    I have been working at Headstrong full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brand with name in markets. Annual HR activities. Sports support. Cab facilities. Only good for freshers and senior management.

    Cons

    Low increments. HR concerned for senior management than employees. No new projects. Happy with what old ones. No appreciation for work by managers. If you are not aligned to client projects search new job ASAP instead of wasting time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think for your team growth also, not only your personal.

    I have been working at Headstrong full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - personal growth, as you get more empowerment :), but you should be at the right place at the right time for that.
    - time flexibility
    - work with big IBank clients
    - work on finance domain, large scale applications
    - exposure to working in a distributed team (in multiple geographical locations)

    Cons

    - salary hike is poor
    - that also means people getting hired are of avg quality, so you won't get too many knowledgeable people around to learn from
    - most of the projects are client managed, so you end up being individual contributor or leading a small team, and then you lose in the appraisal because of that
    - too much fun/HR activities, may be it's a plus point for some

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - to retain good talent, you should pay them enough
    - simultaneously focus should be on hiring a well balanced pool of talent, even though you might have to pay a bit more
