    Pros

    Great place to start the career with a world class training in Mysore. Great Infrastructure facilities and good learning experience throughout training and in projects. Teaches a lot about the corporate world.

    Cons

    Pay package and pay revisions are some cons. Work-Life balance depends on the clients for which projects are executed.

    Current Employee - Technology Lead (US) in Northbrook, IL

    Pros

    Its a huge organization with lot of potential and opportunities. It has earned lot of respect globally and has lot of reputed customers. Its pros are as follows-
    1. They have built awesome infrastructures for their employees.
    2. Talented workforce.
    3. Work life balance in some projects.
    4. Its a brand name.

    Cons

    But I still feel that their primary focus is just the growth of business rather than being good at what they do and what they offer. Competition is tough and the market is driven by innovation and quality. Small start-ups are doing far better and awesome work than what we are doing at Infosys. I understand that with bigger organizations there are associated challenges as well. But if Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Can do it then Indian software giants can also do it.

    Few more cons are listed below-
    1. Middle management is not motivating.
    2. Lot of bureaucracy.
    3. Relationship is more important than focus.
    4. Right skill is not mapped with right role or job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up and be ready to fly.

    Pros

    - Awesome Co-Workers.
    - Good place to learn new skills.
    - Having a good manager makes life relatively more easy.

    Cons

    - Long Working Hours (60+) with no over time!
    - Too much red tape... mostly biased against contracters & employees.
    - No growth in company if you do not write mandatory tests every year...feels almost like being in school!
    - Bad Work/Life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Do not agree to everything to that the clients asks of you just to retain the project. A day has only 24 hours and we do not have teams of unlimited resources.
    - Do not give false promises especially when you know you will not fulfill it from the start.
