Pros

Growth prospects of company are good - if one is lucky to join the right group chances of moving to senior roles can be descent (promoted once in 2 years).

Cons

Not a level playing field - seasoned employees won't share knowledge and information is very poorly documented for the benefit of new comers. Company's forced rating mechanism ensures poor co-operation amongst team members as each tries to ensure his or her position within the company. Very high employee attrition rate, and very frequent re-orgs (at least twice a year) that lead to inefficiency and churn. Quality of data is very poor and no two sources ever match. Performance measurement is very subjective and growth in the company depends on how politically connected one is within the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better and control attrition rate (not just voluntary) - this has not only led to inefficiency but also a very visible lack of quality control within the organization. You treat your employees just like the customers, and neither are happy

    Pros

    Not enough pressure
    Freedom to do things the way you want
    Decent compensation
    Good fringe benefits

    Cons

    Technology is 10-years old. Management has realized that, but isn't making any progress. Management can't even do a reorg in a proper way leading to more waste of time and people. In short, not a good place to work and not challenging enough for high-caliber talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please execute on your promises.
