Limited Vision, Linear Business Model

Head of Sales, BFSI (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsA significant talent drought leads to opportunities for even the most mediocre talents.

ConsVery little and very unstable existing business. Management mantra seems to be self-belief will deliver results - this faith based vision is more apt for the 80s, not the modern business environment. Terrible investment decisions in inorganic plays.

Advice to Senior ManagementLose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Identical to Wipro

Pre-Sales (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsPros – Opportunity to take on new positions (only for Indians)
If an employee (is an Indian) and project ends, they can be picked up by another account without being fired

ConsCons – Management doesn't communicate well - huge veil of secrecy between India and US
Some unethical practices - particularly use of sleezy outsourced recruiters that will promise you anything and tell you anything to get you to sign on
Employee gets 'dropped' into positions without any mentoring or training
Peers and management favor others with Indian heritage and believe they're smarter than other cultures - baboons in suits
Management makes a lot of unrealistic promises to customers then expects front-line employees to figure it out on their own
Indian management throws other employees under bus to make themselves look good
Not a lot of teaming or collaboration to meet common goals - employees try to take credit for others contributions while going to great lengths to fingure out how to do as little as possible
Onsite employees outside of India are completely disconnected from the company - which is mainly in India
Training and events all held on IST timezone - no attempt to support other countries or timezones

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to Senior Management – If your serious about breaking into the US market then you need to ensure Indian employees who are customer facing in the US adapt their business practices to be consistent with American practices. Also need to treat employees that are non-Indian the same as Indian employees - at very least don't appear so blatantly racist.

Senior Management doesn't Care about you, still Company's alive because of Dedicated and great technical manpower.

Project Lead (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Mahindra Satyam

Prosa) Peers are good, don't expect a lot of goodness from senior management.

b) Some level of transparency still exists. A lot of transparency existed in old Satyam.

c) Very good Skilled & Intelligent employees around you, therefore there is opportunity to learn a lot of things.

d) Learning Center in Satyam is very good and you get to learn a lot of free things, which you wont get to learn in any organization.

Consa) Management (one level above you and all higher levels) don't care about you at all. What you are doing, whether you are satisfied, dissatisfied, your concerns etc.

b) Apraisals is not satisfactory to some extent.

c) You have to really be stricter and smarter and clever to get your dues and what you want from the higher ups.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to proactively get yourself more involved with the juniors rather than having them leave. Remember your job is to take care of both employees and the client......I think you have forgotten the employees totally. Get your act together before a lot of good skilled labor gets away.
