All the software companies and those in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune and Delhi force their employees to do many worthless certifications and assessments. These certificates validity expire within 2 years, and each attempt at the test costs around 15000 to 20K INR. If a person fails, he or she is forced to pay atleast 15K INR for each attempt. It is a mental torture for software employees given out by their engagement managers and bosses and they create unnecessary unhealthy politics and competition among employees within the team. People having spouses and very young kids will have a very hard time each day balancing their personal time and these horrible software company certification policies.
No certification courses should ever be forced by managers on their subordinates. This is the reason why software companies especially in India are among the worst places to work. Even overtime duty beyond 9 hours per day, night shift duties do not get any extra allowance or compensation proactively by these software companies. The engagement managers and staff augmentation policies in software companies are absolutely terrible.

Unfortunately persecution of religious minorities are there in all the countries of the world, and not only India. If you are planning to settle in Hyderabad, localities such as Jubilee Hills are safer and clean.

I consider Hyderabad a good place to live. I am working in a software company at Gachibowli and had been to on-site. Hyderabad is safe and developing. Lot of product-based software companies are planning to come to Gachibowli and Hitech city corridor.

I have been to Bengaluru and Mumbai and both of them are horrible places. Does Hyderabad also have pathetic Quality of Life like those 2 places? I will be visiting Hyderabad in 2 weeks time.

I have lived in Hyderabad. There are localities that are safe, and not so safe localities in Hyderabad especially at night.
A couple of things I liked about Hyderabad is the tasty food and Hyderabad being an overnight journey to both Pune and Bangalore. The Biryani served in Hyderabad was good for me.

In Hyderabad, the affluent localities such as Banjara Hills are safe. But many of Hyderabad's other localities have criminal activities happening in public places at night.

Hyderabad is a very bad and worst place to settle and live. There are lots of criminals and gangsters that are present in the streets of Hyderabad at night.
Also, the Peaceful Community is present in large numbers in Hyderabad.

Hyderabad used to be a good place to live around 15 years ago. Now, the greenery is depleted and both summers and winters are warm. Before in winters, the nught temperature used to go as low as 6 degrees, but now it rarely dips below 12.

Seems like Pandu Reddy is frustrated with life. Dont get me wrong Hyderabad is all that he said but it is also so much more. Relatively speaking Hyderabad is no worse than any American city excepting the traffic. You have miles better public transportation and much better safety to walk on the streets. If you have a car then like any American city you can go from home to destination without any hassle but you can also actually afford to live inside the city instead of a suburb 20 miles away from downtown.

Job market is fluid and opportunities for those who put in the work is no problem. Water and electricity used to be issues but seems to have been solved in recent years.

Now, Hyderabad is the best in the world at something very dear to me. Food. I have traveled a bit and nothing even comes close to the cuisine in Hyderabad. This alone is worth putting up with all the problems that abound in this city. And the food is cheap, dirt cheap. QoL+++++.

Hyderabad is among the worst places to live in India. Having lived in Hyderabad, I can say that it is very highly polluted and filled with enormous amount of crime.
There is absolutely no greenery in this town. Hyderabad is arid, very dry and a dust bowl. People litter everywhere, even at the shops entrances, road sides, storm water drains, ponds, lakes, absolutely anywhere.
Hyderabad is a good place for criminals and hooligans. Everyday plenty of women in Hyderabad are molested, raped and sexually harassed. Chain-snatching, pickpocketing, burglary, extortion, mugging and mental abusing are very common in Hyderabad. Tuktuk drivers will loot every penny and overcharge the rates.
There is roasting heat in Hyderabad every summer. The temperature in summer exceeds 45 degrees C and you feel as if you're inside an oven.
And just like Bangalore, Hyderabad attracts the worst graduates from across India. Boasting itself as a software hub, you'll hardly find as Computer Science graduates working as Software Engineers! Instead you will find useless Mechanical, Electrical, E&C, Chemical, Civil Engineers working as software engineers in Hyderabad!

These are real facts about India's software industry. It is the worst in the world and Indians never say "No" to anyone. These Indian software companies only care about Billing, Quantity, but not Quality.
Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai and Gurgaon are body-shopping centres of India. Recruit worthless "yes-man" people throughout the country to get cheap billing from clients from Western Countries. Indian tech industry is by far the worst in the world.
