    Pros

    A fair degree of independence and autonomy in terms of daily scheduling and the ability to create your own list of target accounts and prospects.

    Cons

    Very dysfunctional sales pursuit and sales support process and extremely difficult to get corporate support for deals. Sales and marketing are out of sync and there is no support for innovative or consultative deal-making, even though the brass talks the talk. Having SMEs actually show up for meetings with clients, when they have committed to being there, would be an excellent start. Also having marketing for the U.S. based in the U.S. is critical. You can't 'talk' to St. Louis from Bangalore. Well, you can, but......

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to the run the U.S. out of India. It doesn't work, especially in terms of sales and marketing, Especially marketing. Speaking 'Indian English' to U.S. prospects when you are trying to impress upon your U.S. based prospects that you "get it", isn't a great way to make your point.. Also there is NO social media marketing strategy( at least none that we saw) and supposedly that is something we are selling to our clients. How about walking the walk before we purport expertise to our clients. Oh....and get rid of Hemant. What an embarrassment. Maybe CapGemini will take care of that. The place went downhill after you got rid of Phaneesh Murthy. He was awesome. Ashok Vemuri is anything but.

    Pros

    Got great friends and technicians working in this company. Not too large which restricts growth or recognition neither too small of a company

    Cons

    Regional specific priority is been given by few managers which kind of discourages other employees who are the the wrong side of the table.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop taking things personal and act professional.

    Good place to learn new technologies and have a overall professional development experience.. Good work practicies that match the market standards..

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction is limited in terms of new career options for internal postings. Employee cross educational features and programs are none to be seen for candidates with multi-technological aspirations. Management is too focused on delivery point of view instead of ofucssing on root level processes.
