    Pros

    Good work culture, Visa processing is streamline compare to other Indian based company.

    Cons

    Promotion processing is not transparent, if you get release from project you will be treated like new comer. HR does not have much power. Everything is driven by Manager. Onsite salary very less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As it is a manager driven company so there should be some system by which upper management can noticed it.

    Pros

    The medical and other benefits are great
    Personal growth has a lot of scope
    Promotions happen regularly whether you do exceptional work or not

    Cons

    Most employees belong to a region in India and tend to speak only that regional language
    Company Tenure is given more importance than merit for promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give due credit to the merit in people and you will have an excellent workforce

    Pros

    If you want to stick in US this will be a great company.

    Cons

    Employee care is nil, even if your skill set doesn't match to a domain which you have been recruited or the work and skill set doesn't match. Getting out of horizontals is very difficult. Which in turn will hinder your growth
    You need to have closer relationship with your managers to get your promotions done on time
    Even though the company grows by leaps employees at bottom of the ladder do not have significant growth as the managers does

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please work with the project teams directors to have focus on Employee care. Putting revenue at first regardless of employees satisfaction doesn't look well for mww

    Pros

    This is good company however as the number of employees grow the dynamics change. Immigration policy is great when compare to other Indian IT companies. Compensation is at par with other Indian IT majors. Also I concur with other reviewers.

    Cons

    There are few cons especially Appraisal processes is very bad unless you ask they won't even bother, for example one of my colleague received top rating continuously for four years yet he is not promoted.
    GWFM ( Global Workforce Management ) this group is supposed to place the resources as soon as some one is released from a project rather they are doing postman job also they are not reachable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look into the cons and improve in those areas. If company thinks that GWFM role is to do postman job then they are doing the job perfectly.
