Pros

- Very friendly and supportive environment here, unusual for corporate.
- Smart colleagues
- Brand name
- No 'long-hours for the sake of it' culture.
- Interesting variety of software development projects in my team. Great opportunities for personal development.
Search 'JBWere' for further reviews, they built this environment (before GS takeover) so may be different from global GS.

Cons

- Contract rates not the best out there.

    Pros

    I did an internship with them and it has been the best internship experience I've had. You have access to all levels of the organization from analysts to managing directors, and they have a very warming and welcoming culture, where they take teams very seriously.

    Cons

    Operations salary is not that high.


  2. A company which demands more from its employee, and expects the employee to take ownership in decisions and tasks

    Pros

    Competitive Environment. Encouraging employees to take ownership for innovations, tasks and decisions. Believes in industrialization and strives to remove human touch points in processes (which would enable zero-error making).

    Cons

    Its culture is confusing and it takes time to adapt to it. At times GS claims to have a flat hierarchy, and at times the management expects that the tasks of Managing directors and Vice Presidents be expedited.

    Advice to Management

    Follow a uniform culture. If you claim the system in GS to be of flat hierarchy, then so it be. the confusion arises when the flat hierarchy is broken.
