    Pros

    World class testing engagements which gives you exposure on Offshore/Onsite models.
    Infrastructure with respect to learning is good.
    Onsite opportunities are more - Only thing which actually makes you stay back at CTS.
    Performance measurement system is good.
    Performing quite well compared to other companies.
    Secure, very less firing of employees.

    Cons

    Micro-management in each and every aspects.
    Strategies to reach market targets and to be at TOP among IT service providers look impressive but affecting employee's career.
    Frequent movement of resources from one domain project to another which makes you jack of all but master of none.
    You will end up in reporting, reporting, reporting......reporting, than actual development of project or test execution. You might even forget the technologies/tools which you knew.
    All your ideas will be driven by one main thing - whether client is ready to pay or not. Otherwise it's gonna be a waste of time thinking.
    If you have joined CTS from a product based company, you might find blame game quiet frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deploy people into projects based on their areas of expertise. Cricket player, who is good at batting, bowling and fielding may not perform well in boxing.
