    Pros

    Good benefits. Continuous projects. If you are settled with a client, it would be for many years to come. Flexible environment.

    Cons

    Salary is a big minus. Doesn't care much about the employees. Excuses for everything an employee asks by quoting their policies etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as people, not resources.

    Pros

    like any consulting company this review is specific to the practise (SAP in my case) you are part of.
    General work life balance is good, people get promoted although sometimes based on seniority, some exceptionally good guys are always there and if you can get hands on people from other countries like European ones, you can get exposed to some great work.

    Cons

    Cross country integration is poor
    Training is average, people are not top tier
