Always a product based.
I am working in one of the top MNC (Fortune 500) as a Senior Software Engineer. I joined this company in Sep, 2015. I was very happy as I was joining a product based company and one of the best in market in terms of employee satisfaction. Company offered me wealthy package (almost 100% hike on my previous package). On my joining I received some goodies like T-shirt, backpack, windcheater, headphones etc.
Everything was going smoothly and fantastic until one mail hit our inboxes. Mail was from our CEO. Our organisation was merging with another organisation (Service based). It means, they bought our company. Now we will be working for them under their brand name.
The new brand was also well known in market. We were very happy as we thought we are getting bigger and better. New company sent us mobile power bank as a welcome goodies. They distributed sweets and dry fruits on Diwali.
Everything looks good right? Now comes the climax. Slowly slowly our employee friendly policies started changing to employer’s friendly policies. Leave en-cashment policy changed. Medi-claim policies changed. Office hour timings changed. Shift allowance cancelled. Cab services reduced and many more.
All these things can be managed as these things does not affect that much as much one thing does. Money! Hike and Bonus. As I joined in Sept last year, I did not get much hike thst year reasoning I served only three months and I agreed that time. But this year hike given to us was 5% and maximum 6%. That means in one and half year I got around 6% hike and bonus less than 100%.
What I dreamed and what I got? ;)
If any one working in product based company, please do let me know if you have a opening for Java.Just kidding!! :D :D Its not that bad over here.
