Pros

Growing and TRYING to be a top tier consultancy rather than a typical Indian dominated culture.

Cons

Still too much of an onshore / offshore labor play. Very frustrating at times having to accommodate work schedules of offshore associates who seems to dictate to the North American associates. Don't trust them to look after your career or family.

Advice to Management

Stick to "Americanitizing" customer facing roles in North America and EU.

    Pros

    1. You get lot of opportunities to learn 2. Promote innovative thinking and is part of the company's DNA 3. You have lot of projects worldwide

    Cons

    1. No proper appraisal method and hence moving up the ladder is very difficult considering the total workforce is more than 125K 2. Your work experience is completely dependent on the project you get. You dont have much choice after you get into a project. If you get a screwed up manager, your life is screwed 3. Monetary compensation is pathetic. The company eats 80% of your billing rate and only gives you 20%

    Advice to Management

    Anything we say is useless

    no good training , freshers are given challenging tasks and asked to work in a different technology than what they are trained

    Advice to Management
