Pros

Salary may seem little better compared to similar IT consulting firms like TCS, Wipro and Infy but similarity stops there as medical benefits, 401 K and ESOPs are NONE. Medical coverage starts when you have spent $5000 from your pocket.

Cons

- No Employee stock option
- Little or no salary raise
- No career growth
- Medical benefits worst in the industry
- No contribution to your 401 K
- High attrition rate at offshore

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can never be a Billion dollar company by low employee morale. Learn the concept of profit sharing with employees from Infy.

    Pros

    A good launch pad for freshmen to learn the craft- they make you do the work of 10 people and you learn a lot in the first two years.Then you make the new freshman in team do the work of 10 men.Its a pure body shopping service.

    Cons

    Very low and disparate salaries :
    Employees on US deputation:
    L1 visa get an allowance of 2300 $ per mnth - imagine living on 2300 $ with family in California
    H1 visa gets 3200 $
    US employees :50 K to 85 K PA for techies
    No Green Card processing
    Employee Insurance provided is far below industry stndrds

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.Respect your employees, pay them enough money to lead a good life.
    2.Stop exploiting freshmen
    3.Implement good Project Management practices
    4.be honest with your clients

    Doesn't Recommend
