Dislikes

- Worst Management
- Lots of community politics
- Lack of Industry standards
- No Learning Scope
- Employees are slaves in UST terms
- No Work Life Benefits
- Formals all 5 days
- No Cafeteria in Bangalore branch (Food availability is like u r in a desert)
- Basic AC, water, coffee management is worst
- Poor wash room maintenance
- Negligible or No hike in salary
- Not Employee friendly
- They always need something from Employee where as they really don't want to satisfy the employee needs.
- Appraisals are purely politics especially it is benefit for their community
- No Industry standards followed.

Recommendation -
- Remove the managers seated and settled in Kerala locations of company or move them out of Kerala.
- Just to safe guard their positions, the managers are doing lots of politics especially those who stay in Kerala since they have very less good companies in Kerala.


Note: I am not anti to any community and I came across many good and kind heart Kerala people too.

Awesome Finance team, they are instrumental in settling dues after the employee leaves. even performance bonus was credited after leaving the organisation. very good work life balance no othe company provides unlimited WFH option. Best for Family oriented people who wishes to spend time with their babies or elderly while working at the same time. the company has to improve proper appraisal strategy for the people who are contributing. i wasnt paid appraisals for 2 year despite being billable which forced me to leave the company after all i felt like my energy and efforts are getting wasted. If appraisals are given i would have given 4 stars and if more opportunities are created i would have given 5 stars. apart from this its a great company to work.

Dislikes

no appraisal for billable resources. management doesn't care about attrition they are ready to hire someone from outside paying huge some but not hiking the salary of its employees. seeing employees as head counts instead of valuing their efforts and skills.no vouchers and hesitant approach for paying tech certifications. No aggressive business expansion strategy which lead to finger countable projects or lesser opportunities.

Work

Awesome client, too many managers and bureaucracy . Love the flexibility

Overall UST Global is a good place to work Here is my detailed review
Firstly the positives of UST Global are
1. Good Work Culture - You will get amazed with its culture and the values that they maintain is way above the top valued product companies
2. Work Life Balance - As long as you don't mis utlize, you will get wfh. I personally worked for 3 years wfh, i used to go to office only for submitting Petrol bills and other expenses
3 Compensation - It is most definitely a pay master when compared to any company in india
they really pay very high than other although there are some downsides which i will explain in Negatives of this company

Negatives:

1. Job Security - As long as you are a billed resource you don't have to bother about anything and nobody will be terminated by the company even the performance is low and they have a very high level of tolerance it took 7 months for me to send a resource to Talent Pool due to poor perfor
2.Skill development - None
3 Career Growth - None

Dislikes

Job Security is average,
Dress code must be relaxed

This company gives me a perfect work life balance. Work from Home is available. Swipe In -Swipe Out time is not required. You do your work thats what matters. You do it from home or you do it in office or you do it in cafeteria. It doesnt matter. What matters is delivery. I believe this open atmosphere is what attracted me to stay here for 8.5 yrs. Job security is another area this company gives but yes once you have proved yourself and you fit in the system. But patience is the key. If you stay , Company surely gets you a H1B if your luck permits. As per learning goes there are loads of free subscriptions provided.

Dislikes

One thing i dislike most is its frequent change of policies , regarding Hike. The management is pro-active but they need to bring some stability of the whole system. Policies needs to be implemented and check its effectiveness, but sadly here before a particular policy gets stabilize, a new policy comes and make the whole system unstable.

Good, exciting

Main quality is, you can manage work and life both together. We have freedom to work, interact with top level management and freedom to innovate ideas and can escalate against reporting if they are breaching company values and culture. The bad area is comp and career growth for the old employees specially non technical resources. Its with full of HR work politics and tough to be come out from it . Company and top management is very good and can enjoy, every one will love to work with companies values and culture with full of work freedom and satisfaction.

Dislikes

The bad area is comp and career growth for old employees specially non technical resources. No market research and correction happens on time, no proper system to identify the right talent internally other than poor performance management system. No proper employee retention strategy. HR System and process wise very poor.

Good old small benefits still provided to the employees like refreshments, celebrations

Dislikes

- Indecent and cheap people employed there who are surviving by doing politics
- Intolerable groupism and favoritism happens for committing indecent acts which could be the impact over your preference, expectation, aspiration
- No professionalism or maturity whatsoever
- Ethics is completely missing even with HR people (can imagine the level with the rest)
- Region based culture as they listen to people from Kerala and the core management simply tenting there and doing micro management of all others
- Last assignment was with a person (a woman) which lied about many things to get me out and grouped with all others from the same region (all belonging to Kerala so there is support overflowing blindly ignoring hard proofs given from my side)

I heard the above from the folks who resigned before me also and it pathetically became my experience too. Not a place for decent professionals!

Dislikes

About 1.5 years ago, there was an employee who was made to sit across my cube as he was leaving UST global. He said the reason for leaving the company is "people in UST global are not professional". Though I have been experiencing the same since the first month of joining, even before I heard from that cube mate, today I can say the same with honesty as "people in UST global are cheap and not professional". Unless you are less than 5 years experience, UST global is no place for any experienced or seniors. People who have been in this company were groomed to disrespect and treat others with no dignity. You will hear from the ill-groomed project managers that they are counting every minute of your work and more surprisingly account managers will ask you to send messages wherever you are going. And if you defend such cheap mannerisms, they will turn the case against you with HR. And HRs in this company are so inexperienced and immature for not wanting to hear anything from you or reality.

I dont like anything about the company!!

Dislikes

Worst, anti-employee fraud company. Worst politics!!
They recruited some street dogs as managers, both in projects and HR, which has destroyed the good culture the company had years ago! The new HR team sucks! Many people are leaving the company due to their mismanagement!

NO WORK-LIFE BALANCE!

ONLY TALKS ABOUT VALUES AND CULTURE, BUT DOESNT HAVE EVEN A SPECK OF BOTH!

VERY LOW SALARY HIKE!

Managers encourage MASTER SLAVE relationship and even clients are encouraged to do so with the employees.
Will get fired if one is sick and gets hospitalised!!
Employees are mere instruments for the management to make profit !
To prevent career growth, they brought up the ACE framework in 2012. This resulted in many employees leaving the company!!

Had to work like a SLAVE!!

They give decent hikes if you perform well and if your manager gives you rating accordingly. Nobody cares when you come and leave as long as you are done with your job. Excellent work life balance.

Dislikes

No system to monitor the resources. They suddenly call you and ask you to leave if you don't get into any project for more than 40 days. In short, they hire and fire quickly. The organization is not employee friendly in this case. If you are on bench, you are as good as nothing for them. No learning. They don't hire much freshers too as they don't want to spend much on training people. They just show case internal training programs around the year, but none is worth. No job security at all. Bad Cafeteria. No facilities.

Work

It was on one end of the stick at once. Either too hectic or just completely free.

UST is one of the best in IT industry. New campus in Trivandrum is awesome and economic friendly.

Dislikes

Managers do not value an individuals' unique strength. I do recieve appreciations from customers but they mostly go unnoticed during my mid-year appraisals. My process is not well refined and it is lacking a good knowledge base. Other process in UST is really awesome and well refined. Leads harassment is higher than appraisals/Motivation. Lacking a good team spirit because of improper communication between members. No weekly huddles and no training programmes. All details are updated via mail rather than conducting team huddles. Annual salary hike is not available.

Work

Working Environment is good. Note : Depends on process.
