IBM or Accenture

IBM or Accenture? TCS or Infy or Wipro? Satyam or Patni or CTS?

Many of us would face this problem. All these are big brands in India (or world) today. They cannot be compared on the basis of brand value. Though globally Accenture is into pure consulting and IBM is more into technology services, in India both carry out the same work as Infy or TCS. We will rule out the brand option completely though you can stick to Indian brands, which are well known names in Stock Market. Your would be father-in-law must have heard about Infy or Satyam, I mean getting a good bride/dowry may be easier for a Infy guy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Coming to Salary more or less they are equal and when it comes to salary the bigger question is location, money wise Infosys in Hyderabad would be a better option than
IBM in Banglore.

    The article certainly useful and gives directions to somebody who is fresh from college and has unrealistic expectations from bulk companies. Thanks a lot to the author.

        hi whats the minimum percentage of promised performance pay will be given by accenture

    • def says:

      Sorry to contradict, but i was accenture employee till last month and the pay is shit and they treat you like as if you dont have a life beyond office.

        i am placed in accenture..should i join this company or not….what is the future in accenture say in 5 years?

  5. pawan kumar rai says:

    I am very impresed to get the information.
    thanks

  6. rajesh says:

    the article is great..but how would you compare TCS with IBM? both seem to be more or less same

  7. Girish says:

    i guess Accenture is the best ….. as i could read the cultures of Accenture , Infosys and IBM ….. no one can match Accenture , but its a silent performer …. u need much knowledge to understand about accenture.

  8. Wil says:

    I have a possible opportunity with Satyam in Irvine, CA, US. As a US citizen working in a U.S. location how should I consider this opportunity? How would it compare to working in Satyam in India. They would want me to start without giving two weeks notice to my current employer (in fact, the start date is 10/12 – giving one day for an interview, one day for a decision and Friday be on the job). Culturally, would this be acceptable in India? Is this the company trying to push things or should I think that the recruiter is being pushy? I like what I see of the company from research but I want to make sure I have enough information for my decision – I don’t want to get hired and be out of a job in three months.

  9. nsujoy says:

    From what i know about Satyam it even chases its employees to court if they leave the company during bond period. And its the norm to have a 1 month notice period in every company in India. Some ask companies even ask for a longer notice period of 2 months.
    I think they are looking for an urgent opening still you can bargain for 2 weeks time if they are willing to take you.(my personal opinion)

  10. SANIA says:

    ACCENTURE IS GOOD IN ALL ASPECTS

      LOL.. thats preposterous……… all companies are same, Accenture is not special in any way. Highly unethical policies introduced lately.

    Hey..

    I have an offer from Infosys and IBM global services,and am very,very confused between the two.Graduated in June โ€˜07,and got a joining date in november for IBM and Infosys.However,IBM has postponed its date to the end of december and Im worried that its too late.Can you kindly advise on what to join because Im very worried!!

  12. nsujoy says:

    You can join Infy, they ask you to sign the bond after few days, if you dont like it by then, you can still have the chance to join IBM.

  13. ABC says:

    Can you tell me after how many days they ask us to sign the bond,approximately?

  14. ABC says:

    Can you tell me after how many days they ask us to sign the bond,approximately?You know a lot about career growth and its prospects..can you please tell me how I could advance my career depending on which company I join?

  15. nsujoy says:

    The bond is signed within first 2 months, i believe for good career growth you should work hard and work on something you like to do.

    Hi,
    I hav 3.5 years of experience in java/j2ee.I have 4 offers from different organisation.offers are from iflex,satyam,ibm,techmahindra.I am very much confused which organisation to join.I am looking for long term commitment to the company.Can you please suggest which will be better in terms of growth,work culture,career.

  17. Pune_CmpSci_Geek says:

    Your was a very well written and informative article. One line however seems to be pretty wrong now – “Work culture or HR policies are better in IBM “.

    I have a BE degree in Comp Engg from Univ of Pune. My Date of joining was initially postponed to Nov’07 , then to dec’07 and now to 1st July’2008!!!

    IBM is managed pretty badly in India. They have played with the careers of hundreds of fresh engineers from Univ of Pune , Univ of Hyd , Jadavpur univ and atleast 3 NIT’s.

    People talk of a hiring boom by IBM but truth is that it can not manage the employees its hiring in droves now.

    Guide to future ibm aspirants – “Avoid it if you can “.

  18. Pune_CmpSci_Geek says:

    Do check the IBM 2007 recruits community on orkut of you doubt the veracity of my statements.

    More on this will appear on national media next week.

    i am working with infosys right now.i m a B.E passed out from PESIT Bangalore which is one of the top colleges in karnataka.But the kind of work I do is something non-technical.It is all support kind of work.I have been here for jus 6 months and want to apply somewhere else.If I break their bond without informing them,will it be a problem? coz they really are nt caring about our careers there.plz sum1 help me

  20. rahul says:

    some1 plz help me…i m in crisis….

