Pros

1. Good company with normal pay as per industry standard
2. Good process oriented company
3. Employee friendly in india but not in US.

Cons

1. Sometimes project decisions cannot be falling on you. Rather manager takes his liberty depending on its billing rate. Meaning.. if there is a project specific to your profile, if your manager has another project which is not that specific but billing rate is better, he may hide this and force you to fall in project which will benefit the company.. even if it is for shorter term.
2. If client requires to work in weekends, sometimes, manager may request at the beginning but forces in due course.

    Pros

    As I said, very aggresive culture...not in the hostile sense, but healthy competetiveness
    They have a young workforce and most of them are happy

    Cons

    Some HR lags in recruitment ...but i guess could be a one off case

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
