    Pros

    1. Good number of projects in US with options to switch between. 2. Employee health benefits & stock options. 3. Lot of technical training available, so you can equip yourself for any technology shifts. And support from experts across organization. 4. Immigration processes taken care of.

    Cons

    1. Pay package is on the lower end.

    Advice to Management

    Pay scale should be revisited for the technical consultants. And that would really take care of the issues. Otherwise this is one the finest organizations i have worked for.
