    I worked at Covansys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talented people, it's a great place to work. People were very aggressive in their work. They were very helpful too. I's offered adequate training for this role.

    Cons

    Need to have more work life balance. I's putting 14-15 hrs a day for continuously 6 months. I's very tired after 3 months and looking for break.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create more opportunities for junior management people. Team must have women power as well. It's all male centric when I was working

    Pros

    Good PTO / Time-off Large number of clients

    Cons

    Human Resources ( esp. communication) Poor Account management Poor employee Compensation & Benefits especially base salary Chaotic transition from one client to next - I mean being in consulting business they lack being proactive in identifying next assignment for their resources once the current assignment nears end

    Better focus on accounts and clients Improve/Revamp employee Compensation & Benefits

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Covansys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good at processing H1-B visas and green card applications, given their rich experience. Good for young professionals just starting their career.

    Cons

    For a bit senior professionals, there is no career path to advance. Even with a newly minted MBA, they would still want you to do the same job, without a slight chance of advancing to a higher level. They tended to do a lot of "staff augmentation" projects, meaning, just sending people to work for big companies as contractors. In the consulting sector, this is nicknamed "body-shopping". Management is quite Indian style, with refined skills in withholding information and misleading their subordinates. The executive team was not effective in forming and executing strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Be real and be honest with employees.
