    Used to be a good company to work for

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsThey offer flexibility on working schedule which is nice for someone with family obligations. They allow employees to work remotely occasionally.

    ConsIt used to be a good company to work for, a lot of support from the management on how an employee can improve in his work, but slowly, management is being replaced by people from another unit, and consequently changed the culture. There's no more room for career growth, especially now that a lot of layoffs is happening within the company because of the outsourcing to India. As a result, a lot of people leaving looking for a better opportunities outside.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A Very good place to work with good work life balance

    Lead Analyst (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsGood work life balance
    Work from home option
    get to learn a lot of new things
    a very friendly and interactive environment

    Consthe only con I can think of is the take home salary, which is less compared to other companies. But they have other benefits like share purchase plan.
    You might get held up in the same project for a long long time
