    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, great bonus structure

    Cons

    High stress. Strong Indian management presence and culture. Very slow to pay expenses; many items get disputed. Management tends to be very controlling and will micro-manage you. The quality of customer engagements is questionable. On one engagement to which I was assigned, the Statement of Work was completely open ended leaving the customer free to dispute any delivered product for any reason and putting the boots-on-the-ground into a very difficult position vis-a-vis any change requests.

    Advice to Management

    Back off and let the seasoned employees do their jobs. Demand quality and complete statements of work before and engagement is begun.
