There is no point if you get rating they do promotions and try to balance every associate salary on same pace . In promotions I got 80k where I am working on project and all other person on bench having 1.7lac increment in promotions. I have reason you have salary higher (because I have earn 4rating and made merit package high) I got promoted Programmer Analyst to Associate with 80K increment. Waste of your life and career if they won't understand your hardwork and dedication to your career. Better look at those who appericate it.

Dislikes

Promotion and salary everything. Your hardwork won't get paid off. So better is look somewhere they value your efforts .

I love the fact that , there is no micromanagement in my team. Work life is really great for me. When I compare it with my friends who work in any other MNC , I feel better and happy comparing with the things they mention and realize that I am lucky to be here at CTS. Everyone in the leadership are great and friendly, Work-life-balance is given on high priority here which is very nice. Overall , it's 4 or 5 out of 5.

Dislikes

Only dislikes were no hikes, perks, bonus or salary increments, if salary growth is good, then CTS would be an outstanding place to work.

There is not much to like apart from my team and flexible working hours(this also varies from team to team). Thankfully I have a really good and supportive team who never are all really kind and helpful. They are the best!

Dislikes

....5LPA only to find out later I will start with 4LPA and only after 1 year will my salary be increased to 4.5LPA. While my colleagues in other companies went from 4.5 to 6-7LPA, I got what was supposed to be my initial income.

.... Salary hike is just for name sake.. No learning or growth as they make you work on the applications that have no scope outside. No HR connects to clear your queries. It's been 2 years here and it's weird that I don't know who's my HR, On questioned, they just give a lame answer like your manager is your HR. If you get into a project of different location especially Chennai based projects then there is no going back, they give you false hopes to give you preferred location and everyone here ends up resigning after 1 year of experience. They even change your base Location to Chennai.

Dislikes

Same as above all the concerns and they are never addressed.

1. Okayish work culture. 2. In my case, I found my teammates more helpful than managers or tech leads. 3. If project revenue is good, salary hike will be good. Otherwise expect 5-8% hike.

Dislikes

1. Toxic tech lead in my case. Micromanagement. 2. Internal politics is top notch. 3. More than 10 hours work on workdays, some Saturdays without extra pay.
