    Pros

    Great in depth insight into the industry while getting to meet and networking with lots of people from different areas.

    Cons

    Only got to get a deeper understanding of one business area rather than multiple as in the scope programme they offer.

    Advice to Management

    The programme is very good as it stands, but it's not for everyone, only for those that already have a good understanding of what the firm does and where they'd fit in.

    Pros

    In general good environment for high performers.

    Cons

    Sometimes in few projects managers can be a pain. But this can happen anywhere.
    May or may not get bonus
    Pay hikes are not that great after promotions etc. You get some unconvincing reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Give better pay to your current employees who are high performer without they trying to push for it. Unfortunately the way it works now is the new joiners get paid well than those who are already there.

  3. A good company to work for but pay tends to be in the lower quartile

    Pros

    Good offices, good teamwork, global reach, varied work. Some very talented managers and staff, it is an interesting place to work. Has a flexible approach to working.

    Cons

    Constant threat of moving to mid-cost and low-cost locations so some job insecurity. Can be somewhat overly bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more to middle and senior management. Look behind the metrics and don't be so metric driven. Off-shoring isn't always the best approach

    Pros

    Having the title on your CV that's all

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. Never ending work pressure throughout the year. Too much office politics and bum licking managers. No bonus. Technology guys are seen as slaves to business and they act as Gods.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to keep Talend (not just indians who come from super poor families and have to suffer for visa and europe)
