As we all know IT forms the backbone of our country’s economy. The recent weak global economical condition is mainly due to the weak IT market. The following are some problems that are faced by an IT professional.

1. BENCHING
2. TECHNICAL UPGRADATION
3. SHORTAGE OF TIME
4. REDUCTION OF SALARY
5. RECRUITING FRESHERS



BENCHING:

Benching is a common process that is employed mainly in MNCs. Companies are given MNC status after it satisfies a specific criteria. One of those criteria is the number of employees. In order to show that they have the required number of employees to get the MNC status, the companies hire more people. These extra employees that they recruit are not involved in any project and they are given salary. Once the company decides to cut down their employees, these people are the ones who are targeted.


TECHNICAL UPGRADATION:

Software field is developing in leaps and bounds and everyday there are updates being developed for each and every software that we use. The software professionals have to upgrade their knowledge about these changes because for every certain period of time, technical examinations are being conducted by the company. The employees who consistently perform well are kept in the company while the others are added to a danger list. These people are either depromoted or thrown out of the company. So software professionals are under severe pressure throughout their lifetime working as an employee.


SHORTAGE OF TIME:

At present IT companies are trying to get rid of most of their employees in order to cut down their cost and increase their profit. For this reason they are imposing tuff projects to their employees and they give very less time to complete their project. Since their time is short, employees have to work day and night in order to complete the project within the specified time. They are constantly being pressurized by the higher authorities.


REDUCTION IN SALARY:

In order to cut down their cost, IT companies are reducing the salary given to its employees. They try to drive their employees off by giving them very low salaries. People with experience tend to resign their jobs when they are given low salaries.


RECRUITING FRESHERS:

Since freshers agree to work for very low salaries, companies tend to recruit more freshers over experienced candidates. This effectively decreases the company’s expense but it degrades the company’s performance.
