Good company for a mediocre to break with. Will train you in a good technology while giving the fixed salary amount for the Programmer Analyst Trainee.

Dislikes

Training period is too long, you will not get any project in 8-9 months, in some cases more than a year, but is a good company to start your career if you are a very basic developer.

Everything depends upon the project and team. Mine were wonderful people- no politics ,proper ownership and recognition for the work . Steep learning curve in training. Takes sometime to fit in the new project but you can feel settled in few months.

Dislikes

Pay hike would be low.
