    Pros

    Very Good History.
    Commendable Belief in getting things done.
    Very good working environment.

    Cons

    Careless investment and lack on long vision.
    Good talent of the employee goes waste if he is not stylish and do not know how to hangout with Senior Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First most advice is to review your HR policy. Remember, when you (specially C&W) make one satisfied Employee, you make 10 unsatisfied employees. I have seen for five years that Management is crying for attrition, but Senior Management has not done anything solid to stop that.

    Secondly, I have seen in Change of Management in UK in 2005 (when they took Energis) and CW grew up, And again 2010-11, change in both India and UK Management, when the graph went down.

    Just think about it. Something is missing somewhere !!!!!!
