    Pros

    - Great culture
    - Fast track growth opportunities
    - Merit driven culture

    Cons

    - Compensation is an issue.
    - There is very limited interaction to the teams outside the continent. That limits the exposure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing the good work. Provide opportunities for cross-country movement to staff.

    I worked at PwC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with different clients; some really intelligent people
    Possible international exposure
    Good brand name in the market

    Cons

    Heavily perception dependent company; your people manager can screw you over if something goes wrong between you and him; good feedback from clients does not count.

    India Technology consulting (where I worked) had a huge bias for Bengali people.. many managers in Delhi, Mumbai, bangalore are Bengalis sent from Kolkata for promotion; instead of hiring locally available talent. These people do not know the local market and usually have high egos (expect non-bengali juniors to call them DA and DI e.g. Pradip da, Dipankar Da, Sanjukta Di etc)

    Secondment opportunities are frequently distributed in Kolkata as against any location (Kolkata being based in Eastern India has minimal industrial and commercial activity as compared to say Delhi or Mumbai or Bangalore - but maximum recruitment still happens there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the person dependency and implement robust processes which cannot be compromised. Also, Partners (some) should stop behaving like gods and connect more with their teams.

    Pros

    Good people and a friendly atmosphere. Very good brand to work with globally

    Cons

    The top management is mediocre and leadership team has to take note of the same. Not a collaborative environment and very soloed approach to the client. The practice lines cannibalize each other in a bid to build their own kingdom
