    Pros

    Always get to work with a good team and big clients which helps in getting exposure.

    Cons

    People working at onsite usually get the fear of having to go back if the Project is not getting extended and there is no other alternate project is available. People are not allowed to be in bench at onsite even for a period of 2 to 3 weeks.

    If you are a good performer, dont even think about it.

    Pros

    - Job security is almost guaranteed if you can code a hello world program.
     - Stable and ongoing long projects.Though it depends a lot but if you have a Visa, you pretty much gonna consume it fully.
     - You can relax during your tenure as its a company full of average performers so its ok if you are one of them for some time.

    Cons

    - As a top performer, you ll feel why on earth are you working for them. Even if you are a Rating 1 holder for consistent years, you are just another guy in 1.65 lac people.
     - Totally business driven and dont care at all about their long serving employees.
    - Innovation / ideas are almost dead. You ll hear a loooooot of lectures for the vision and non-linear growth but NO concrete action.
     - In my tenure of 8 years not even a single meeting happened where concerns were addressed. Those sessions are just for the sake of doing a session.
     - There is a negative feeling about company in employees as none of their policy is employee friendly.
    A policy in Infosys means trouble leading to a dead end .
     - The crappiest ever Certification system linked with promotions. You have to give absurd certifications to fetch points. I remember giving aeroplane engineering certification while working on Java project and banking domain :)
     - As a good performer you will only get more and more work, forget getting paid for it in any other manner
     - Way below market salaries.
    - I lost trust in them as what they publish in media is not what happens. For last 2 years they have published they gave hike to onsite employees, Not even a single penny was increased for us.
     - Visa/immigration issues, God only can help you from the laziest and most irresponsible legal team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - You have a non performing middle management layer which wont let performers come up.
    There are so many senior employees who are not ethical, highly unprofessional and literally dumb. I think such middle layer is causing downfall.
     - The policies are good if they help. Your policies are more of a trouble.
    - I dont know why you cannot have a good legal team.
    - Take care of employee frustrations when they start building up not when they decide to quit :)

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

    Pros

    onsite opportunities, some good and sincere employees

    Cons

    The company policies are only to trouble the employee, your management will think you work for them not for the company and like they own your lives.
    When you get onsite, your role is reduced to a project coordinator, basically your learning is reduced to nothing but a SME for the application you represent. So when you look for a change, basically you are no where

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the employee too if you will regain your glory.

    I have been working at Infosys

    Pros

    Great training, Mysore complex is world class. The site has world leading facilities and is self sustaining. Not sure if there is any other to compare. Enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    HR policies are overwhelming and restrictive. If you are on the lower levels then your chances for promotion are not good. Too much separation between low and higher levels.
