Dislikes

No work life balance. Very short deadlines and need to meet targets. Working on weekends also well to meet the deadlines. Full of politics and can't even able to tolerate the team. Micro monitoring is too much from manager to lead level. Complete restriction over timings at team level.

Dislikes

We all know how service based organisation work would be but I wouldn’t mention anything wrong about the organisation but it’s all the top people who sits in the ladder who doesn’t know any tech stuff and treat you like shit. Yes I had very bad experience with my manager named Murugesh Radhakrishnan who is a guy treats people like shit and who doesn’t know any tech stuff but behave as if he knows everything. Backstabbing, want to work 7 days a week and the pressure he gives for the employees .. despite doing everything he wouldn’t be happy such a coward. Please don’t work under such person for god he shouldn’t be working because of him lots of well equipped skills person deliverables is getting spoiled.

...and QC doesn't easily let go of any employee. So, some people are enjoying Govt. job like job satisfaction with much better pay. HR needs to do a much better job in bringing the right talent to the hiring managers and also, in organising employee engagement activities.

1. Job security ( It is most important, believe me) 2. Flexible timing. 3. 3 days work from office ( but not strict) 4. Work load is moderate. I mean if no load there then you will be bored right. 5. You can give training, take interviews to earn extra money.

Dislikes

1. Salary increment is as usual like other service based companies. 2. Limited referral bonus earn opportunities. 3. No cab/bus for general shift employees. 4. System is slow. Need to mail higher authorities to solve any issue in some cases. Feels like Govt Office sometimes. 4.
