    Pros

    Exposure to highly accomplished executives and opportunity to work closely with dynamic, experienced Consultants and teams globally. Understanding of corporate structure and leadres.

    Inadequate compensation, especially for Researchers; there is also a glass ceiling (again within Research) and the promotion process/career advancement could be greatly improved.

    Pros

    8 hour job. You can gain knowledge about different industries.

    You can feel good if you are hired in research. If in DC then no one will hire you. Its a data entry job.

    Pros

    A lot to learn. Supportive team members. Food there is very good and most of all they are always ready to help you out with the issues.

    Cons

    There is no as such challenge regarding the work schedule but the salary is not that much high. Transport facility is not good.

    Advice to Management

    You guys should enhance the salary a bit, its really very low for the entry level designations. And also work a little bit more on the administration part.

    Pros

    Only good if you are joining the research or the technology team that is known as global technology team (GTS) in case of remuneration.

    Cons

    - If you ain't joining any of the above 2, you are in for a ride.
    - Adding to my above point, remuneration is low as well for other teams.
    - Do not expect swift promotions.
    - Employees have low morale.
    - No training and development.

    Advice to Management

    When people trust there seniors, they rise to the occasion. But if they don't, they rise the occasion.
