    I worked at Infosys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, leadership is good mostly but is side tracked with misconceptions and stereotypes and heeding to incorrect or mimicked status reports. Promotions are not good in all units but are fast paced in other areas. Management listens when your growth stops for a long no. of years.

    Cons

    The values were compromised with too much incompetent talent taking managerial positions and living on other's effort. An effective/efficient interviews were not conducted to recruit the laterals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As above, can be discussed and identified with real time examples if given a chance.

    I worked at Infosys full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    * Training program
        - Infosys will take "freshers" and put them through an extensive training program that will build their skills.
        - These training programs are tailored to both technical and non-technical students, each moving at their own pace and speed.
        - Upon completion, each member of the team is expected to contribute and usually has support of a larger team.
        - The more senior team members work to help the new members get caught up to speed. They're patient (most of the time) and willing to help.
    * Variety of projects
        - Depending on your skill set, you can work in a variety of projects in varying roles.
        - Gives you a breadth of knowledge
        - Exposure to Fortune 500 companies
        - Work deep in the hearts of some very high profile companies
    * Learn from some of the best
        - There are some truly brilliant people and much you can learn from them (if they have the bandwidth)

    Cons

    * Upper Management is out of touch with the employees 2 or 3 levels below them
        - Time is spent keeping their managers happy, rather than working to improve employee satisfaction
        - Performance appraisal process is almost arbitrary and does not effectively measure the growth or progress of an employee.
        - Hindered by "Apples to Oranges" comparison of onshore and offshore peer-groups
    * Individual growth is hindered by processes
        - Often-times promotions will be passed over because of process and policies that are dated and not applicable to a global delivery model.
    * Genuine feeling that no one beyond your reporting manager cares about your personal or career growth
    * Project level managers are limited in their ability to effect even minor change. They are too bogged down in policies and procedures to be anything other than a sounding board
    * Often-times the strategy for issue resolution is reactive and not proactive. Wait until an employee is ready to quit, has escalated, or a mistake has been made.
    * The work can vary from engaging, tedious, and overwhelming. Expect to pull long hours (especially in production support positions) as there is plenty of work and daily calls with offshore resources.
    * Don't expect any level of responsiveness from HR unless they need something from you, not you from them.
    * Growth will be directed towards "what you are good at", not what you might be interested in (even after multiple requests)
    * Pay is barely competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to "freshers", not management. Come here to start your career. Learn from some truly gifted people. Get exposure to different technologies and different organizations. Go easy on your project managers, they're limited in what they can do and what they can say. When you get bored and you're requests for interesting work, promotions, or a change in scenery fall on deaf ears, update your resume with the fantastic experience you've earned and look for something else that will put your growth first. Till then, make the most of what Infosys has to offer, because it's up to you to grow your career.

    Bad Company - Infosys Public Services misleading not an american based company

    Former Employee - Senior Principal in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Senior Principal in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Infosys full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is no good reason to work for Infosys Public Services. It was represented as an North American company business model , which it is not . it is a shell for Infosys and Bangelore. It is a "Indian Boys Club" and women have little respect . The quality of work is best described as was stated to me" we don"t care how it is done we are just doing it to get paid ".

    Cons

    All travel except air is put on the employee credit card, if you don't use personal credit they tell you to get one or your job is in question. They are slow to reimburse , and take challenge with everyone's expenses. Expenses are reviewed bu someone in India. This is only true for US American employees as the Indian employees are treated differently. The projects are staffed by Indian resources who do not have US Industry experience that are brought to US for the work and they play an interesting visa game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop mis-representing this company during the hiring process , be honest and let potential employees make an honest evaluation . If you want to do business in the US then become American citizens and pay taxes, etc. instead with the visa game they play , that is all avoided
