    Pros

    1. Some of the best clients to work with. 2.Lots of learning if you get into good project.I personally got ample opportunity to work on diverse tech. 3. Onsite opportunity if you show tht u are technically good. 4. Facility of learning while working. Has collaboration with some MBA schools. 5. Lot of events keep on happening but if you get time out of your work(which never is the case ) one can participate.

    Cons

    1. No work life balance. 2. Guys sitting on onshore are the ones who are running everything. 3. Use of inhouse languages.

    Pros

    Very strong in Financial domain projects. Good place to work if you were in finance domain projects. I worked at client location IBM ISL, has better learning experience as fresher.

    Cons

    After acquired by Genpact, I heard Headstrong is not at all a good place to work. Supply chain projects doesn't have any good learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Genpact's BPO model cannot be continued in Software services model.

    Pros

    1. time flexibility 2. Work from Home and there is nothing else that I can find out good

    Cons

    With the DNA being overpowered by Genpact, Headstrong is losing focus ,,, the managers are just trying to save the billing of the resources and get their appraisal shoot up. They do not have their say , if the client has asserted anything , be it wrong or right .They must bow to their clients ., Compensation given is below the market standards and when the resource leaves then they arrange for the new resource with more CTC than the one who left .. Why cant you just pay your current employee.. Another trap , when you give your resignation , you will be given a lucrative offer of sending onsite only if you revoke the resignation . THIS IS A BIG TRAP, never fall into it ,, because if=n the greed of onsite you will revoke your resignation and then you 1. have already screened the pay package that you were offeredand secondly 2. you will not be given hike in the currentpay package here because you are being offered onsite NICE TRICK INDEED !!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    One simple advice to the management ,,,, VALUE..... YOUR...... RESOURCES....... , they are the ones who are delivering day and night to get you business and they are the ones who are not valued till the give resignation.
