1. Bond of 3years for freshers.
2. Starting salary for freshers is very less (2.0lpa for AME, 2.56lpa for BTech )
3. All ex-airforce person are holding "manager" position here. And, they have no "zero" managerial skills to manage a project. Inside of tactfully solving a problem, they will make a mess and then they will try to solve the issue.
4. HR department is fully of ill-mannered and uneducated folks, who doesn't even know how to behave with employees. They are puppets in the hand of the management and have "zero" problem solving skills.
5. Appraisal is a joke in this organization. Every year they have "budget constraints". And, during appraisal process, there will be a blame gane going on between the managers and the HRs. None of them have the clarity of current years appraisal and still they shout and say that they have a transparent appraisal process.
6. The MD and the CMD of this company are great visionaries. But, they supported by a bunch of uneducated and foolish managers and HRs.
7. They have a survey know as Associate Satisfaction Survey or ASAT. This survey us conducted by a third party agency. Managers will literally threat the employees to give "good remarks" in this survey. If, the manager gets a low rating/score in this survey, then the entire projects appraisal rating is affected. It has happened in my case. And the manager has openly accepted it that bcoz of low ASAT score, he has given bad appraisal rating to the employees.
8. Non negotiable notic

In my view the company is perfect in all aspects. When I was unable to do some sort of work which was new to me and felt difficult then my colleagues used to help me. I came to know how to behave in IT COMPANIES and specially I changed my attitude which suits for a IT COMPANY.Management was cool, it used to celebrate all feasts equally and also used to celebrate all the staff's birthdays including security guards.I did not felt any hardest part in my job because if there is any hard task then my CO-WORKERS used to help me till the task comes to end. One day it was my birthday I was going to office to distribute sweets to staff then when I entered into the office then all of my colleagues wished me and they also brought a cake for me on that day was really most enjoyable day in my office days.
ProsEvery Saturday they used to provide lunch and snacks
Good place to start career with Cyient with lot of exposure on engineering services
Morning at Cyient Ltd starts with a good note by every one greeting each other, and co workers meet each other for 10 minutes stand up meeting for the discussion about the work, then individuals heads towards there work. Learning graph at Cyient is highly appreciable as a service industry we get different projects which comes with own challenges.Healthy competition exist between Co-workers which helps us to deliver quality output and we all works as a team to achieve common goal.Some times day extends till the night and we don't have proper arrangement for dinner in office which makes one feel more hungry and tired.At Cyient we have lot of fun at work activities which keeps us active and involved with the team and higher management
I strongly recommad working in this organization is great
I enjoyed and felt very great during my tenure in this organization. My career growth drastically increased since beginning to end, this because of they have given lot of opportunities to increase my growth. Due to tight schedule of project time lines, sometimes there was no work life balance. The hardest part of job was client requirements, and we worked very hard to fulfill client requirement in every project, which I worked during my tenure. Once my career growth increased, when I reached Jr.Management level, I have lot of responsibilities and literally i felt very great to work on this role.
ProsCompetitive work environment. Providing onsite opportunities, Paying for over time work.
ConsOffice hours are not comfortable, Short lunch break, Project schedule dates
I have started a progressively responsible engineering career at Infotech Enterprises Ltd, India. With all the support of my seniors, I raised from Assistant Design Engineer to Senior Design Engineer.
Today, I am in a stage where I can do conceptual product design for consumer products. Attained knowledge in design of plastic components and mold flow analysis. Failure mode effective analysis(FMEA) on consumer products like electronic tooth brushes and tolerance stack up analysis are some of the other areas which I have worked on. Creation of manufacturing drawings according to ASME standards.
My colleagues and managers helped me a lot to gain knowledge about product design. They encouraged me to attend design review and considered some of my concepts.
I have learned a lot from Cyient. As I joined as design engineer with experience in aero domain working as a CAD engineer with a small team size to managing 45+ team members in Rail domain. Working with different clients and customer locations as a design engineer to customer interface manager for various rail transportation projects successfully.
Presently working in customer engagement team and for the past two years the customer engagement team implemented various initiatives and we could see the good progress in customer engagement score and I got an opportunity to work closely with senior management in both delivery and sales teams.
