    I worked at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn, excellent leadership and wonderful staff/trainers.

    Cons

    Very demanding projects, deadlines and fast paced environment. There was a new challenge every day.

    Advice to Management

    I would not advise my management team to do anything differently. It would have been nice to spend more time with the other managers although we have quite a few team building activities. Work came first!

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Old times from Satyam are good and friendly. Helpful and share knowledge.

    Cons

    The company has changed after take over by Mahindra. The HR system is cumbersome and hell a lot of online processes and policies, that dont even make sense. It looks like there is never 1 person with accountability whom you could contact. You get pushed around everytime for all procedural things that shouldnt really matter: leaves, timely salary payments, allowances payments, travel expenses to client, you name it,... u got problems. The system has become extremely political, I think its because the not so good ones suddenly jumped up when there was vaccum, and now that the new crowd is very competent, the senior ones are loosing balls. Till you are a boot licker, you will survive any crises.

    Advice to Management

    Empower middle management, bring in some fresh air and build a system that is non political. You all know that the HR system sucks, there is no secret to it, and the hole is too large to hide.....i think its good to mend it than to cover it.

    Advice to Management

    Be objective; rotate people around projects to build up skills, develop a more matrixed organization to enable more frequent and direct interaction with project managers and program managers. They should stop scapegoating and become more objective. Strengthen PMO in true sense and introduce a more rigorous and disciplined project closure process.

    I have been working at Mahindra Satyam

    Pros

    If you are a beginner in your career, satyam would be good company,however, you need to be again a Telugu for getting into some projects as a fresher. There are more than 3000 freshers in the company who have not got into any projects and are still on bench. These are not ven given looked after from any angle like groming or using them for someother opportunities. They are asked to sit in places where even they do... not have access to satyam network. The height is, to fill their daily work sheet, they have to go to cyber cafe and fill it!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Good to wrok if you are of Telugu or Tamil origin. One person on Top and the remianing full family is in Satyam, all satyam employees know that, there are 3-4 top persons who family (30-60 people) are working in satyam and most of them of no use to satyam. They hardly even come to office. The official language is Telugu and decisions are made in the same. Non telugu person is totally unaware of the same. He/She is... just conveyed the decisions. This is know fact, if you are a non telugu, even your salary/promotion is kept at abeyance.
