    Pros

    Middle level management is virtually non existing. There is very little scope of getting into management level positions so you end up coding even after 8-9 or 10 years! The quality of work too does not essentially justify 10 years of coding experience and you might soon realize that a 4 yrs experienced can do the same work!!
    Offshore salaries are as per the market standards and Onsite perks are not too good as well. Headstrong by no means is a salary master! Average salary and perks though.
    Leave policy is pretty bad with no sick leaves.
    You will find it very hard to get out if you are stuck in a wrong project!

    Cons

    Good projects in Finance domain and there are ample opportunities to get into a BA role.
    Top level management is very strong and has a clear vision. The management is not at all employee friendly though!
    No variable component so carry home salary is good.
    Very good company to start your carrier with untill 7 years experience or to get into senior management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a bridge for 7-10 years experienced to get into senior management or architect roles.
    Leave policy should be improved.

    Pros

    Good work.
    Nice Salary and perks.
    No lay off.
    If you are on bench no worries.No firing.

    Cons

    Bad Politics.
    No Growth prospect.
    Manager is god.if your manager is not happy with you,you will get released from the project.
    Your voice will not be listen by HR or senior management.
    Onsite is very rare and only in two BU.
    9 hours in office,if you are on bench also,you need to complete 9 hours.
    Bad leave policy.
    Policies also moulded as per manager decisions.
    If you will resign,They will not try to retain you. Instead they will hire from outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to employees also.Manager is not right all the time. Manager is not god.
    HR also follows to managers,its very bad things.
