    Pros

    Innovative, Creative, Bleeding edge, employee appreciatation cookies, good benefits, on-site gym, very smart people willing to take sensible risks, willing to provide the proper training/education.

    Cons

    Every three to five years they have massive lay-offs, 10%+ of the work force. Poor communication from the top manage down to the worker bees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to communicate the business strategy to everyone in the organization. You would get many answers to the question "What is the direction of the company?" The direction of the company seems to change every quarter.

    Pros

    -Fast Paced
    -Decent Salary
    -Good Low level & director level Managers

    Cons

    -Employee benefit is of least importance.
    -HR is non-existent & thus company driven by managers.
    -No Promotions , Bonus or Salary hikes. Last 5 years 5% (average) hike given to high performers.
    -India gets all the poor quality work which all the other centers have refused to accept.
    -Leaders only make promises but rarely fulfill them.
    -Too many changes in Upper Management, hence no stability.
    -Too many VPs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Listen to employee opinion and act on it.
    -Upper Management should understand the local cultures rather than enforce US mentality on all centers .
