Most of them turned up for work on the Hyderabad campus, but were clearly at a loss for words. For one, the security was further tightened, with police force joining the private security guards.
"We are in a maze. We still do not believe that our company is in such a mess,'' said an employee. But, owing to individual deadlines and projects, it's business as usual for them.
A few employees that Business Standard spoke with to get a sense of all that's going on inside the closed doors said some of them were discussing the contents of Ramalinga Raju's letter to Sebi and stock exchanges, others have taken solace in the top management not resigning during the troubled times.
According to an associate, the employees are also dissecting the recent happenings. In the process, some are getting stirred up with the developments. They hope for a miracle to cure all the maladies when the top management briefs the media in the evening.
Satyam staffer said only 30 per cent to 40 per cent occupancy was recorded at Satyam campuses in Pune. According to staffer, the attendance levels suddenly fell on Thursday as the employees were not in a frame of mind to work. Satyam has premises at prominent city locations -- Hinjewadi, Koregaon Park, Wakdewadi and Dhole Patil Road.
Satyam's employees, however, say that it is work as usual and it is a normal work day for them. "The entire incident was shocking but we are not scared of losing our jobs. It is an issue for the management to sort out," said an employee.
"There are three shifts here and we have not been affected in any way," echoed another employee.
