    Pros

    The atmosphere can be relaxed. You are trading salary for flexibility, in some cases.

    Cons

    The environment can be retrograde, with lip service given to things like remote work friendliness. Salaries are low. There are a lot of egos and, oddly, a lot of paranoia.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people market value and you will retain them. Fall a little out of love with outsourcing.
