    Could be better

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros- global presence
    - good client roster including many Fortune 500 companies
    - "Practice" approach to building competency
    - CMMI Level 5 capability

    Cons- Compensation
    - Insufficient allocation of resources towards competency building

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo mine the potential within the company, existing talent needs to be valued (both in salary and role terms); otherwise there will be a 'revolving door' phenomenon costing the company talent and money

    Limited Vision, Linear Business Model

    Head of Sales, BFSI (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsA significant talent drought leads to opportunities for even the most mediocre talents.

    ConsVery little and very unstable existing business. Management mantra seems to be self-belief will deliver results - this faith based vision is more apt for the 80s, not the modern business environment. Terrible investment decisions in inorganic plays.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
