Top Firing & Top Secure IT Companies in India

Top Most Firing IT Companies in India

1) IBM — Right now this is the most firing company for IT professionals.
In the last 6 months, this company has fired nearly 20% of their employees
because of BG check and performance issues. This is the most insecure
company from an IT professional’s point of view. They don’t have any
strategic plans at HR policies regarding employee security. No appraisals
(maximum 10%).

2)TCS — Previously it was an government IT Company . Now a days TCS also
becoming firing IT company. Recently they fired around 500 people.( employees
below 2 years of experience) and TCS lost many projects
recently( especially British Telecom Projects).

3) Accenture — This is second top most firing company. The firing rate
is around 10%. This depends upon outsourced projects; they have a unique
system where Accenture development centers around the world bid for a
project coming into the company. Currently Philippinescentre is taking the
cake and the Indian centers are in a firing mode.

4) WIPRO — Firing people with very frequent back ground checks and
firing them with out even experience letters and relieving letters (will
mention as terminated from services)but will promise the employees that
they will retain them. After the project is over they will fire away. Will
threaten of criminal cases against such employees if they oppose the move
and has also filed against some.

5) Intel — Recently joined the league. Running in heavy losses, hence
firing 3000 employees in the Banglore center in a phased out manner.

6) CTS — Has a steady firing policy (checking the Educational background
and previous employment and also employee performance in work). In a
Recent HCL walk-in, around 50% attendees were from this company. Sadly the
I-pods have not helped them.

7) CSC — Excellent package but fires folks in Background check and those
on bench regularly. Recently fired 400+ employees from its subsidiary

8) Satyam — Currently stopped firing. The Attrition rate is very high.
No firing from 2005 until now when 1000 employees were fired in Hyderabad.

10) Patni —- They fired so many employees that currently they are facing
understaffing and deficiency with number of employees. Very high attrition

11) Keane India —- This USA based company is always involved in firing
employees. Although they proudly say that they dont have hire and fire
policy. Recently they fired java and as400 professionals after which most
of the employees have started to pack their bags. Employees change this
company within 1 year. So take care before accepting offers from these

Secure IT Companies in India

1) Microsoft — Has projects till 2050. Who knows? What happened to
yahoo can happen to Microsoft even tommorow

2) EDS — Most secure company in India. Not laid off any of its employees
even during 2001. Has lots of projects in Defense and financial areas

3) HP — Dream Company. In-house and outsourced projects

4) Infosys — Dream Job. On a way to achieve the status of a secured,
stable Govt. company. But have to work from 9AM to 9PM.
Suitable for the workaholics alone.

5) AOL, Google and Yahoo – Best companies to work with, great job
satisfaction as well as great salary and work environment. Rarely fires an
employee. As they are internet based companies’ they offer lots of
opportunities to grow.

6) HCL — A good company to be in. Called as a “retirement company.” Nothing
much happens there

7) HSBC— This is the most secure company. It has never fired any
employee, even when they know that the employee is showing fake

employee and gives great perks & incentives, lot of projects in kitty.
Minimal level of attrition.

9) KPIT Cumminns Infosystems Limited —- This is the most secure company

    Tech mahindra is unique.
    If you are brhamin and marathi you can continue in tech mahindra pune for ever wihtout doing any work. Just need to find a a new stable project belonging to non marathi and invade it.
    During recession tech mahindra quickly did a region and caste profiling and allocated proejcts only marathi and kannad and brahmin employees, all other were in put in pool called CWB and labelled as unfit for rehiring and fired wiht 2 month basic pay. it even forgot that some them were promoted just few months ago.

