    They have lot of onsite openings and the performance are recognized. Growth wise it competitive, salaries are based on your position.

    The onsite offshore coordination is not great, any you can get the support from leaders.

    The organization process is not followed in all the levels, the working hours and billing in onsite is completely different from others

    Pros

    Good place to learn as a fresher...Not a company for a long term...Onsite opportunity is possible if you work really hard...

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    They will hear in one ear and they will leave that in another ear so no advice to management...
