    Pros

    They value human potential. Try to provide growth opportunities to people. Salaries are competitive. Good performances are recognized. Lots of onsite opportunities.

    Cons

    Do not invest in buffer resources. Many accounts struggle due to non-supply of resources in time. Recruitment process is not rigorous leading to bad resources coming in.
