    I have been working at Infosys

    Pros

    1) Has a great reputation as a global leader in off shoring.
    2) You gain skills and knowledge in areas you are not exposed to at other organizations including but not limited to managing offshore team, kmmi and cmmi compliance, knowledge management, cultural sensitivity, etc.
    3) All employees are nice and satisfied with their job. No one leaves due to problems with the company.
    4) Internal certifications. Shows your path to promotion, keeps you abreast in technology and processes.
    5) Young atmosphere. Lots of highly trained and qualified young professionals work for infosys, not your old-school conservative workplace with 50-somethings roaming around, they are appropriately placed behind the scenes dealing with the higher stakes issues such as engagement management, lead generation, client relations, etc.

    Cons

    1) Large male to female and Indian to all-other-background imbalance. You must realize that you are working for an Indian company wherever you may be and work functions will be influenced accordingly.
    2) Slow to promote employees.
    3) No 401-k matching or tuition reimbursement program (in America).
    4) Internal certifications. Although they are a plus while in the company, they have little meaning outside the company and wished external-industry certifications could be substituted.
    5) Most correspondences have two messages. One for the Indian employees and the other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (from an American point of view) If possible take into consideration the wants of the freshers / new hires. You have a great company that we want to work for, but if senior management doesn't grant our requests, we'll try to find other places that will. For example some of the freshers joined Infosys because of the prospect of moving around the country working on multiple clients, working in multiple fields (IVS - BCM - Retail - Communication), working INTERNATIONALLY, essentially the lure of consulting. Making that idea in the head of your youngest employees a reality will help retain said employees and benefit the company as they are more widely experienced.

    I worked at Infosys full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great load of clients, Pay is good.

    Cons

    No balls approach, hyperconsrvtv.Tatent is eclipsed by how old a rat is in the company hierarchy. Senior management has not much clue over what the sales and middle management do. lower rungs of senior management is just slouchy, their lives are like tenured rats at some slowpoke school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like Terry says, On the Waterfront, its so far a could have been. Unlike Terry, It still could. Just get some fresh blood from the market to run the show.

    Pros

    Will learn a lot with different clients. Great to start career and security to individuals.

    Cons

    Lots of Politics and bureaucracy. Under Payment to employees and loads of work. The No work from home policy should be discouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Majority of the managers don't treat subordinates well. But that's the majority with IT companies. Otherwise, it's actually a secured place for anyone to start their career. Work from home should be encouraged now for the Planet.

    Not a place to work if you are expecting a global company. This is a Indian company with Indian mindset

    I have been working at Infosys

    Pros

    In good times, you get reasonable freedom

    Cons

    Lack of vision. extremely young work force leading to 'process is the answer to all problems' mentality. Good process does not generate good output. Understanding benefits requires a phd in economics or mathematics. People do not specialize in anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without investment in clients, there is no harvesting. Have a common framework to evaluate everyone based on client needs. Delivery is focused on people while client services and onsite people suffer between the clients expectations and delivery orders