    In tech mahindra pune it is all about being joshi, kulkarni, sharma, bhatt, bhatia, tilly, kar, jain, chapekar, deshpande,karve,
    If not announce that you are brahmin, you will be shielded from any problem nd wil lget promotion esop, and hike wihtout doing any thing, every year a excellent non mrathi will be sacrificed and his/her achievement will be shown as your and you will get all beniefits of top performance without ever performing,
    Being brahmin and marathi/kannada get you the plum IDU / SDU cabinet position who hold control over people appraisal and project allocations. During downturn these brhamins decide who should be fired. so non brhamin gets fired (ofcouse unfairly)
    tech mahindra great telecom software company.. Do grab the opportunity if you are brahmin non brahmin ?? take care mobbing is rampant in tech mahindra
    somegreat brhamin&marathi syndicate leaders of tech mhiandra are ved prakash, sudhir skalkar, jayant joshi, jayant kulkarni, sacheen kulkrani, abhijit karve, pk sharama, lk bhatia, pallavi chapekar, praksh devan, ajay dehspande,sunil rege(a saraswat race icon) vinnet mamgain yeahwant satam, ashirwad tillu, manoj upadyay, prasad joshi abhay joshi

    I companies like Tech mahendra fire only non marathis.

    Middel mgmt in tec mahendra is kannada and marahi brahmins only. non one else will be promoted as SPM. South indian will be fired if he/she wants to PM.
    If a project under marathi mngr is failing he will be relased and replaced with non mrathi mngr who will be blamed and fired for failure of previous mrathi mngr. Big syndicate. ESOPS are reserved for marathis and 90% will be given to pune people.

    If any outside complains to HR HR asks why you are in this company if you are facing problems. You shud have gone long back, oh you are not good enough so you stayed in tecm

    very nice information. thanks.

    Hi Abhijeet, Uday…
    It really does not matter if this information is from Forrester Research or Business today, as they too come under the categories of a company. They never can focus on the ground realities, unless they earn profit from a mix of true, false and company sponsered information and advt.

    Such blogs, are the true source of information ( more than any newspaper or tv channel), as these generally comes directly through the guys we know around. And also, because not only one but hundreds of people say similar things throughout the internet and many times a year. πŸ™‚

    Infogain in noida is the wors company

  6. Likem January 20, 2010 at 9:11 am #

    This may not be a correct place to get information.. but recently my younger brother applied for a fresher job for web development at Indore based company “Intercom Online” (
    As he reported to me :
    The company takes 18-months bond from the fresher candidate, and 50,000 security deposit. The salary is 6000/month. If the candidate leaves breaks the bond, the money is not refundable and no experience or leaving certificate is provided.

    Pls confirm this, if this is true. However this type of bonding is much common at Indore, but I mainly want to know, how much legal it is.

    Some companies took advantage of recession period, although they were running into profits. These companies fired employees and told them that they are in loss.

    Hi guys….

    Everything is depend on your luck..

    In IT the luck matters… really…

  9. Giri Kolanupaka November 9, 2009 at 8:51 pm #

    KPIT is the worst company I have ever seen. I have joined this company after their false offerings and fell for it. They made me go through a very bad situation (can email anybody interested everything if asked).

    They literally washed their hands after they realized things went out of hands and spoiled my entire career. They made me go through a very embarrassing situation and they never even cared about it. There was no proper documentation made, no proper guidance and visa given to me for my onsite assignment and made me get deported back from the port of entry and now, this has created a black mark on my career because of these people. I cannot now apply for any visa and cannot enter in to this county (UK) for the next 10 years, just because of improper documentation and negligence. They never even realized that this is their mistake and have given me any compensation for what they have done to me. In fact, they made me quit this company after they made me transfer my knowledge to my replacement on onsite and made me quit the company after 5 months. Everything was done (training my replacement, staying at a different city to get this done) with my own expense. I could have even filed a law suit against this company, but left them on humanitarian grounds. So, never ever believe this company and they try to attract with all false promises.

  11. Chriss January 28, 2009 at 9:48 am #

    Hi guys,

    This is saturation point of IT field, People are dumped software applications in Market. Thats y companies are firing people. No company having policy to take employees and firing them, If they found any Back round verification is mismatch they will fire employees.

