    Pros

    * Overall good systems put in place in terms of Support Functions, Trainings
    * STEP and SCALE initiates are good systems, however the actual use is very minimal

    Cons

    * No Direct Connect with Leadership Team, despite insights, Letters, But no hearing or fair play
    * STEP and SCALE are in Theory, Practically Have seen it fail in several in Engagements, Instead of Performance, Preference rules :(
    * HR Leaders - As expected evaluate performance based on 1 feedback of 365 days with dotted line manager
    * Be careful about actual JD and the one put into Hard Copy, 99% chances are that it will vary.
    * Babu culture ( Keep your Manager Happy and you will get the best , Always please Manager instead of working Actual Facts Figure Finance details, Risk Ignorance, etc. )

    Advice to Management

    * Please make STEP more meaningful, provide feedback in Quarters instead of all of sudden Appraisals without discussions and release of ratings.
    * Please use 360 degrees rating system and publish to Syntelligence ( Intranet ) including Managers, Leaders.
    * Give Mid-Senior Management the confidence of Trust, Integrity and Reward N Recognition culture for the ones who highlights RISKS, Bring New Customers
    * Please Hire with exact Roles Responsibilities Designation Band Grade, Don't deviate once resource (s ) join and put them under Practice instead of Delivery ( specialized domain area )
    * BU Heads Client Partners and Delivery Directors should all treat employees equally irrespective of Cast Creed Religion or Color. There is strong feeling amongst many Senior Level Managers on this.
    * Please don't foster culture of favorism, Reward and Appraise on Performance, Feedback, Values instead of Personal Conflicts coming between BU Head and Sr Managers
