As the saying rightly goes, it is also important that a great workplace is inevitable to fill up that large part of our lives, and I can firmly say that Tata Elxsi is one such “great place to work” in many ways.
The work environment in Tata Elxsi has always been very conducive, stable, and employee-friendly. The Company values its employees and their professional development and is sensitive towards their personal needs. This work culture makes us feel valued to work and to go that extra mile for this Company.
The long tenure of most of the employees in this Company who have adapted the Company’s culture and have a strong understanding of the policies and processes can be invaluable to the new employees.
As part of the Legal department, the numerous collaborations and interactions that I have daily with the internal and external customers for contract closures and other legal issues have always been pleased with the great group of colleagues who support, share their experience, and work together.
The Company’s Senior Management is not sequestered away from the employees; they are refreshingly down-to-earth, approachable, compassionate, supportive, and helpful.
“Live every day to learn something new” has been my motto, and the enriching learning experience that comes every day with every new challenge has been remarkable and enduring.
I am glad to be part of Tata Elxsi - the right place to learn and execute my thoughts and ideas that allow me to grow and help others grow and gain experience.

Working with thought leader clients in the landscape, provides constant challenges and opportunities to stretch our limits constantly. My teams are competing with the world’s best organizations, and ensure they stay on top by keeping themselves abreast with the latest technologies, processes and trends. We bring continuous improvements and value-added innovations, and IP solutions to the customer, in today’s DevSecOps environment. Working with cross cultural teams around the globe while ensuring teamwork, collaboration and quality delivery is highly motivating for me. Career in TATA Elxsi has taught me valuable lessons in business financial management, and dynamics of team management.
A Day in My Life
Each day brings a fresh challenge by itself and ensure no two days are alike. I encourage my teams to be active on Online medium, so that quick decisions and discussions can be enabled without resorting to email chains. A typical day will consist of Account reviews, proposal and solution discussions with team, team management and sync-up with my boss. Towards the second half of the day, as Europe and then US wakes up, customer meetings, onsite team and sales meetings pick up. We ensure [email protected], by forming small teams and holding short Fun activities and competitions, to keep the team spirit and morale high, and to encourage collaboration across project and team boundaries. Friday afternoons are usually occupied by a meeting with all my managers – that help to take stock of the week that just passed by, and prepare ourselves for the coming week, as we all sign off for a (hopefully) refreshing weekend with Friends and Family!
What I do?
I do what I enjoy the most - interacting with customers in the automotive domain from all over the world. Talking to them on latest technology trends in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems like Driver Monitoring, Cabin Monitoring, eMirror, 360-degree surround view, Cross Traffic Alert and Autonomous Driving vehicles is something I do day in and day out. Creating and envisioning technical solutions and proposals to their problem statements in these areas gives me an ecstatic feeling.
That’s just one facet of my job profile, the other involves planning and ideating on the roadmap for our team on the new technologies to be adopted into our solutions along with upskilling my team members and getting them ready to solve the unique problems.
A day in my life
My day starts with a gratitude note to the unknown followed with my long morning walks.
My typical day at work includes – review meetings for projects, brainstorming with team, customer meetings, reading on new technological advancements, new proposal preparation etc.
I enjoy gardening and maintain a small garden with lots of flowers and vegetables, this which receives most attention after my work.
I enjoy classical dance and I’m getting trained even now in a classical dance form.
I’m a staunch believer of the statement “Whatever the human mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve” so do not limit your creativity and imagination, sky is the limit!
What I do:
In my fulfilling career at Tata Elxsi, I had the opportunity to work on many projects which were diverse in domain technologies and technically challenging. My job, on one hand, requires me to work closely with Semiconductor customers to help them with their R&D and Marketing requirements in the IoT, Security and Embedded MCU products. My job also needs me to guide the technical team which comprises young and energetic engineers to experienced engineers.
On the other hand, I work on building expertise in new initiatives and emerging trends so that we are ready when the opportunity in the space arises.
A day in my life:
During the day, I interact with people both inside (Project team, Management, Marketing and Sales) and outside (Customer & Vendors) the organization. For the project teams, we have daily catch-up on the progress and help resolve any technical & process issues. And in my spare time, I study topics which are relevant to company's road map and plan for work assignments to young engineers in those areas. At the end of the day, I check on the meetings planned next day and prepare for them.

Tata Elxsi has given me immense opportunities to challenge myself in many uncomfortable situations, develop possible solutions, and grow my skillset across its competency verticals.
A day in my life:
I work with multiple clients that include OEM and Tier-1 from the APAC region.
My day starts with a high note greetings to my team, conducting stand-up meetings with my next level Engineering team, responding to my emails, and ensuring that clients and management communicate with expected information and support sales to fill the technical gaps communicating with new client projects. I usually like to end my day by taking note of my to-do list for the next day and wait for peaceful but unplanned eventful weekends with family and new things to learn.
