Skill development
Office ambience
Free transport, Childcare, Gymnasium, Cafeteria, Work from home, Team outings, Education assistance, Soft skill training, International relocation, Health insurance and Job training.
Values, Salary little above than market average, standards and processes, really good product development experience, long and short term onsite opportunities depends on projects and teams, employees friendly policies, flexible timings.
Teams have good level of autonomy, upper management interference is less.
Due to cost cutting, management is trying to bring work to India without establishing good planning and strategy, which takes toll on existing employees and it's not sustainable.
- A thick layer of middle management following orders from top management without using brains.
- Uncertainty of being laid off because of industry or market at low, I tell …
Advice to Management
You guys need to be lean, just not only on paper but in reality, top management should come out from Indian service companies mindset focusing just to bringing projects to India, please focus on smart product development with smart people, cost is important but balance is also necessary.
