    Pros

    Exposure to Fortune 500 companies doing cutting edge technical implementations.

    Cons

    If you have a bad manager or group then you are pretty much stuck in the role. Salary is subpar compared to competitions. Training is almost non-existent for US-based employee. Raise or promotion? Forget it! Why would they give you a raise when they are milking the client at the same rate for the last 6 months? Client will not give you respect as you are their dispensable "contingent worker".

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO US EMPLOYEES!

    Pros

    - Strong staff of leaders
    - Salaries somewhat competitive
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    Work Life balance is not the best. Loss a close family member and was not allowed to attend the funeral.
    India focused, if you are not from India there is a glass ceiling.
     Not a entrepreneurial as they advertise. A lot bureaucracy to plow through

    Advice to Management

    Need to perform a "voice of the employee" by an outside firm
    Need to apply "lean concepts" to many of your administrative processes
    Minimize the differences between employees from different countries

    Pros

    Infosys has international scope and reach, so for a new consultant it is a very good 'learning lab".

    Cons

    Infosys is Indian owned and managed, and as such seasoned consultants who are not Indian are often discounted. A very political environment, that can lead to frustration and dissatisfaction for senior/seasoned practitioners.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the global nature of the firm and need for global perspectives. Leverage your investments in human resources more effectively.

    Infosys is a global firm focused on technology implementations at a majority of the Global Fortune 1000.

    Make a decision and implement it.

    Pros

    Generally good benefits in comparison to most software services providers of Indian origin.

    Cons

    Opportunities you get is purely a function of being at the right place at the right time. The career growth is stagnant unless you are in good books of top management.

    Pros

    Talented people, excellent management. There are plenty of opportunities and flexibility in moving around. India dev centers were more fun than being at US. Plenty of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    very competitive, if you are not growing further in titles, people consider you not a good fitment. Technology people should be given adequate respect. somehow the culture of "good-talker" is best has been ingrained in the DNA.
