The pay can be decent, but that's the only way they get people to work here. People around you are good, but there's a Bi-Polar personality at the top. People in the U.S. never stay (and I mean never) since the CEO is a bully and verbally attacks everyone behind their backs. The company has great potential, but as long as it's run by a dictator who will not empower his people, than the past will keep repeating itself.
CEO lies about the company size (they state 700+ employees when it's closer to 300). He will not release financial sales data, even to the people working for him, which leads you to believe he's lying to investors about company sales. His behaviour is erratic, and he goes quiet for weeks at a time. You do not want him interfacing with clients, as he can be a deal killer (and has been). Unless he has an epiphany or intervention, nothing will change, no matter how many new people he hires to replace the ones he runs off.
Advice to Management
Replace the CEO. He blames past performance on the people he hires, but he's the only common element in the history of the company.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Manthan Software Systems (Boston, MA) in June 2009.
Very, very long and detailed process. The US branch of their retail practice is second-guessed by HQ on every decision. They have many levels of management, with some very good people in North America who know retail, but India over rules them virtually every time. The US team kept appointments and made calls as promised, but people calling from India were often late or last minute cancellations. It felt like there was a disconnect between the US team and the India team.
- US team was professional and asked questions one would expect, mostly around success stories or how I thought BI needed to be positioned. The India team pushed every conversation to technical skills, though the position was not a technical one. Answer Question
