    Pros

    - Great compensation if you join in the US as a local employee
    - Streamlined support processes
    - Generally cordial and friendly employees
    - Good infrastructure in India, with a very nice campus in Bangalore. Overall atmosphere on campus is conducive for work.

    Cons

    - bad salary for employees deputed from India
    - the company had a phase of red tape a few years ago, including simple things like office supplies (hopefully it isn't so anymore)
