    Pros

    It has a good customer base and lot of experience. Opportunity is almost in every possible technology and all kinds of IT roles/positions exist.

    Cons

    Not a good pay master. It's too crowded so your voice may get lost. HR policies for Indians who have moved from India to US geography are not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the cons.
