    Pros

    Hands down the people, excellent team who work very hard are supportive of each other, company treats people very fairly professionally and personally, it cares.

    Cons

    To have more opportunities for training.

    Advice to Management

    There is no such thing as too much communication, this area is improving and I'm very glad to experience that.

    Pros

    - BND has a great reputation with Microsoft, so you'll have the opportunity for some very good exposure.
    - Work with talented people
    - Work flexibility

    Cons

    - Upper management is -extremely- shady. They overbill clients, force you onto projects they know are death marches for profitability.
    - Extremely poor project management business unit (extremely inexperienced PMO in Scottsdale).
    - Performance evaluations are pretty non existent.
    - Lots of politics in the office
    - Almost all Senior Consultants are forced to take on additional roles in the name of "personal growth" and "management positions", truth be told the promotions are granted politically, and forcing additional roles are simply setting you up for failure.
    - Untechnical managers in manager roles
    - Encouraged to cheat on certifications.

    Advice to Management

    You hire extremely talented people, why not treat them so they'll enjoy working for you?

    Pros

    The dedication of the employee base at B&D is admirable and there are pockets of industry-credible capabilities.

    Cons

    Poor strategic guidance and collaborative planning amongst a multitude of separately-run practices (both in the US and abroad). Doing too many things sub-optimally and not enough time spent on the better-performing areas.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the "con" above.

    - Roles that give you the opportunity to experience and work on many things that you would normally never get in most organizations.
    - Top clients
    - Great team work and learning from very bright professionals, top industry SMEs etc. globally
    - Above average salary, bonus, employee benefits etc. Always got good increment and quarterly bonus even during downturn.
    - Supportive & strong India leadership.

    Cons

    - Company is well established having been founded in 1992 and setup India operations in 2004 but is not that known brand as the big consulting and tech companies.
    - Currently two locations in India i.e. Gurgaon (Delhi NCR) and Bangalore. If you are in these metro locations then its fine unless you are looking for other locations such as Hyderabad, Mumbai etc.

    Advice to Management

    - Grow the business faster and focus on opportunities in APAC region as well.
    - Global CEO should be more involved in India operations.

    Pros

    • Good pay structures & employee benefits.
    • Business & Decision always thoroughly studied the Income Tax rules and benefits and tried to pass on the maximum tax benefits to employees with in the Income Tax limits.
    • Good team of professionals.
    • Rewards
    • More options for employees to work directly with clients and interact with them.
    • Good travel benefits and options, when there is a demand from clients.

    Cons

    Nothing as such as an employee. But could have been grown to a bigger size, if B&D could tap the local business opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Should advertise more to make B&D a known company in India . It should capitalize the global leader status to do more services in India, currently less known in India, may be because no local business interest in India.
