    I have been working at Keane full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is US based IT consulting company with lot of Fortune clients. They sponsor visas and green cards. Good salary (depends on the client).

    Cons

    Benches consultants when there is no project. Does not provide training while on bench. You are with your own team when on project, you will hardly be dealing with Keane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat human resources as they deserve to be treated.

    I worked at Keane

    Pros

    Multiple clients. Offshore /Onshore model gives good exposure to working with large teams and handling complex time sensitive issues.

    Cons

    Poor Compensation. Long Work hours. No empathy/guidance from senior management towards day to day work assignment or long term career assessment. Rampant nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given the number of hours employees spent at work at client site, should be better compensated. Should have feedback channel. Higher management should be actively appraised and made sensitive to day to day employees issues and redressal.

    I worked at Keane

    Pros

    You get paid overtime depending on which client you are assigned. There are some bright employees that I'm proud to work with.

    Cons

    1. They will cut your salary shortly after you are employed with them. They make a good salary offer, and then reduce after your other job offers have vanished.
    2. You will get let go after completing an assignment; pipeline is small
    3. Unless you work in India, job prospects or movement are zero to none.
    4. Your boss is virtual; I've never spoken or met my supervisor; communication is via email and usually addressed to a group. When you leave Keane you won't be able to get a recommendation from your boss because he/she don't know you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not over promise potential employees with salary, opportunities when there are none.
