    I have been working at Aricent

    Pros

    good benefits. timely appraisal and performance review. if you have base location in india, you will get india trip every 2 years. Salary very good if comapred with other indian companies like TCS , infy etc

    Cons

    No green card processing. onsite employees just treated as a resource.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the employess at the client location. They bring more $$$ and work to bring better client interaction.
