    I have been working at Nagarro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) Adapts to fast changing technology. 2) A lot to learn . 3) Great work.

    Cons

    1) I read in one of the reviews about nagarro firing people and also read the company's comment on it , that it had been previously done aswell and not related to covid . I slightly disagree with this , I have seen people even with great performance but on bench being fired within a week. Also even if it's performance based there is a corporate standard to gauge an individual's performance through a pipeline in a defined set of months. So that was not followed in nagarro. 2) Little work life balance , too much work even on weekends

    Dear colleague, thanks for your honest review - you describe the company as you see it. Let me make some comments on your Con #1, perhaps it may help you get some more context: 1. The terminations since March are only a small fraction of the bench that we carried through this COVID crisis. I don't have the exact numbers on me but it is only a small fraction. 2. I concede that some people's performance may have been reviewed after they came to the bench, which may result in poor optics - it may look like a knee-jerk decision. But HR uses tons of data collected over the previous 12 months to arrive at a decision only in the worst cases. I wish I could show it to you. This includes performance appraisals, project interview rejections, refusals to pick up available projects etc. And it is not "one strike and you are out" either, nearly 10 strikes (speaking colloquially) need to be accumulated to get to this unfortunate point. 3. We would like to be caring, and really strive to be, but if you look at other reviews here, you see people complaining about the pay cuts too. We have to decide - do we keep the pay cuts on for longer for people who are excelling or do we terminate a few people who are somehow exhibiting a less-than-expected performance or attitude? This is unfortunately a balance that we have to strike. We get a lot of credit for the good things Nagarro does, sometimes even more than deserved, so we should be ok taking some brickbats for the things that we have done carefully and correctly but which are not seen as such ! Again, thank you for the high-quality review. I like reviews like this that are genuine and balanced. Too many other reviews are basically written either by people who are upset to the gills or by those who write a one-liner "I couldn't find any cons" :-) Cheers, Manas

    Dear colleague, I hope you are doing well. Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback to us. I find it a little troubling that you are facing such challenges in your project. This is certainly not representative of the overall Nagarro experience for most people. There can always be project situations wherein teams stretch themselves a lot but this shouldn't be a constant. If you are facing this, please do raise a concern with the HR teams. Also, we do have a policy for compensatory leaves for working on weekends. If you haven't availed it, please do so. Regarding skill matching for project allocations, I understand why you may think this way, but I have to let you know that you are describing outliers in the process. We do hundreds of such matches in a week and there are few cases where the best match is not an exact match. I'd be happy to walk you through the details of how TAP/RAP works. You can reach out to me directly. I hope that over time your outlook and experience being a Nagarrian improves. There is a lot of good that we have which you haven't covered here (and perhaps haven't experienced yet). Stay safe, Vaibhav

    June 29, 2020Vice President

    Dear ex-colleague, I hope you are doing well. Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us here on Glassdoor. It is good to see that you had an overall positive experience while you were with us. About "managers sucking", we do agree that no one is perfect at all times. And sometimes there is an incompatibility between team members (including 'managers'). This is why we have initiatives such as CARING360 forms for direct anonymous feedback, project rotations, and HRFiles systems for reporting of feedback to HR. We work hard to make sure that everyone gets the feedback they need to be a better team member for their colleagues. But, it is also always a work in progress. Best regards and stay safe, Vaibhav
