#6. Sony

Minato, Tokyo based Sony Corporation is the next most popular employer in the country. Ranked 87th on the 2012 list of Fortune Global 500 companies, Sony is best known for its superior work culture, best-of-the-class benefits, job security and friendly management, and this is the reason why the company is rated so high by the job seekers in the country.  

#5. ONGC

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC), the Indian multinational oil and gas company that produces up to 72 percent of India's crude oil, is arguably the most sought-after employer in the country and this is clearly reflected in the rankings.

1: I have seen IBM India charging 28-30$/hr for some resource and paying 6.52L INR/annum as CTC(means 3.6$/hr)

Are we employees or slaves?
What is India taking pride on its Software Industry Growth?
Is there any regulation to stop this slavery?
Are the regulators themselves corrupted?

IBM India ventures on Disabled and Women drives - the
Pros: IBM creates a good image (like a corrupted politician )
IBM will get resource who are less liable to leave job
(or better asy won't move )
Cons: Some more employment(sorry better to say begging
in your own country for a MNC )

2: Example of Quality of Resource in IBM India(GBS):
[While its an example, it do mean most but not everyone]

Team Lead 1:
One fine day,she comes and says - "Why are you using size() in
for(int i = 1; i < vector.size(); i++){
..some code..
It iterates all objects and calculate the size of vector for
each i"

Developer said to himself - "Are my OOPs knowledge got failed to what she read yesterday night" (actually she was terribly wrong)

Team Lead 2(Advisory IT Architect):
When faced to handle concurrent transaction requests in EJB(Java), He suggested - "We can do it by 2-Phase-Locking in Java"
Wait a minute: I have heard
Thread Double checking pattern
2-Phase-Locking in DBase(growing and shrinking)
EJB Transaction Boundaries/Isolation levels(READ_COMMITED..etc)

What is 2-Phase-Locking in Java ??? (good for nothing fellows)

Solution Architect1:
They take pride on having their Excel Sheet selected in India for resource planning and estimation.
WOW - I thought he will come up with some out of box technical stuff!

3: Ask any Google/Facebook/Amazon employee who were ex-IBMer.
They will "Spit on the Grave" for IBM.

Wonder how Forbes, Barron overlook the real face behind this BlueBrand. I think they are not aware of IBM India.

Why doesn't India have guts to scrutinize IBM India?
Who are authorized to reveal the secrets of IBM India?

4: Hi,

IBM should not be listed.Many will disagree but none need to critisize or jugde my individual opinion here.Following is about IBM GBS:

In India its the lowest payer among MNCs. Somehow, I don't know! even if you get 2-3L INR more as CTC compared to CTS ot TCS you will find you are getting 2-3L less /annum.
Most Team Leaders/Project Managers place their hands on back pocket wallet at each EOD and say "All is Well" if spent 500-800INR on car-fuel.
90% Employees take pride as IBMer while being in IBM(coz there is no alternative)
If a Microsoft resume arrives on your desk for a challenging IBM GBS position PMs say "leave that CV" (IBM can't afford to pay...ha ha ha ridiculous).

18% variable :literally have to beg to get 10%.
But you have to pay tax for that 18%, though your money being grabbed by IBM in the end.
IBM even don't show it as their income to Govt. Neither they pay tax.
There should be some Employee union to throw away this kind of Org from our country.
