    Pros

    salary and benefit package is better than other india based outsourcing companies. But that's where story stops.

    Pros

    You get to work with different clients all across the globe on various projects.

    Cons

    Being part of consulting group you are working on remote locations; your supervisor and team doesn't always understand what you are doing or have accomplished. Thus at the end it all becomes a visibility game for appraisals and promotions. The processes are not yet mature enough to account for all of this and ultimately fails the employees. I never received any kind of support or commitment on my projects from leadership. I had much more camaraderie with delivery team than with consulting team. Last but not the least they will advertise that you would be doing consulting which is something you will rarely do.

    Advice to Management

    Build mature processes for appraisals and communicate goals clearly at each level. Make an effort to make everybody feel part of the team.
