    Pros

    Fantastic people, Good consulting and services company, Diversified portfolio, Truly global outlook, Good opportunities (especially in Bangalore)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on growing beyond Bangalore. The company is too Bangalore centric at this time.

    Pros

    There is not much work pressure. One can maintain a very good work life balance. The overall work environment is pretty good.

    Quality of work. Not challenging enough. After some point there will be nothing new to learn. In some of the projects getting roll off is pretty difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Higher level management is doing good as the numbers shows. Work environment is too formal which they can think of making it more like start ups kind of environment.

    Pros

    Good compensation, values work-life balance

    Cons

    Performance review system is very flawed and promotes favoritism. Middle management is very poor, which is bringing down employee satisfaction drastically.

    Advice to Management

    Judge mid-level managers on their ability to manage teams in all aspects, not just its outcome.
