    Pros

    Excellent training for freshers from college. Regardless of your background in college, you get trained on the required skills in world class facilities and start working in real time projects.

    Cons

    Not very good in compensation model and personal growth is very slow because of the restriction in the promotion model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to pay your experienced people more to keep them with the company.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Infosys full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Big employer with good benefits and job security

    Cons

    - lack of visibility into who to speak to for mentor-ship, guidance etc.
    - Salary structure is tricky as it is attached to a role as per new Global Compensation Structure which means you might end up getting a different salary than the one listed on your offer letter if you do not get the project they originally recruited you for.
    - All admin/accounting related processes are executed in India, hence delays for US based employees.
    - Not enough clarity about how to get other projects, who to speak to for projects. No process for this.
    - No travel policy for consulting. Most consultants are from India and are based at a particular client location for many years. Most projects are either support of development. Not many real consulting opportunties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Policies for US based employees need to be clearly different and communicated. I am not asking for discrimination but employees travelling from India have different personal life and priorities than employees based in the US. US based employees are not going back to India...!! Hence the project placement should be done accordingly.

    I have been working at Infosys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Multiple domains
    Great team members
    Benefits comparable with the best (in US)

    Cons

    Bureaucratic setup, complicated and convulated policies that some times make getting things done more difficult than they are supposed to be
    Many people are just too happy where they are, doing what they are required minimally to keep sitting and maintaining status quo. they dont like being challenged, they dont like being pushed for any thing. There is this interia of statying in the comfort zone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of people have grown too quick too fast with this organization during the boom, which is nice. I guess management should also make way for people who have demonstarted time and again that they could be the next leader. All you need is to find them, keep them and groom them.
