    Pros

    Nice work life balance. The boss doesn't push you very much and people are mostly friendly.

    Cons

    Great opportunity to start with but didn't end up going well. There's no career path or options for you. They tend to underpay people without much experience. The human resource partners are terribly bad, not supportive or helpful at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value people with great potential and make sure the employees get a chance to develop and utilize their skills.

    Pros

    A lot of learning since you inherit a lot of duties that was not the original included in the first place. You get extra miles points which you can redeem prizes if you are in India

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Web System sucks, suppose to make easy for user but I guess they care less since it is hard to use and complex.
    - Employee first company motto seems to be a myth
    - You get xtra miles which you can not redeem prizes since you are not in India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to compensation and adjust allowance based on location in US realistically. Cost of living increase 25% yet compensation increase is close to 0-1%. This needs to be taken seriously if you want to keep loyalty and talent, else people will be jumping.

    don't see any reason to work here. they pay less, and no working culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to reduce communication gap. give little more freedom to share information which is needed to understand the work even to contrctors, or Dont expect they know every thing about your company process. and create a standard work process. which is well explained by available material/help.
