    Pros

    Benefits are really good and employees are well taken care of through competitive benefits and excellent pension plan

    Cons

    Financially run company that makes decisions on numbers that do not align with operational objectives. Very risk adverse, behind competition in products/capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is not just providing vision and direction, but having expertise in areas that you lead and, if you don't do to career growth assignments, respecting expertise in your team and providing resources/ support to achieve the objectives

    Pros

    I think one gets a very good exposure to sales and marketing in India. The management is very friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    No con in particular. Expect things to be a bit bureaucratic. Other than that I dont see any con.
