    I worked at Professional Access full-time

    Pros

    I worked here when there was no real company and no offices anywhere. A great person was the Indian CEO and we built this company with joy, dedication and grew it to a large team. In the end, the US management screwed everyone who built the company and made some petty money out if selling it. From the reviews, it is apparent they eventually screwed the company as well. The best people from offshore and US left a while ago.

    Yes, they made a few million dollars, but they could have been like Infosys, they never realized their true potential

    Cons

    The management in US is the real problem. Really unprofessional, greedy and just wanting to make a fast buck. Offshore team used to be good, now I believe none of the real good people are left here anymore.

    All the US people have been bad from the beginning. There was no hope there from the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The problem was always the management in US. You did not respect the real people who built the India team, and thought you could do a better job. See what has happened now.

    Pros

    Technology wise it is a good to work with. More of maintenance kind of work.

    I have been working at Professional Access full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good learning opportunity.
    Good salary hicks, but salary is not the only one thing in our life. If we don't have any personal life what we can do with salary?

    Cons

    HR team is only for the name sake, no personal & professional life balance, leaving office by 6:30pm is like half day full day means 9:00pm. Management will think if they gave high salary every body will work by leaving family also.
    Actually this is happened because of old employees who are there for more than 5 years, now if we are expecting the change then it won't happen.
    One more bad thing, if you worked for any module in your previous project, your entire life in PA will be in same module.
    Managers doesn't have any control on clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change your attitudes and try to get some command on clients.
    Please don't consider employees as slaves, this is my humble request.