Proschanging work culture for better and Opportunity to work with senior management
A regular day involves your regular assigned work with all ups and downs. My first professional job, learnt a lot about the workplace culture, dealing of management, your co-workers dependency, your attitude towards your work, a desire to rise high and to do some extra-ordinary each time you enter your workplace. Management was helpful and cooperating , managers and team lead always ready to help. Working with well mannered and good co-workers becomes fun and you do not feel stress rather you enjoy your work and responsibilities, same I felt working at this place. The hardest part at workplace can be any depending on your work and your outlook and same work can be the most enjoyable too.
calm workplace, skilled professionals to guide beginers
Our day starts at 6 am -3:30 pm as per A-shift but as per work load or strech in board room meetings we strech evenings 6:30 pm. some time we are asked to come general shift 9 am - 6:30 pm. I learned more about the advancing technologies upcoming future by our projects ,trainings, seminars.Management is quiet good & healthy cordial environment. Colleagues were friendly & good mentors to guide you .Hardest part was to have knowledge on the domain your project belong & perform the task correctly to deliver it to the client.
After certain hurdles i came to know the solution & resolve the problems in best technical ways which really makes you to be an talented Engineer.
I was hired as a contractor through an agency to Cyient in September 2018 with the promises of unlimited pay and progression should you put the work in. That we would receive constant support within out training and 24 hours a day there was someone we could contact. I was told that generally we were to go out and survey Monday-Wednesday and write up our reports over thursday and friday to return.
I found this out to be a lie pretty fast.
We were given a training week where we were were told by other workers who had been drafted in to show us the ropes that BT staff who are doing the same job as us are given 6 months of training before they carry out the same work as us. We were expected to take this weeks training and develop it within a month to the same standard as BT.
Yes we were guaranteed a 40 hour contract where you were paid regardless if there was work or not but I soon found this to be boring and uneventful. The new hires I was a part of were quickly forgotten about, leaving us with little experience in the role we had taken on. I myself, along with several others found ourselves not budded up other more experienced engineers when we started. I myself, was partnered with another new starter and her mentor, who had started a few weeks prior to us.
After two weeks of this I was given a solo job to go out and complete on my own. I completed the job and sent it through, hearing nothing back for a week in terms of feedback or quality to which then when I fi
Positives: In-depth knowledge of FIBRE PLANNING as that is what you're getting into with this role.
Where to start...
I have worked as a 'GIS Technician/Data Analyst' for 10 months, either job title is completely misleading and mis-sold by the recruiting agency and incredibly unpaid. Within this 10 month period I have seen 35 members of staff come and go. These are immediate red flags for any company.
Pay- This will be mentioned further down but overarching concept is as follows: Wage (10:60) per hour - employment costs and admin costs = close to minimum wage pay.
More hours you do higher % is deducted from pay therefore no incentive for more hours. This role is deserving of far far more per hour.
I have witnessed misogyny in the workplace, as a result of this a member of my team resigned and expressed their concern to me prior to their resignation. We discussed and came to a conclusion that nothing would change in the workplace and it was in their interest to leave and pursue a career elsewhere has it was affecting their mental health. I had management come to me regarding this complaint in order to deal with (I am not HR nor is it professional in any company to have management asking another contractor to resolve).
This is closely tied with the unequal pay between females and males performing the exact same tasks and to the same quality and standard.
You are treated unfairly given the lack of knowledge at your disposal to complete the tasks de
Unappreciative, underpayed, expectations are for you to learn every job possible, with no/minimal pay increase
Management here is so unappreciative, they expect you to go way beyond your job description and expand into other positions without a pay raise. In drafting they often require mandatory overtime due to high volume of jobs, but they don’t want to hire more people because they won’t make as much revenue. They continue to try to hire young unmotivated workers so they can pay them significantly less and not hear complaints, which does not help the workload for the experienced because experienced people are expected to train the new hires while also maintaining their work output. If you’re a field technician, you’ll barely be in office, always traveling, lots of OT but again it’s very under appreciated and under paid . You are expected to travel to different cities to work with people from other branches of Cyient that are being paid more than you, when you are the one who is training them on how to do the work. Truly Unfair. The turnover is high and they can’t seem to find good people at all. They complain when you use PTO because they don’t have enough people staffed to handle workload. Management here wants to give you enough knowledge and training to do only so much, they do not want to give you enough industry knowledge to realize you can go to another company and get treated better. They use people like pawns to increase their revenue and make management more money. Not to mention the boss’s husband gets to work from home “for covid safety” while everyone else is mandated to
Working there always felt like Wednesday Addams at summer camp in Addams Family Values. God help you if your face doesn't fit. If your outward energy and enthusiasm don't meet the of that of the moral majority then you might as well just kiss your job goodbye. It's not enough to be a decent hard-working person but you have to pledge allegiance to the micromanaging happy clappy "let's-do-this-guys" over the top americanised workplace culture. You were always presented with the illusion of choice but this was only part of a tick-box exercise for the employer. They have an agenda and you aren't a significant part of it; You might as well be part of the office furniture. Communication was terrible. They are great at wanting something from you but terrible when it comes to doing anything for you. Arbitrary orders abound. Woe betide those who question the order of things! Common sense is traded under the counter at the tavern of the office water fountain. In other words, common sense is not appreciated unless it coincides with the company agenda. The job isn't hard but the incessant micromanaging undermines confidence and is seriously distracting. Micromanaging might be absolutely delightful for anyone with the IQ of a worm infested turnip but for grown adults it is patronising. They pay lip-service to mental health but is definitely not respected on a serious level. Admittedly there is some cosmetic appreciation of mental health as with all the other tick-box exercises.
