Great company to work - 5 years completed already

Great Team but low pay

Pay is significantly lower for a full time employee. A lot of opportunities to learn. They encourage getting certified so that's a plus. Work life depends on the project that you are working on.

Pros

Certification

Cons

Low Pay

Good: Staff augmentation companyBad: Not having enough capabilities and skills, somehow they manage relationships with product companies

Really bad experience with this company. It's all about politics and not focus on productivity, innovation, or build solutions with passion and empathy. Very short term goals they focus on, all about margins, not strategic and moreover always sabotaging ideas,

Pros

None

Cons

Politics, Lacking innovation

Great variety of projects

Enjoy the variety of technology projects to which one is exposed. And there are ample opportunities to grow as a technology professional. Getting certified is also strongly supported by the company.

Pros

Great customers in BFS

Cons

Very restricted by IT policy

a lot of work; pay on time; low-cost insurance

a lot of not paid overtime. Take big projects but do not drive them. Staff is good. It is the company for you if you are going on management line and need to pass few steps/levels fast. If you are a professional with 8-10 years - I think it is not your company (no interesting solutions, no adequate compensation as the company business model does not look for solutions but delivers more burned hours for lesser cost. The company works as an envelope for consulting services; it does not drive even big projects it gets and the team is squashed between the company management and the clients

Pros

fast passing, new technologies.

Cons

insecurity, underpay

Average pay or below with no promotions

401k match is about average although they compute it in a way that means you have to spread out your own contributions to get a full match. If you earn more than 130k (2020) you are not eligible for a match although this number changes slightly every year. You have to wait a full 3 months for eligibility to the 401k program.Vacation is about average to below average. Sick time is average. Holidays in any country besides the US are pretty good - in the US there are only about 10 or so per year.Negotiate a good salary to start, because no matter how well you perform for the client they will not increase your salary later.Bonuses are rare - few and far between.They charge the client at least twice what they pay you.

Pros

401k match, vacation, sick time

Cons

no promotions or raises

It's pretty good

Most of my team are college students and thus the schedules are always super flexible and working around your school schedule. Weekends are free. If you ask early enough, you are pretty guaranteed holidays off. On Mondays, at least before COVID, we always got free lunch. And they had a gym also! The people I work with are also super nice and fun! and the higher ups are right there too and are also really friendly. Supervisors are mostly always available and super helpful, as well. It's a pretty cool company to work for! And it's not that big either, at least the location in Indy which probably helps with talking to everybody at least once while you're there lol

Working place is shared with other professionals with companies we work with it

we have to accomplish on time, with good quality and great designs our deliverable, including automated testing on each feature. That is making our work really challenging and some times difficult to achieve the ambitious goals. We have support on many sources but it is also something built for first time that has a lot of challenges, it is a cycle of create/test/deliver/fix/test/deliver again. So stressful environment if you are not having the right people to solve the problems.

Body Shop. Utterly disorganized, overly bureaucratic and just plain shady

NOTHING this company promised in the offer letter turned out to be true. I only stuck with them since I'd moved for the position and really didn't have another option. There were also difficult pre-employment conditions they didn't mention at all. By the time they mentioned anything about them the timeline to comply was quite short. Every part of the interview and background check process was done twice because they are disorganized. Half or more of their HR is in India with strict instructions to act as if they're in the US. US-based HR people tend not to contact candidates at midnight though. They didn't reimburse as promised for moving expenses. My manager won't return a phone call or email from me unless there's something HE wants. If I have a question about some policy or procedure I'm on my own.

Work life balance & value for employee benefits

Work life balances is given high priority, management was up to employee expectation. Bi-weekly/Monthly one-one sessions with business helps to understand goals

Good Consulting Company to gain valuable industry experience

Anyone interested in furthering their career would do well to work at Virtusa. With a diverse portfolio of technologies and clients, you will gain valuable skills and experience, and work with industry best-practices and mature organizational process. On the down side, you will not have good work-life balance, and project delivery pressures are quite high. Though the base-comp is average for the industry, the per-hour average is low due to the high number of hours you will work each day (10 hrs. on a good day)
Was this review helpful?

Above average comp, but not worth it, and don’t count on it.

If you look at Virtusa’s website and blogs, you see industry experts pontificating about the future of various leading tech verticals. One might think Virtusa was a powerhouse of innovation, R&D, or at least a mill for white papers. But that’s not how Virtusa makes money. Virtusa is a staff augmentation firm.

Excellent company

I had gain a good experience from Polaris for the past 9 years. There is always scope to expend in all dimensions provided if they have good number of clients. I am from PeopleSoft background and I had an opportunity in implementing workday for the client through the implementation partner . I would like to fetch my career in workday which is emerging technology . Where I want to explore and expend my knowledge on workday .
