Company reviews
"Decent workplace with no much hype"
Former EmployeeTechnology Analyst
I used to work in Infosys Ltd, HQ in Bangalore and the work culture was not so good. Best thing which i can quote is the diverse technical domain available to chose from and if you keep upskilling then you can make a career change in these domains though the process is a bit tricky to do so. There is a good amount of internal politics and higher management power misuse so keep an eye to not to fall for those.

Cons:

Depends on the project which you are working on. Decent on-site opportunities but you have to work with them for several years before you can qualify. Very less pay compared to industry standards
