I joined as a fresher it is a good company if you wish to chill and work at the same time. Lots of learning opportunities are available but hands on experience is tough fight. Good work environment and culture. Teammates are supportive.

Dislikes

In terms of hike most of the people feel trapped. As a fresher even after 3 years of experience bonus is still missing from my salary. Less growth opportunities and good projects. The worst experience was during COVID when we were delayed hike for a promise to retain employees but still employees were laid off after 3 months bench period. Also shift allowance and internet expenses was not provided. The company never passes profits to it's employees. No big annual events. Only family day is celebrated.

Company has its own goal and clear view on in which path it wants to grow.That clarity in a way helps the employee to set their personal development goals too. They strictly adhere to the standards in all of their project no matter what, which again helps to grow an individual.Work culture varies project to project.For some you will feel like this is the best environment to work and for some you feel really stressed out as there is no work life balance.For those who wants to learn new technologies, this is the company one should find. Overall it is a great company to work with.

Dislikes

If you have healthy relations with your seniors your growth position and compensation will be taken care of even if you are lacking somewhere in your skills.It is tough to get your skills recognised until your seniors are supportive and genuine.It is pure hierarchical structure in which you can not move further until you have approval from your seniors.They still have arrangement when you can directly go and talk your concerns which in way never looked upon.Some times we need to work more than 10 hours due to urgency of deliverables still it is considered as PROJECT REQUIREMENT instead of getting it noticed. For some projects they do not consider the quality of deliverables, instead they consider for how long you have been seated on the desk. Once you get into the system you will feel at some extent there is lot of politics and favouritism. At time of appraisals they look into ratings so if you have good ratings and you don’t get compensation according to it, their excuse will be ratings and appraisals are not related.If you have average or low ratings and you have concern with your appraisal then rating matters.
