    Pros

    Good work environment, management is good, good work life balance

    Cons

    Slow in understanding the market trends in technology consulting business and leveraging global workforce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay ahead of times in technologies;
    Caring for people focus is really good and this needs to translate to giving respect to the people and their work done and nurture and encourage talent and not treat them like mere resources/use and throw/slaves.
    Management needs to take tough decisions when needed and be more aggressive in looking ahead of curve in technological advances