  21. nsujoy says:

    read this one about pros and cons of breaking bond,

    http://www.jobsamiksha.com/resources-mythbuster-confessions-of-a-bond-breaker.html

    but i would advice not to break unless it is very bad, please mail us if you want to know more (info@jobsamiksha.com)

  22. ajay says:

    First of all let me tell you that the analysis here is very realistic.

    I have worked in Accenture and Oracle. Let me tell you services companies in general require low end skills and pay less CTC comparatively.

    Accenture recruits in bulk and you won’t find colleagues over there who you can be proud of.

    I believe Infosys/Wipro/IBM/Accenture is the right order when you compare services companies in general in India.

  23. kumar says:

    IBM India is one of the worst company for technical people. People managers will treat employees as slaves. If he likes you will grow else u will never get hikes. Please please note that IBM CTC contains performance bonus say for example 4 lacs salary u will be having 30-35k as a performance bonus. Best performer may get 40%. No technical knowledge needed to work in projects and SSLC guy can complete the work.

    Before join IBM read this http://www.jobvent.com/companyBrowse.php?CompanyID=21&searchType=company&searchText=ibm

    Note : I have 3 Years exp in IBM

    • Supreme says:

      To contradict kumar I could say onething that if you are not a good performer you can’t really expect a growth in IBM. IBM still one of the best brands in the world for his vision. I have joined Oracle recently but IBM still command huge respects around the globe. You just need to know how to break the system in IBM and make your path. I am looking forward to join IBM once again. Those who are trying to make their way to IBM – Only one piece of advice – Please negotiate your salary while getting into IBM or else you will come across souls like Kumar. I was having 5.5 yrs exp in IBM, India and IBM, U.S

  26. Vinod says:

    I would like to share my experience at IBM Kolkata. I worked in IBM Kolkata.All of a sudden my manager started telling me to improve my performance & wanted me to report to two other people (one junior to me and one of my levl.)simultaneously.Then it was hell, the people who came in as my managers stared scolding me in languages which only slum dwellers will use.My customers were all praises for me but my manager kept telling me that my performance is going from bad to worse.Once in a meeting he also told me that i am fortunate that i could talk to him in person, otherwise people managers are kicking employees out of the co.When they want to kick people out they make such situation that you will have to leave

  27. abcd says:

    Feedback about Accenture-

    Accenture is a very good company in terms of job stability. Despite of market situation, I believe very few/no people were fired. However majority of the projects are support projects. HR policies are good. Not much work pressure (basically depends on project to project).

    Good company for long term.

  28. XYZ says:

    i have 2 years and 8 months of work ex in IBM.I support vinod regarding his views abt IBm.I have also similar experience.Moreover i want to say there is lot of politics in IBM.So please think twice before joining.

  29. anonymous says:

    I completly agree with what Vinod has mentioned.
    This is my fourth year at IBM Kolkata.I have always been one of the best performers thru out my career(school/college/job) still the situation is so pathetic that I am still at the same designation on which I joined 4 years back as a fresher..talking about the rennumeration…it has not yet crossed 3.5L and work responsibilities??? they expect u to work so much and leverage so much work from u as if they pay u in million$…I warn every fresher never ever join IBM Kolkata else ur career is doomed for sure…yes as an experianced u can join after bargaining for a good hike and designation too..not that bad for experianced joinies..

  30. Ajay says:

    I agree too, IBM Kolkata is the worst of all. Now they have started to retain people forcefully by complying to 3 months notice period. I know cases where they are using technical architects for monitoring jobs and people are working for 16 hours witout overtime. please forget about ibm here.

  31. ash562 says:

    I completely agree with you people, I’m facing the same problem. I work for IBM and got a much better offer in hand where they’re ready to wait for me for a max of 45 days after I’ve requested them but my managers are soo against my personal growth that they’re forcing me to serve complete 90 days of notice period, which is crazy. which company in world would wait that long? that way noone would be able to leave IBM. There should be some kind of action against this policy of theirs, its so Anti-Employee. Morons are not even ready to sell off the notice period partially. I wish I could sue them or approach some court against them.

  32. Anonymous says:

    Yes.. I too and many of my colleagues are facing the same issue with IBM…. What on the earth they need 3 months notice??!!!! a KT can be completed in 1 month and they can get a guy in 1 month a max would be more than sufficient. this surely is a bad technique to hold people back!! I strongly suggest not to join IBM it may be good for people who doesn’t want money and dont want to leave IBM.. but if you are open to look out for better opportunities IBM is a big NO..

    • Anonymous says:

      This is for bangalore IBM too… We have to stay at least 3 months eventhough you dont have much responsibility in your project.