    Don’t worry guys every body will get job as per their skills.
    IT market will get boom soon.

  12. Manoj Jain January 15, 2009 at 12:08 am #

    why Microsoft added in secure company list whether it is firing 15000 employees of it till the end of jan.

  15. sumeet December 10, 2008 at 5:03 am #

    d jobs r n must b secured only only who perform…IT is not a 10-6 job…1 must put in his/her heart n soul in it…d companies r not foolish 2 invest huge amount in non-performing guys…why shud they?
    so guys get up n start workin instead of abusing ur own companies…

  16. Bibhukishor September 28, 2008 at 10:18 am #

    YES KPIT started firing now a days be carefull.

  17. Adith August 26, 2008 at 11:41 pm #

    Hi Kate,
    Interesting write up on the top firing countries in India.
    You mentioned that TCS lost the BT project…Would love to have more details on that if available. Thanks

  18. sujan August 7, 2008 at 8:22 pm #

    KPIT cummins is not a secured company…. please believe in me

  19. siva July 12, 2008 at 10:24 pm #

    Hi! Guys! Who do you bother about the source? It is a very interesting reading that too on a boring Sunday morning.

  20. amit June 26, 2008 at 7:17 am #

    … Unless u breach their policies like forwarding obscene PORNOgraphic mails .. πŸ™‚

  21. Uday Kadam June 25, 2008 at 10:10 pm #

    Hi Abhijeet,

    Really good reply.NO COMPANY feels comfortable to let go of good people.


  22. Syed June 25, 2008 at 7:44 am #

    EDS is also not a secure compnay. It’s too firing employee frequently.

  23. Abhijeet Basu June 23, 2008 at 6:40 am #

    Tell me one thing guys….what is the basis of this data? This list of the most trusted and most untrusted companies comes from what source? Is there a Forrester Research? Is it a Business Today study? WHAT? You cant write anything that you wish for. I am working for one of these companies that you have mentioned and am in half a mind to sue you!!!

    Furthermore, I would be worried about firings if I was not honest to my job. NO COMPANY feels comfortable to let go of good people. Given the money spent on hiring them and training them and with the fear of internal information reaching competitors. And if there was a cut….hell we are Indians….the best of the IT breed in the world. There are more than 50000 IT companies listed in India (NASSCOM) and I am sure that some of these companies would be more than ready to get some good talents like you
    Stop whining guys….life is not about thinking how to avoid losing….but about winning….and being happy

  24. amit June 18, 2008 at 3:58 am #

    Looks like Mr Manu has very close contacts with JESUS and even for getting a “Hello World” program coded, you pray to JESUS for help.

    “ seem to be in a comfortable position today… Pray to God that you will be in ever..”

    U guessed right. I am in a comfortable position as of today, and if I fail to continue with the same, I really need to work on myself rather than praying to God for getting me my good days back. Probably JESUS helps only guys like U who really need Him even for searching stuffs in google, but sadly ur Jesus never helped me in that way.

    If my company fires me, I gotta move on to get a new job. May be too much of a big deal for U, not for me,not for many others like me.

    If all the Frank’s become Mr Ajim PremJee, that will be a Golden Day for India.Dont worry whether Mr PremJee will be a Frank that day or not.Mr Premjee starts looking from a sight where urs vision stops working,they r not born everyday.If there would have been no Wipro Technologies,probably Mr Frank sitting in Wipro AC office and utilizing company’s internet resources for such bloggings..would have been selling nuts in MG Road with Manu πŸ™‚

    U got a job, U got a platform, U r getting ur salary.
    Not its ur time to give back and return the favor rather than asking from the company all the time for job security and good work.If wipro will run its business as per Manu’s demand, Mr Premjee will join the pool of job seekers in few days. In case Wipro fires U if its busines demands it to do so, take gratitude for the good time it had given to U and move on for ur next job hunt.Jus imagine where U would have been if U wldnt have got a job in Wipro !

