Full of bull shit mid management and shitty top management( exceptions are there)
Let us start with Meher Afroz, She used to be Senior Project Manager kind of role in GE. Due to Moorthy's aashirvath, she reached the top most post when the GE gang took over MS IT India, lots of people including Moorhty got lost in the journey. But Meher some how still is able to keep her job despite many of her previous screw ups like bloating LPO four times for the sake of bumping up her own designation. People were laughing at her when she disagreed to report to Ramkp when LPO came under his portfolio and standing adjacent to him showing her ego in public. She don't know the basics of programming ( she thinks people code with telugu instead c#, dot net), such is the technical knowledge.
For God sake, stop this diversity nonsense argument and FIRE her. You can even check with the women employees in her own team and in direct team how egoistic she is.
Among the 3 principal/PUM she has, 1 guy is GE shit. Better fire 2 of them and place the whole organization under one principal/PUM. Realign this whole BG org to other leaders like Ramkp as an additional management work.
They sacked some good long term guys recently due to manager relationship thing, calling position cruciality. BRUTAL.
God save rest of the group if this trend continues. Go and pick your manager daily morning and drop him in the evening, this is the only way we can continue maintain our rapport with our managers.
Tentative leader of MS IT India, too much of over head. Heard he was not a great top notch performer or anything of that sort when he used to work for Sudeep in MS IDC.
MS IT and Moorthy helped this incompete Principal man to become GM. He started bullying other leaders publicly which was not taken lightly among his peers, he survived just due to Moorthy's aashirvath again.
7 principal/PUMs- Half of them were oldies who failed miserably in their previous orgs. Cut this 7 principal/PUM as 3. Lot of those principal/PUMs are just managing 10-12 people which can be done by any Sr level (62-63) people also. Nagender team also got hit by the recent layoffs.
People hated to see Nagender's unfriendly face before they left(kicked out) out of "Rocking RxD".
About Nagender, downgrade him as PUM as like his previosu MS IDC role since he has not achieved any of the major commitments of the RxD( also too much of low morale) and continue ask him to run the show. He has MS material with him, but too much of arrogance.
Certainly rip him out of the tentaive 'MS IT India GM & representative of leadership' post and ideal candidate is Ramkp, who is down to earth, connect with people still.
One great achievement which we can't forget is, Kicking out the great Tarun Sareen. Sreenivas was a PM II 5-6 years back, can we dream about becoming a GM in such short tenure. We can if we dine the GM like Moorthy in our house regularly whenever he visits Redmond and do massage at appropriate times, get the strong old people kicked out and put your boys there.
All Moorthy's aashirvath again. Tarun was running the org ( exception, he's also from GE, but not crap) perfectly and kicked out very bluntly. Sad thing happened for the CoE.
We will wonder how mad Sreenivas and his leadership is, when he continue to nominate the same 'sharepoint assistant' of MS IT India for the each and every sharepoint site he creates for EXPO, goldstar, IT Pro,etc shitting awards. Guys- sharepoint not equals to INNOVATION. find out the real innovation in the process, development, engineering management style, etc some of your own team members are doing and award it. AIT CoE is the only fortunate CoE get to keep lot of the oldies yet, unforunate thing is everyone is struggling despite their loyalty, passion for the company and division.
Though Sreenivas came due to Moorthy's recommendation, he has good intentions most of the time. Greatest problem he has is, he do not know how to execute.
Not a miserable failure, need close coaching and mentoring so that connection with all grass root is made possible to set the org for success. Sreenivas org did not get much impacted during this layoff, except handful of the impacts.
Never saw this Mr.American ( he shows off this often) in his room. His first great achievement was kicking out Adhunik Chug who used to wonderfully manage whole of GTS and other non Moorthy's org on dotted manner. He gave undue promotions to all the leads and made them as his confidants.
Good technical guy, but very poor manager/leader. Always go by the Redmond perspective whenever there were issues in the bridge. Hopefully this guy after bumping his levels, will return back to Redmond with an additional feather in his cap 'offshore management experience'.
Great Principal material, but not worth for people management itself( Dont talk about the leadership). Have not seen his org doing anything useful during this tenure together.
Deepinder brought ASM together and made it intact on his own without any of this guy's help.
ASM team seem to be overloaded with work. ( this is how they escaped the wave 2). Yet to deep dive to see number of SRs and amount of time spent by each support FTE to come up with the exact numbers we can cut as fat. Relocate them to GTSC or place them under GTSC role instead of laying off.
Heard some good oldie boys of InfoSec also got their axe (some GE Crap were also cleaned) during this recent lay off along with winding up of some groups reducing their strength. The guy who sells Infosec coming from the US consulting was pointed as reason behind this failure of InfoSec, clean him from the system if that is the case.
Keep the other directs of this org intact ( if possible give the bloated leaders a level downgrade to digest the hit and save some extra money) and bring all of them under Deepinder. Promote Deepinder, Bid farewell to this over prouded Ted guy soon as he is already done with his mission.( bring team together, lay off the additional buffer).
If possible consider aligning this org under the leadership of Sashikumar, GTSC Bangalore as it involves operation,etc.
He's the only original leader in MS IT India who came on his own from the grass roots without massage, dinner,etc.
There's no point teaching a known learned person how to run his organization. Unfortunately his well run optimized organization also got impacted.
Make this guy as permanent MS IT India Leader, GM and empower him to transfer, get more end to end ownerships from MS IT Redmond.
Ram- Continue your good work and maintain that talk you do with all your grass roots. This is the only thing which is helping you to maintain the health of your organization ( as like your toned gym worked out body) intact.
MS IT India is still bloated with lot of crappy mid management and senior management, trim that fat. You've the talent, prove it to the some times too political redmond counterparts and help them understand it's not you're taking their jobs away.
