    Pros

    Good clients, nice job, nice pay

    Cons

    Worst immigration team and please do not join if you are looking for green card. The immigration team most of the time doesn't even have a clue on what they are doing. I am victim of their stupidity. No one in that team take ownership to correct issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give some focus on the support team as employees outside India working at the client sites hardly get any support from them. Please stop off shoring all the support systems.