A typical day of work involved digitising maps on a computer for an agricultural subsidy scheme. I developed a good spatial awareness and attention to detail. This part of the work was overall interesting and challenging.
Management were very hands off and didn't talk to anyone, with communication mostly by email and no team building exercises. Management would also ignore all email replies.
There were a rigid set of protocols for completing work but the goal posts were constantly moved, resulting in contradictory advice. This encouraged people to be petty and to try and find fault in everything. Work moved at a snails pace. The quality targets were enforced rigidly except for when a key deadline came up, in which case the QA's passed everything anyway.
The contract for all team members was temporary and through an umbrella with everyone in the same insecure position. Everyone could be dismissed without reason. No-one was hired for more than 2 years because they would then have to be treated as real employees.
Pay incentives were put in place but these also kept getting raised so as to make the target less achievable. The map software kept getting broken and this lost many hours of productive time.
The office environment was informal, casual clothes etc. and the workers overall young and very multi national.
ProsInformal working environment, flexible hours, easy to take holiday
The company is centered around India. There are daily e-mails about what the company is doing in India and weekly summaries of the daily e-mails. Desktop backgrounds are constantly changed to be a distracting PR graphic about rewards won by the CEO or similar. The company has attempted to deploy pop-up notifications to further spam global employees with the same information already sent to e-mail and desktop backgrounds. Upper management in India makes decisions and enforces them without thought or knowledge of how other business units operate globally. The best way to summarize the company is that there is a policy stating that all offices are to have security guards. The Indian employees cannot comprehend that other locations (the US) do not follow this because of cost and feasibility restrictions. They think just because document #XYZ says to do this then it must be done everywhere. There isn't any planning or organization at this company. If something is put on a check-list then it must be done; regardless of if it's possible, are better ways to accomplish the goal, etc. There's a constant saying "You need to think globally.", which in reality translates to "Do what works for the India locations, even if it is in detriment to every other location.". The company also has a culture of blatant dishonesty even when presented with documented proof of something.
Poor company, poor working environment, poor teamwork
Management is the worst. Run outside of the Country and works on favoritism and is highly biased towards a single group of people within the company. Everyday was an adventure in keeping a job. No direction from Management as to required objectives or goals. Certain people were given preferential treatment and allowed to poach customers and territories. Executives had no concept of the customer base and what was going on within each segment. Same people actively undermined work-flow and processes to make sure deals weren't closed. Internal strife caused mass exodus of needed technical resources. Bids were purposely overpriced to lose certain segments of the business with specific customers. New management was brought in to deal with issues, though were completed as directed by upper level management. Executives actively chastised employees to prompt better results and undermined client meetings.
Job titles may not be as presented. FPGA positions are advertised but there is very little knowledge within this company. There is a makeshift lab in the Melbourne site but nothing in there is used or useful. It is largely antiquated as there is no hardware to build, test or repair at this site.
Everyone is either fresh out of school or a software engineer with little, if any, experience with FPGA's. There is primarily quality checks on existing designs completed by Cyients clients. Design engineers should be very clear to what they are applying if the position is described as design or even FPGA. There was no interaction with any FPGA devices from any of the manufacturers or any electronics on site during my entire time of employment. Neither was any of the FPGA toolsets used at anytime. As I asked numerous times, management made it clear that there are NO PLANS to do or acquire any design work. Apply wisely.
