    Pros

    we will get a chance to work on multiple products. Especially global services guys have to work on multiple requirements within short span of time, so their learning scope is more.
    Cab facility is awesome.

    Cons

    No corporate professionalism. Employees have to maintain dignity. Local politics has to be erased. :)

    Pros

    Cool environment..
    No formals required.
    Awesome place to learn.
     Some of the staff is very very much supportive.
    Salary is good.

    Cons

    Some people are biased on basis of their personal interactions with some employees.
    Very less job posts so chance of getting permanent it less.
    Selection criteria is bad.. They choose randomly and not on basis of someone's skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Give a fair chance to everyone and then decide what they are worth. You cant judge someone if You've haven't given them any work to do.
    They cant prove themselves unless they are given a chance to prove themselves.

    Pros

    Product based company, will give you a chance to learn a lot, good working environment and company culture

    Cons

    conversion ratio of interns to full time job holders is very low, but if made permanent, paid well.

    Advice to Management

    do not hide the actual vacancies from the interns so that they can plan something for themselves.

    Pros

    Good onsite opportunities
     Flexi timings
    No dress code
    Open door policy
    Exposure to clients directly
    Reasonable apprisals(I.e. not hike and promotion)

    Cons

    Unprofessional, most of the employees don't know what constitutes Unprofessional behavior.
     I think most important knock out factor is unprofessional + mediocre employees . It is this lethal combination, killing remaining hardworking/professional employeesl(putting more burden).
    Divisive politics and groups are rampant with the help of managers.
    Managers try to project everything rosy and any vocal decent is termed as negitivity rather than try to fix it.
    Looks like body shopping rather than premium consulting business
    Work life balance is screwed if you are in wrong project or manager is not your pal
    No way to change your line manager
    Bad hikes and promotions are mere eye wash, just title changes.

    Advice to Management

    Save the hardworking and high skilled individuals from unprofessional, medicore, laid back and devisive politicians, don't be part of them/don't play along with them. Burden kills even the beast. Monetary issues are trivial to resolve due to the onsite opportunities presence.Be practical accept there are pitfalls and try to fix them.

    Pros

    The work was overall challenging. and the people were always great to work with. The work environment was open and clean. I always felt that the compensation I received was fair. Training and professional development was encouraged.

    Cons

    There came to be a point where I realized that there wasn't any further career advancement available to me at this company. I have always been someone who wants to make a positive change when I see processes that are not working optimally, however, the amount of politics and layers of management made making any meaningful change virtually impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Empower and encourage your employees to make positive changes. Develop additional programs to encourage this. Set corporate values to encourage innovation.
