    Pros

    Not much. Some of the clients that I worked for were great like Pepsi, eBay and PayPal

    Cons

    Poor work culture, no work life balance. No hikes or salary raises unless you count a $50 increase per month as one. They rely mostly on new outsourced immigrants to drive the base pay as low as possible so there is a lot of attrition. Managers rarely are of a good caliber and are allotted a quota for number of people they can pick as good performers and usually pick their most favorite employee to give a good "bucket". This will happen inspire of the client giving you a great feedback. CTS has 4 (EA, EM, MA, MM) Exceeded All/Most, Meets All/Most, with most people shoved in to the Exceeded Most (aka 2nd bucket) Your salary will not even keep up with inflation so staying there for > 1 year is absurd! Executive are corporate $#!t that only care about filling they fat wallets. There was a year when execs emailed all the staff that there would be very minimal bonus due to a relatively poor year and the COE (Frank) got an 80% increase in his salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like cattle. Stop lying on visas and hire good talent and not some lame outsourced "engineer" who can't even write code. I am not against immigration for the talented, but most of your employees are picked up in bulk only because they are cheap, not because they are outstanding.