    If u r competent, U r secure.. no matter what company U work for. If not, better work on urself rather than blaming the company for not giving U a good job.If U dont like the company, leave it, who stops U?

    Probably Mr Manu and Jesus wld agree with me in this regard..
    Still Manu has doubts .. then JESUS help him.

  25. H.C. June 18, 2008 at 1:23 am #

    And this was done in the last 2 months, to at least 700 odd employees of Sapient.

  26. H.C. June 18, 2008 at 1:21 am #

    Guys, did anyone of you hear/know what Sapient did recently?

    See what happened…

    1. You reach your office at 9:00 in the morning;
    2. Being called in for a meeting with the director;
    3. Told that SAPIENT is RESTRUCTURING itself;
    4. So needs to kick your sorry ass out;
    5. As you were on bench for 1 month;
    6. Doesn’t matter if you were actually being assigned a new project by the end of the week itself;
    7. Doesn’t matter if your project manager does not acually know anything about what firing session is actually about to start;
    8. You are in tears and shock after the news;
    9. You are NOT ALLOWED to return to your desks after the news is broken to you;
    10. YOU ARE ESCORTED VIA THE BACK DOOR TO THE COMPANY GATE, as if you had lost your way in and the company needs to make sure so one sees you on the way out. All you PERSONAL STUFF is lying outside the gate when you reach there while escorted;
    11. You are given a month’s time of sitting at you home and told to never report during that time.
    12. Your peers lucky to be still inside are being given direct warnings telling the “YOU ARE NEXT”!!
    13. Your CEO channels a mail nationwide Sapient, justifying the action taken, backing it up with the positive changes in the offing…
    14. You get your letters etc delivered @ home, being printed and delivered by an outsourced firm specializing in carrying out this ‘DIRTY WORK’;
    15. You are still jobless wondering what the hell went wrong with your work and job;
    16. You are insecure, hopeless, and apprehensive about tomorrow…

    And the SAPIENT towers stand tall and are still going strong with the axe, cutting all roots, and employees who don’t matter anymore …

    Freshers just out of college, 2 years, 3 years, 5 years XP holders.. it just doesn’t matter…

    So SAPIENT, why are you not in the list above?

    Talk back – hurricane.cometh at

  27. vex June 16, 2008 at 6:37 am #

    Amit, actually everyone has gratitude for their comp (good or bad). Problem is the way comp do firing.
    If everyone will become entrepreneur like Azim Premji who will work as s/w engg? when they give job to so many people they should think what will hapen to those people (and their families) when fired?

    Has anyone heard of Quark Inc. which managed to do a bulk firing of some 400-600 employee in one day. and managed to reduce its headcount from 2000+ to 200+ in less than 1 year. I know lots of people (who felt heat) they still say its good comp but worst part is the way/reason for which they fire.

    just my $0.2 πŸ˜‰

  28. Surya June 13, 2008 at 4:34 am #

    Yahoo deemed to be a secure org? What about the recent times where they fired almost 1500 emps all over the world?

  29. Manu June 12, 2008 at 8:30 am #

    Hey Amit … Well done…. you seem to be in a comfortable position today… Pray to God that you will be in ever….

    There are companies which kick the ass for very stupid things…

    And if everyone become Ajit Premji… then who are goin to work….

    Understand the sentiments of the writer…. He has listed the support(encouragement) shown to acquire a person X and at the same time, the same reason is shown to kick him out….

    If all the farmers think of making money without growing anything and acting a intermediate channel… then where is the food item to sell…

    If you are in a company like Accenture, then you would have already been kicked out for opening this blog, forget your saying ( Show gratitude for the comapany giving opportunity).

    Frank… would have shown gratitude … if the claimed company was giving an opportunity to prove that the candidate is not wrong / if wrong, a sufficient minimal period for the candidate to look up for some other opportunity….

    By this time Frank would have prayed to JESUS: Make Amit in a dead need of Salary and kick him out of the company without a minute of notice on a salary day… The situation would be Amit would meet JESUS at the EOD…..

