It is very inspiring to see how the job scenario has changed in the country. It was just a few decades ago that the jobs meant government institutions and the idea of being a professor or a civil servant were the most coveted options. Then came the era of privatization with the industry giants such as Tata, Infosys and more such service companies occupied the forefront with wider options. But as time progressed, the new era of IT in the country is through the smaller organizations where the chain of command is smaller and the work that gets done is innovative and as a new employee joining a company, it is a smarter move to join an organization where the learnings are more and contributions are widely appreciated.
With this in mind, as I was looking at Great places to work in India, I came across a few organizations which were clearly demarcated based on the size and the number of employees. The large segment with more than 5000 employees are without doubt ruled by companies like Microsoft, EMC, NIIT etc. The mid segment between 500-5000 employees dominated by companies such as Google, SAP Labs, etc. But what I was really keen on is the small sector companies with less than a 1000 employees where the opportunity of contribution is more and so is the chance of recognition. As I was looking at this list, I came across the top 5 best companies in the small size organization list. The list mentions –
- Hitachi Data Systems – which focuses on data integration and analytics for higher level data representation, cloud infrastructures, high end storage reports, etc.
- IntelliGrape Software Pvt. Ltd. – which is the current TO THE NEW Digital which provides business solutions for internet products with its range extending to over 300 companies.
- McAfee – which provides internet security, protection from viruses and potential attacks on the personal data or professional data.
- OSSCube Solutions – which provides web development, mobile phone development, social media development and consulting.
- Tavisca Solutions Pvt. Ltd – which simplifies travel technology and provides online travel interfaces.
This is where my money would ride on as the future for technology where the need for innovation is at its prime and the projects would be of an innovative trend as opposed to an established larger sector where the work involvement is much lesser at an entry level.
I was quite interested in TO THE NEW Digital which is a premium digital services company that combines the power of technology, analytics, marketing and content for digital transformation. It is a team of over 600 people which includes technology evangelists, social media experts, content specialists, and creative mavericks who have transformed businesses of more than 300 companies spread across 30 countries worldwide. TO THE NEW Digital is also a strategic partner of many global companies including Google, Amazon Web Services (AWS), YouTube, DataStax and MongoDB. The company is ranked two among the best 5 places to work in the small segment and also finds a recognition in the top 50 IT companies 2015 as well which makes it a very interesting place to start with its established network and endorsements.
We strongly believe that India is a storehouse of talent with a capacity to bring digital and IT services to a phenomenal level of completion. No wonder it is still the first choice for most big organizations for their IT services and the trend seems to continue irrespective of the restrictions imposed. With the current trend of internet marketing and digital presence, the IT sector is only here to stay and improve the quality of our lives in general.
