    Pros

    Not much, older culture on the Global Business Side and people were extremely reserved. No one to really train, or help you.

    Cons

    Poor training
    Smile and dial
    Most of the firms they asked you to follow up with were poorly selected

    Advice to Management

    Better training, data mining.

    Pros

    None, I can't think of one positive thing to say about this company!

    Cons

    If you are looking to work for a disorganized company you found it!

    Advice to Management

    Replace ALL current management and create a business plan (and stick with it) for the markets sold into.

    Pros

    Good location in DC near 2 metro stops
    Free gym in the building

    Cons

    Extremely underpaid compared to other companies
    Under average benefits compared to other companies
    Misleading growth opportunities
    Low employee morale and high turnovers
    An environment of "burn-outs" due to high workloads, lack of appropriate prioritization, internal politics, and lack of employee engagement/motivation
    Leaders are not authentic, they don't engender trust
    Poor leadership behavior is never acted upon
    Totally inefficient internal processes & outdated systems
    HR sides management

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more money and offer better benefits
    Hire competent managers
    Buy Herman Miller chairs
    Keep promises you make
    Value your employees better, take care of them better (not just upper management) and see what happens

  8. employees with a range of work ethics making sweat shop wages regardless.

    Pros

    easy to get time off
    flexible work hours
    downtown DC
    Gym in the building
    coffee maker (although the coffee tastes awful)

    Cons

    compensation
    HR department sides with Management
    Managers who are in their position due to friends and family
    biases that carry over between departments regardless of ones work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Try and retain your top talent by paying them a competitive wage and get rid of some of the people who are barely competent enough to correctly complete their day to day responsibilities. This would help morale and show others that you respect and admire hard-work.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, specially my team.
    Transport facility is there

    Cons

    MNC captive cramped in small place, limited learning opportunities, work on ancient technologies,
    Expects to change everything in short time without any support from management

    Advice to Management

    No use, nothing is going to change as it requires effort on both side UK and India

    Pros

    Location, transport, teams and individuals, few really good managers and sr managers

    Cons

    Firefighting and BAU work all the time, no planning or organizing, change control is missing everywhere - requirements can come during UAT or even pre-production, working on weekends is norm rather than exception
    Poor infrastructure and driven by UK based management
    Local management lacks supporting the teams here and confronting their UK counterparts

    Advice to Management

    Provide work-life balance, enhance company infrastructure and look beyond today's deliverable

    Think of people as humans rather than machines running 24 X 7
