VPP in my company….

The total associates joining VPP [Virtual Pool Program] in my Company from my HCU accounts 1932 today… including my Unit’s Head and my previous assessor who made an eltp to interview me and asked him to give rating to me…

I belong to HCU Java! I may join the VPP next month or next year or later….

What makes me feel is “I FEEL INSECURE” despite being an associate who contributes to Organisation by working in a project…

  1. BEtter look out from now only. Outside market is very gloomy. If you are in non development activities its very difficult for you to get into another company.

  2. Sriraman was my previous assessor…it was during my confirmation appraisal…i didnot mention this appraisal…i was in Business wait then after ELTP Program.

  3. Hi,

    I have spoken to the Relship manager in my unit n he told us that the VPP was a one time activity. SO after they decide on it now others wont be added to it later on. Its not a garantee but thats what he told us.

    • @ Harini, No one in Satyam-Mahindra other than the top management knows whether the VPP is a one time activity.

      Infact another list is coming out for HR -Finance and other support people where instead of VPP there is direct lay off.

      for those who might be unaware of this… one side mahindra was sending associates from all bands (including I & I alpha bands) on VPP (& some direct OUT too), on the other hand a few selected BI & I band associates have been given a PROMOTION as well as a GOOD hike at this time .. Imagine that!!!

      Plus the basic reason why Mahindra is sending Satyam associates on VPP is such that it can fill in the new work requirements from the Physical bench of Tech-Mahindra as and when the requirements come in.. hence the employees of TM who are on bench are utilized at the expense of Satyam Associates…

      so what ever be , no person other than the top management of satyam knows whats gonna happen!!!!

  4. Tech Mahindra looking for java architect.. not within its 40000 technically strong workforce but in the WWW.
    We all know that MahindraSatyam has a lot of resources in their erstwhile Service Offering team in the guise as Architects. Many of them who are chamchas to the management are still sticking around this company.

    Why not choose from them if not from VPP and why looking in the open market.. What this reflects…Who is missing skills.. the HR of this company or these developers..

  5. I strongly suggest that you move on lookng forward for a new job before it is too late.

    Read the words carefully. VPP is a ONE TIME ACTIVITY but that does not mean that there are no layoffs. In VPP, TM paid 4 months basic which is 2months more than what is there in employment contract.

    Please understand one point. The minute you are not business worthy (read generating more revenue than you can earn in next 4 tears), you can be thrown out

    I was like you despite of my experience, hanging around in the company while all my colleagues were actively looking around for jobs after December 16th. I thought I was contributing to the stability of the comapny but in the end… all my friends got jobs but not me.
