I was just a Knowledge Transfer Contractor
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 24, 2018
Overall, my purpose was to train Tech Mahindra team members in Bangalore to take over my job. That part was acceptable. The job I was performing didn't change from the company that outsourced me. Tech Mahindra had a difficult time administering me as an employee. They didn't realize our team worked holidays, so holiday pay was difficult to secure. Getting accurate overtime pay was a struggle. I really don't know much about the inner workings of Tech Mahindra, because it was understood I was only on a temporary contract. I enjoyed my teammates in Bangalore. I'm not sure enough time was allotted for knowledge transfer, but that is beyond my control. I really can't judge what the workplace culture is at Tech Mahindra because I worked remotely. My time with Tech Mahindra was so brief I really didn't form an overall judgement of it as a company. In the area of my interaction in terms of HR, I found it to be the most daunting aspect of my employment.
allowed me to be autonomous
never really felt a part of the company
