    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
