    Pros

    Work life balance (in DSAS at least), flexi timings, reasonably good work culture

    Cons

    Frequent shifts in organization structures leads to uncertaint; hierarchal structure which makes transparency; decision making and action difficult, Deteriorating attutudes towards employees, flimsy HR practices (division level), poor mangement (division level)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce hierarchies, if you must cut employee benefits, do it with velvet gloves, get above regionalism/parochial mind set (division level)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of relationships with other large companies
    Chance to work on large engagements, interesting projects

    Potentially a good career move, chance to advance

    Cons

    Work/life balance not good
    Employees with speciallized skills treated as commodities
    High attrition
    Morale issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in current employees. It's cheaper to keep a good employee than to replace that employee with comprable skills.
