    I have been working at Headstrong full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - friendly manager
    - opportunities are given to prove your self
    - Manager helps you to achieve your aspirations
    - colleagues are very friendly and help you gain both domain and technical knowledge
    - lots of technical and domain trainings are conducted to gain knowledge
    - flexible timings (you can come and go at any time, but atleast stay in office for 4 hrs) but no Work from Home

    Cons

    - leaves are very less
    - no work from home
    - breakout area is very small
    - lots of process work which actually consumes the time to work on domain or technical part
    - lots of meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please include the relevant team members into the meeting rather then including the whole team into the meeting. Lower level employees do not understand much importance all the meetings conducted.

    I have been working at Headstrong full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I joined Headstrong as a fresher and worked around 3.5 years in this company. Everyone has some sweet and sour experience with his employer and thats why too have. But being true to myself I can say its a good learning I found here in headstrong. Since I was basically engaged in the financial account, here are some pros and cons of the company --

    1. One can get a extensive exposure to financial domain.
    2. Good training sessions to groom technical, functional and behavioural skill.
    3. Exposure to processes being follow in service based IT company.
    4. Many teams and cultural event makes the environment fresh and light.
    5. Onsite Opportunity (If you are lucky enough... ).

    Cons

    1. Resource management is very bad, you will have to fight to keep your profile.
    2. "Headstrong is not Paymaster", so if you want to join it for higher salary think again about it.
    3. Appraisal is very less (especially after being acquired by Genpact ).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard on the resource management.
