    Pros

    Salary was great along with the benefits and group activities

    Cons

    The long hours and overtime required did not justify and outweigh the benefits for me. It hindered my lifestyle and working with the existing employees was sometimes difficult and challenging because of the lack of cooperation. Because of the large cooperation, it will take you a long time to adapt and have any input. The technologies used in the workplace are very convoluted

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees

    1. Well defined hierarchy

    3. Onsite a bit early in professional domain (but they are not really worth)

    Cons

    1. Work on Amdocs platform with not so good technical expertise.
    2. Screw up work life balance , projects like : Vodafone India (no onsites), USCC and NET Brazil kills a lot of people
    3. Some products are not stabilized (OMS) and people are expected to be 24*7 working.
    4. Not a good pay master, pays less than Infosys, Cognizant for experienced candidates
    5. Very low re-location, don't join incase your looking for long term opportunities quickly
    6. If you want to be a hardcore techie or learn a lot in software industry, please don't join it

    Advice to Management

    Please follow companies review on Glassdoor .

    Also, please publish retention rate of the company :P

    Pros

    Excellent initial work environment, gave in to the Indian professional culture in favor of extended working hours that Indians did not mind, excellent induction training and hand holding

    Cons

    Parochial Management, rebuked me for recommending to start operations in India in 1999, and then jumped into India with full band wagon, Abundance of personality clashes, Closed to innovation and ideas ... sticking to COBOL for years

    Advice to Management

    Just identify in a professional manner who your well wisher is and do not undermine him or her
