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

    Pros

    Quite sensitive to Human needs
    Good Work Content although depends on individual luck for such assignments
    Solid work environment with great facilities

    Cons

    Not very good with annual hikes, may be due to weak economy.. The annual CRR cycle can create a lot of inequity, however that is something common with all big IT setups.
    Some managers are homophobic & dont take women in their teams

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do a diversity audit. My present manager proudly says that he intentionally doesnt take women into his team as he feels he cannot push them to finish some project deliverable. these are artificial barriers that women must unknowingly deal with

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Some very good staff, ability to work with well known customers, if you happen to "land" in a good team then could be a good experience

    Cons

    Consulting is top heavy - limited career opportunities, culture not supportive - may as well be working for yourself, very small percentage of staff are able to achieve bonus, forced ranking (group and match to normal distribution) appraisals cause problems for some teams, your consulting partner has absolute power over your future, no work life balance, internal systems are bureacratic (incl expenses), little or no support systems for the consultants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    establish a clear strategy including where consulting fits
    clear out the "leaders" that are harmful to the culture

    Doesn't Recommend
