Infosys! ha! they are probably going to suck your blood out by charging outrageous manpower rates, our company used to do business with them to develop some of our products in the early 2000's
I wouldn't work in companies like TCS,Infosys and Wipro because your worth as an employee is non existent.
Infosys are now trying to offer outcome oriented engagements, where their armies of staff are fully accountable for the sh*t work they do! What a joke....
In the late 90's Infosys was a God Like company among the Indian IT firms. They wanted quality people. They used to hire staff by throwing them a series of puzzles and mathematical equations and what not. If you could solve a riddle you were in basically.
As the years progressed they grew a bit and wanted thousands of people to work on their "projects" and then they hired anybody just about anybody an inanimate carbon rod would do.
I remember from several of my friends they'd be hired and put on the "bench" and then "deployed" to some random project. It could turn out that an electronics engineer could end up working on a banking project and a mechanical engineer could end up working in a database project.
the morale among the "benchers" were terrible they had no motivation to work at all, they'd come into office and stare at a desk for 8 hrs and go home and get paid for it.
And they aren't alone in that approach - we see it from the big 4 and also the blue sky boys like Bain, Wyman, McKinsey etc who employ these brilliant 'problem solvers' with absolutely no clue about banking concepts from a functional perspective and therefore ineffective on complex projects. Led by experienced partners who vanish as soon as the projects start and leave some fresh grads on the trading desk to work out how to price a credit default swap................
