I worked at Pointwest full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Has great training, if you're lucky there are really great seniors there that can serve as mentors specially if you're a new graduate. Great office too. Everyone is nice and friendly. Supervisors and immediate superiors are accommodating and sincere, well some are. Has onsite opportunities.
Cons – Has bond for newly grads, and eventually no career management. The expected cycle is for those from boot camps/newly grads, to eventually resign from the company after their 3 year contracts due to uncompetitive salary. Then company will then hire new batch of boot campers. Also, contractual employees and new hires are paid way above
Advice to Senior Management – Stop being cheap and stop your profit only bottomline. Maybe have a long term goal of keeping quality employees and offer competitive services than milking boot campers.

I have been working at Pointwest full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – There's opportunity to work onsite with clients. In terms of dollars, you will definitely be earning above Philippine salary. But money is of course not everything. They will definitely promote the notion that Filipino workmanship is key and is one of the best, if not better than most Indian contracting firms onsite (kind of biased here but it IS true just because the communication gap is next to nothing--and communication is key for any consulting company)
Cons – Like most consulting/outsourcing firms, increasing the client's bottom line is high priority. Which really means contractors--although more qualified or more skilled--have to deal with go with the spectrum of the 'underpaid'.
Once onsite, there is little room for salary increases, bonuses, as you are basically doing contracting for clientele.
Advice to Senior Management – Make salary more competitive.
