I guess its nagpur based company having branch in Pune. I guess you can expect sal some where 4 to 5L per annum, but again its based on your current sal.

These days ppl with nearly 2 yrs exp are getting gppd package (sometimes 4+).
I am having some frnds in Persistent Pune. they have got 4 offices there in Pune...good work culture etc. She is happy. Only there is no onsite chance. SO negotiate at the time of recruitment as much as u can.

Hi Vedhas,
Yes, I do work at Persistent and I am really enjoying the the work i am doing here for last 2 years. It has got lot of variety and lot of challenges, responsibilities. However, it depends on the project team you get in.

The onsite oppotunities are there and they are increasing day by day, but do not compare them with MNCs'. The sal is good and at par with industry standards.

We are 1700+ currently and have 9 facilities in pune and 1 at nagpur, expanding at a very fast pace and continuously on a recruiting spree. If u r applying at pune, do send me ur resume and know ur interview date.

I am looking for some good mid size company where onsite are there may be short term , not a lomg term and having a good development projects.
It will very helpful if you can advice me in (in terms of schedule,Technology,Domain, role) about the J2EE projects which are currently supporting/development by Persistent.
Rashmi,

I have almost 6+ yrs of experience and looking for Tech lead/Team Lead position, I have been there with IBM from last 10 months and my role here is more like senior developer. In IBM, working env is good but technology wise i am not getting enough exposure.

In a view of better career growth I think I need to do extensive work with more responsibilities, at the same time not want ruin family life, like I can't work for 9.30AM to 11.30 PM every day with out significant reason.
And if I do then atleast saturday Sunday should be free.On this front how is persistent environment.

I would be thankful for your advice.

In last 2 years, I have never been forced by my manager to work late or on week ends. Rather, I am always fortunate, since my manager hates to come on weekends and he respects e'body's personal life , so encourages us not to work late unnecessarily. Ofcourse, we do work late during release or critical work. But that is never made mandatory. So over all work environment is really very good.

As i said onsite opp. at Persistent are good, increasing day by day, usually short term and hence good for family life. However, compare to MNCs, the oppotunities are still less.

Hope this helps u.

PSPL does indeed have pretty good work cultur an work, it is a ehics based company much better than PCS/Kanbay/MBT/Wipro/iFlex/accenture and likes.

Onsite pooortunities are not everything. These days PSPL is rercruting lot of ppl, and thoug standards in terms of technical strength are going low, it's still one of the much beeter compnies to work for.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Well, In IBM atleast they have mentallity of 8 hrs work, so they planned that way. But some time its needed to work for 10 hrs also.

Again its depend on your manager also.

I think, in IBM and in any other company, it all depends on the project you are in and your manager.

There were instances at IBM when people were asked to come to office during weekends and stay late at office. As I said, it all depends on the project schedule and your manager.

However IBM has some good policies regarding work-life balance and I would say it is much better than most of the other companies.

No, its not only manager, its also depend on whole team and team leads, and company environment and attitude of people working on that org.
If team members don't support than what manager can do ? nothing...

Coming on weekends is absolutely no problem, if project required that, but some companies meant by two days as 48 hrs and some company meant by two days as 8 hrs. that's the different. Some time targets are fixed on friday evening. And if you finish your work few hours early then u will assigned more work to make sure that u can sit atleats upto 10.00 PM, if u finished that at8.00 PM then u will again laod with some other work.

If you need to work 24 hrs then assigned dwork in shifts !!

So attitude and environment of a company plays an important role.