      • anonymous says:

        Me too facing the same problem from IBM Noida office…This something happening throughout IBM, a very mean way to reduce attrition, but this way they are only going heighten our desire to leave at any cost…Now many of the companies are aware of this policy of IBM… I think this is only one of the anti employee policy IBM India has…there are many more such policies as IBMers should be aware…There is no direct access to the HR…Everything is thru call center…It’s really frustrating…The relieving letter is couriered to u after 45 days of ur last…Isnt this ridiculous…If u need it early raise a request for a provisional relieving letter…I would never recommend anyone to join IBM…Even if they join it wud be good to leave within first year when the notice period is 1 month

        Guys!!! The 3 months notice period has been imposed in all the major corporates and IBM is the last one to introduce it..Keep a good rapport with your upline manager then everything will fall in place.

    Any idea/suggestion? Please help me out in this.

      • karthik says:

        If onsite chances or bloated hikes is what you are after – then you should over look IBM. In my personal experience IBM india is better in terms of work culture than a infosys or accenture. You will have chances to grow as a techie.

        Go to desi companies if you want onsite.

  54. nsujoy says:

    you can ask the HR about the projects, salary wise Pune offer is better as Mumbai is costlier, but it depends on your personal choice as well.

    Hi!
    I have been placed in Accenture through campus recruitment with a CTC of 3.25L. I have also applied in IBM coz i know the IBM-HR of Asia-pacific region. They are offering 7.1L.
    I am confused as to what to do because i know that growth opportunities in Accy are immense and promotion is very frequent. Work environment is also good there with less work pressure. I am confused about IBM though. What should i do?? Should i leave Accy if i get a call from IBM?

    • shekar says:

      Hi Mohit

      I am an IBMer, personally I do not recommend IBM.

      BUT, as you mentioned BM-HR of Asia-pacific region is a known person to you, go for it. Because in IBM you need a godfather to grow. Go for any location of IBM they are professional “EXCEPT KOLKATA”. Plan kolkata if you are a bengaly. As other regions are treated as out casts, which would effect your rating also.

      • Sink says:

        Thats true… am an IBMer for the past 8 years. You need to have a godfather to grow. If you have one, you will be top rater, excellent performer, etc. Everything is in the hands of your manager.

        Hi Mohit, I do not think IBM Kolkata is doing any different than other locations.I have worked for 3 location in IBM India Noida,Pune and Kolkata and I am from Delhi. I have found this regional biasness in every location. That is common Indian nature.Go to Pune and you will see how Marathi people get advantage there,same holds for Noida if you are from Delhi.

    I worked for a faggot sr exec who desperately believed managers should also perform coding, testing etc.

    Well, I did try the best; after all the team
    comprised of highly unskilled IT workers.

    The company just doesn’t have proper competencies.

    Anyways somehow managed to tide over problems, ran pillar to post to make both ends meet and satisfy the grumpy US client team.

    Beware the client team is more political than the client themselves as IDC is their fav punching bag.

    Ultimately when the hour arrived Mr Faggot (SR EXEC) denied any recognition/promotion.

    He promply put forth the excuse that still I was involved in technical and low level design work which was contradictory. Talk about getting fired for cleaning boss’es closet !

    I promptly packed my bags and ran faster than ever. Truth is this is a place where mediocrity rules and
    industry rejects fill top management strategists.

    My experience says TCS is best company to join

    Benefits:

    Good work life balance
    Transperent salary structure
    Ample onsit opportunities

    As far as Accenture is concerned as i know is a **** **** ***

    Hopeless work life balance
    useless traning and knowledge sessions
    Less in hand salary

    My take on IBM

    I have been working with IBM for 4yrs months… joined as fresher…Saw ups and downs… And I do not know how it is like to work with others companies. However, IBM is a good place to work if you know how you can get yourself well-placed. A good rapport with manager does helps.But in IBM, the toughest thing is to understand its processes and requirements. Once you understand them and strive to stick with them, you will grow.

    I won’t disagree with the fact that in IBM, managers play vital role. Quite depends on hows you manager is. I had a decent time. I joined as associate and now I am a senior system engineer. Though, salary is not that high, but I started on low and I can say it doubled over this patient 4 years. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi…
    I am with Accenture from 15th july 2010 and currently on LOA(Leave of absence) from October 2011 for 6months as I got married and had to travel to US and stay here for few more months. I had a bond of 1 year and have completed it in July 2011. I want to leave my company now but they have a notice period of 3months to be served or else I need to back out by paying them my 3months of my gross salary (appx 100k) . What if I do not pay the money and just quit? I am not expecting a relieving or experience letter. My only concern is about “Can they take any legal action against me?”

    • ex-accenture employee says:

      They can’t take any legal action and in your case they wouldn’t anyway as you were in LOP. If you are not looking for a relieving letter or experience letter, you can just quit. but i would suggest stay for 3 months, because you will be assigned no project as you have just come back from the leave of absence and the 3 months u will be on bench. all you have to do is just come sign and take home your monthly salary.

      I’d suggest you join google if you’d like to enjoy work rather than work less (work will be boring though) and earn more.
