    Varied

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsBest in class IT captive
    Work in a multi cultural environment
    Extensive repository of banking domain knowledge bank

    ConsTypical Indian work culture - Hypo critic and high nepotism
    Failure of top level management to focus on high end work resulted in more of body shopping and low end SDLC work as the focus was more on increasing head count and increase their little fiefdoms
    Frequent 'strategy' changes
    Plateau'd career for people with 15+ years of workex

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is for the expat/on-shore management - Please get rid of the flab / top-heavy structure especially delivery heads and above who are rusted and have been with GLT for more than 5 years. This is the only way to bring in a fresh perspective and have a fresh lease of life

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
