    low pay
    very poor work-life balance - managers believe in work life integration and not work life balance

    Invest in your people
    stop bringing in people from offshore to onsite role - hire people here in the US - offshore folks do not have adequate client management skills

    Pros

    Very good place to start your career. Loads of opportunities come in your way. The limit is how much you can do at any point. These opportunities are rare in other companies and you may only get after spending time

    Cons

    work life balance...but has any one else found it?
    low pay
    The company openly accepts that they dont value people that much...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work..
