Pros

Top management has been good with their attitude towards the employees.
Decent Salary and good benefits.
Got good projects as AST has a good reputation with earlier work force and as an oracle partner

Cons

Incapable mangers assuming high positions as Directors.
The Lower management does not seem to be having any knowledge on understanding how to use resources/consultants.
Many good consultants are made to leave AST because of few incapable managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) Identify incapable managers/Directors (difficult task) and fix them or go through high attrition for the coming years.
2) Business is all about people and when people leave, its not because of the company / job , its because of the few academically well qualified but mentally unwell Managers/Directors who paint the place black when no one is looking around.
