ages as each and every software installation has to come through a request.
- Managers who ask for status update without even enabling the employee with all the necessary hardware and softwares.
- Just because they pay you salary, the managers here think that they own you and shamelessly call you on even on weekends and ask for status update.
- Absolutely no respect for employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice. Its beyond repair.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
