4)Direct Client exposure

6)Managers do have technical bent of mind and understand the system.

Cons

1)Screwed up Appraisal process.Appraisal greatly depends on the current project the time of Appraisal where little importance given to previous feedbacks.
2)Client is God over here so a little bad feedback from client can screw up your whole appraisal and promotion.
3)Pay discrimination with laterals.
4)Managers are only technical no leadership skills.
5)No onsite opportunities.Only fake onsite opportunities are promised at the time of leaving.Long term onsites are absent except 2-3 months travel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve your leadership skills.Reach out to developers,sr. developers for their concern,Hold meetings timely to motivate people and put employee satisfaction into action.Create long term Onsite opportunities not just make fake offers at the time of leaving.

    Pros

    Opportunities for professional training and conducting training is pretty good in the firm. The KX is full of excellent materials for leveraging on other engagements. The firm is really good in selling itself in these materials. Large client engagements. opportunities to work with snr execs of Tier 1 companies in all industries. the senior you in the firm the senior the exposure...i'm currently engaging with c-level execs for one of the leading financial services organisation in australia

    Cons

    It's primarily an American company i.e. i've yet to see non-american partners rising to C-level positions within the firm. So I dont have lots of confidence when they say that appointment of C-level positions are in the best of interest of the company. There are some really excellent partners more than capable outside NA that could lead the firm further up....pay is definitely lower than industry average....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay better to keep best people....owise you will lose them...sometimes, i dont understand why some practice leaders are there when they are clearly not making any progress for the practice...
