    Pros

    Nothing. Some managers are good and understanding.

    Cons

    They have just one big project. Other companies like Infosys, Wipro etc... are eating into their share.
    Terrible work life balance. They take too much work than they have resources for.
    HR promises greencard on phone. No greencard is done. Even managers don't have it and are waiting.
    Health care is useless. High deductible plan. Even small consultancies have better plans.
    Salary is rock bottom.
    Heavy politics, no peace of mind.
    High attrition. People join and leave quickly.
    Management is involved in back-stabbing each other.

    Advice to Management

    Change the working culture. Focus on long term than short term.
