    Pros

    A very friendly work environment with great mentoring by some of the best experts in the industry. The company provides competitive benefits with some great upside potential that would not be available in a major. There is a diverse mix of projects and staff gets the chance to gain great experience worldwide. This is the only place where fresh graduates can work and learn on real projects from Day 1. The opportunities you are given are tremendous if you are proactive. There is a diverse mix of people and a chance to learn from everyone. The management is very understanding and accommodating, if you are sincere. Overall, working at this place can truly advance your career by leaps and bounds and provide truly complete job satisfaction.

    Cons

    None. Working here has been the best career decision!

    Pros

    Only good part in working for this company is its location being in suburb, good housing is available within few minutes of drive.

    Cons

    In the last 1 year itself, more than 20% employees have left the company - all experienced. Many jobs require to work at client site, some domestic but mostly at international places as per client schedule. Junior employees are forced to stay at international client location for months. Prospect for growth is next to nil. No external training. Many good mentors have already left the company. The employment contract is very harsh and will be shown only after joining. The company is family owned and family centric. Lower pay than market average for similar job and experience.