    Look into the sentiment of a person… Who has served the company ( Pvt / Public), if a person has taken a deep ownership that it is his company and he should be part of the development of the company, he would have worked 12+hrs a day meeting all his projects/ clients tough demands, helping his team mates and when the project is over.. the final day… This person would be in a lot of joy with a lot of praise from the client and he is also happy for increasing the Company’s trust(this is gratitude) to the client.

    Do you expect the company to kick your ass (on that final day) for doing this service…..

    Look Mr.Amit… X is not just losing a job. He is a very capable person. That is what brought him into your company. He can get another job within no time. But he will lose confidence on the entire system.

    One big man said : Love your job, not the company.

    Guyz… You are tend to lose job though you work too much or not at all…. Dont lose your life for the company… As per Amit it is Pvt… So keep it pvt and dont work for the company.. work for your pvt…

    Anyway the days are already tough for such great firing companies…. They keep on Advt for new people as they have kicked great talents out… As the people are talented… only opportunists are taking it up.. Real talents are not opting for these companies in this new trend….

    There will be days… where these firings will have to fire themseleves out of the market losing the trust of the employees.

    Mr.Amit… a number of such Franks is Mr.Premji…. He is not producing with a single hand…

    If all these Franks become Premji.. then Premji will become Frank…. Amit will become JESUS… πŸ™‚

    The basic Human value he was talking is…. The Employee is being hit deep inside in the name of Fire… Sensitivity in the person can lead to any disastrous situation…. So if Mr.Don really wants to have great people, then he can kick him in a better softer way… After all we are all human and we are working for betterment of things together with a good team spirit… and we should have humanity towards our neighbouring human… else you may become JESUS or he may become JESUS by accident…. πŸ™‚

    All the Best Folks…..

  30. amit June 12, 2008 at 1:37 am #

    Its not about wipro or mahindra or blah blah ..
    Its about our high expectations from private firms for no good reasons.They r private finally .. and they ought to treat us the way they want to .If u r not comfortable .. better leave the organisation .. This is the best and worst part as well of a PVT sign

  31. amit June 11, 2008 at 3:21 am #

    Thanx Mt reddy for supporting .. but looking at ur English and spell mistakes, I wonder how u r surviving in this industry πŸ˜‰

  32. signtheta omega June 11, 2008 at 1:37 am #

    What about tech mahindra??

  33. Satheesh Reddy June 5, 2008 at 6:01 am #

    Amit i completly accepts your openion…the guy who have a telent they can serve in this booming industry…

  34. amit May 29, 2008 at 5:04 am #

    You cannt count on these private companies. They are giving you a job and its upto them to terminate it and kick you off without any reason being mentioned. This is,I think, what the word “private” is meant for, if I am not bad in English.
    As U said, few years back even IITians didnt used to get a job, now even a fresher does, so be thankful to the IT boom and the companies like Wipro,Infosys to make it happen, otherwise many of the so called TALENTED guyz sitting in AirConditioned office and blaming their own company and posting such blogs thru internet using the company’s resources only, these guyz probably would have been lied somewhere on the corner of streets without a job.

    If U think U have got the potential, don’t depend on a private company to help U bring ur potential out. India severely need potential guyz at this hour and U gotta show it off on ur own rather than blaming some pvt company that it kicked ur ass off jus when ur potent was about to come with flying colors.

    We as an Indian rarely take gratitude for the favors done to us and that makes our poor image even worse.Its Mr Azim Premjee’s Wipro who has put India on a global map, not guyz like U who r putting such a blog abt their own company, and we cann’t understand what it takes to be Mr Azim Premji.
    They r not born everyday.

    So buddy, learn to take some gratitude and give some respect to someone who did some favor to U.. !!

  35. Karthik March 25, 2008 at 9:40 am #

    Hey Frank! what you said is absolutely right!!
    Wipro plays a lot of cheap tricks. They just want to show headcount and get some projects and be famous
