The company is open to innovation and readily
adopts the latest technology. I love the fact that I am a part of a team that
markets reliable, high-quality products and has a global client base. As a
result, I get to travel abroad, especially to the US and Canada. But on-site
travel is completely dependent on your project and client’s location. Mine is a
US-based client and they have some offices in Toronto, hence I got a B1 visa
quickly. Another plus point is that my colleagues come from various cultural
backgrounds, and we work happily in collaboration. I also like the employee
re-hire policy here.


Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is slow. The work pressure is very high. Sometimes, I have to work 14-18 hours straight in a day as I have to attend client calls in the evening and sometimes late into the night. Managers do not value an individuals’ unique strengths, which is why I have to take back my suggestions most of the times. I do receive appreciation emails from my client, but they mostly go unnoticed during my mid-year appraisals. Also, there is no on-job training for freshers, hence senior folks like me have to guide them step-by-step, which is a pain sometimes.

The company believes in multitasking which is good and enriches/enhances one's capabilities. Trains personnel with requisite s/w, people management and various other programmes as well. When necessary sends employees abroad i.e. mostly to european countries to get the know how and process involved to complete a product. Most of the times tries to lay down processes and procedures for each and every project to be adhered to. If someone is really good at the roles and respponsibilities that he/she has been entrusted with then there are ample oppurtunities for growth in positions.

Dislikes

Work pressure stays high for long period of time and people with very little technical knowledge interfere in project processes including estimation. True talent doesnot reach to the top management and thereby does not get the due recognization for his/her efforts. Top management rely on some managers who are extremly good at managing their interests only. In the process many true and good talents remain suppressed for a long period of time until they finally get one good oppertunity to leave. I do not know what it is now, but when I was there the louder and noisier persons were heard and appriased well. Nobody ever cared to analyse what they speak. If you are good at bowing and saying yes to everything your senior says then you can survive well without working and get good incentives.

I don't like anything about COWI. They even have vacancies still they did not select every trainee and wasted there 3 months. Complete biased company. No fair decisions.

Dislikes

Just a wastage of time, there is no job security. In fact after completing training they have vacancy still they did not appoint every trainee. If they don't want to take us for regular job then why they had selected us for training. We just wasted our 3 months there. After completion of training they throw us from the company like we were nothing there.

Work

Initially it was all good. But later on the decisions taken by the head of section for regular job selection was not at all fair.
