    Pros

    1. Good work life balance
    2. Migrates to latest version of products faster than other companies.
    3. You can learn if you are in right project. If you are in the wrong one you future is doomed.
    4. Like all other companies here every thing depends on your manager
    5. You can even get double promotion if your manager wishes it.
    6. Justification for denial of promotion could sound childish like you had once for gotten to update your effort in TFS.
    7. But if you can impress by work or otherwise nothing matters.
    8. Very good ambiance to work in.
    9. Lunch is good and free.
    10. Employees recruited like 1 year back are mostly good technically.
    11. You get an AMEX card as soon as you join. You do not have to depend on your personal card or Forex card solely for foreign trips and expenditure.
    12. Company sponsored parties are great.
    13. No one stops you from taking leaves for long duration as long as its reasonable.

    Cons

    1. First and foremost no cabs, they think everyone owns four-wheeler.
    2. Recently its has become mandatory to spend 42.5 hours every week.Else you and your supervisor may get a mail but so leave deduction etc.
    3. Not much scope of changing projects
    4. Appraisal process is adhoc. Lot of effort has been done by HR to introduce a systematic appraisal process but at the end of the day its still ends up being adhoc and employees voices are not much heard (but you still have a say, may be very little but you have a say)
    5. There has been a degradation of resource pool. Recently quite a lot of people had to be recruited so interview quality was downgraded.
    6. Onsite opportunities has all but dried up.
    7. You may end up having an US manager who has lesser work ex than you.
    8. Salary, Position and experience not explicitly linked.If you think you need more just ask for it during interview show a few offer-letters and you may just get it . But you may end up wasting your technical experience if you not end up in a proper project
    9. People are quitting the company for the above reasons.
    10. People recruited can end up getting better designation or salary even if you recruit them by taking interview and they are lesser work ex.
    11. Hindi is the language of communication in most cases, so much so that some times people start speaking Hindi in meetings .
    12. Very bad company for freahers.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop wasting talented people and making them do menial work. Then when these resources loose their edge you would not have to look for resources to supplement them.

    Try to me more responsive to all employee's need.

    Stop talking about gallup, just for the sake of talking about it. If you wish to use it, use it judiciously.
