    Pros

    If you are lucky as me to be assigned to a good project, with managers who give credit for your performance, life is good. The more you prove yourself, the better appraisals and opportunities. Work from home option is available depending on the project, which as you would expect is either a boon or bane.

    Cons

    Too many tools for proving career and professional growth. This gets tedious along with your project responsibilities and eats into your free time. Too many mandatory actions, trainings which don't serve much purpose. Salary increase is less and does not depend much on how well you perform, but on how much the company made profit. If you are deputed in US, no green card applications, 3 month notice period (ridiculous!) or pay $10,000, and not a single dollar increase in pay (they increase your hypothetical indian salary by peanuts).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop exploiting employees for profit at the cost of their well being. Simplify processes and reduce number of tools to submit career related stuff - streamline it to just one application.

    Salaries and promotions.Getting into right project is another challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some increments or bonuses to onshore employees.IBM india has to bag many projects rather than concentrating on body shopping.
