Life at Hexaware

Life at Hexaware

First job is like a First love. It is always pleasant to think about both. I graduated in the year 2006 and joined Hexaware as fresher. I was given a month training in Pollachi. The climate of Pollachi in July was as cool as the climate of Chennai in December. Hexaware training head stated that “Training period is like a honeymoon period” I don’t know about ‘honeymoon’ but I enjoyed training period very well and if his statement is true then I am sure that my honeymoon must be nice!!!.
From the first day to last day of the training in Pollachi i had enough number of C,C++,Java and soft skill sessions. The best part is yoga sessions at 6:30 am. Almost sleeping but still I could manage to do yoga. Surprise tests in the night were interesting things and the most interesting things were when most of the students complained about the food, sessions, the hexaware training head defended and justified that they were doing well.
Next Java and Domain based training started. I felt like a student as well as a professional. Till then I was tangential to Hexaware. After that I was allotted a project called Aircore which is for developing code for airlines. I was impressed on looking the way I was treated.Swipping, Wearing tags Separate cabin, phone, white board and salary!!! etc… I could feel the professionalism but it was no longer existed. First few months I felt happy but after that it had become a routine. My first job was based on JUnit testing for 4 months. I got so many Telugu friends in my projects. It has become a theorem that almost 30 – 40 % Telugu people in all software companies. I enjoyed their company. As far I know Telugu people never keep anything in their mind even if you say something wrong. They are straight forward. My next project was ‘Data Migration’. I got an opportunity to work with good team members ,good leads and good project managers though one of the PMs was very strict .Learnt much in that project. My final project in hexaware was ‘Aircore Depart’. Little bit perplexed because the project had more than 40 people. It was really good. Over all Hexaware gave me a nice experience.

Lessons learnt in hexaware are enormous few of them are below

1. I must be assertive to tell no for no and yes for yes
2. I must be responsible to take the job
3. I must not blame anyone even if the mistakes are not from my side
4. I must not involve in politics
5. I must not back bite

Will continue!!!

First job is like a First love.
Training period is like a honeymoon period
You went for training immediately after getting the job (with nothing job-related in-between). How can someone go for his honeymoon straight after falling in love?
Thank God I just fell in love, and did not venture further.
