    Pros

    You get a lot of exposure. They have good client projects that are large in size and impact. Get to work with a lot of smart people and learn to execute projects on a onsite-offshore model.

    Cons

    The company still struggles to integrate US workers with foreign workers.
    The organization is very political for a professional services company.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on integrating different cultures.
