    Pros

    Mostly leave you alone to do your job. H1b consultants are friendly but not very competent.

    Cons

    HIghly bureaucratic and inefficient. Administrative services fails to support field operations. Uses outdated technology that is poorly designed and cumbersome to use. No opportunity for growth. Literally no support for travel except airline tickets. Everything else you are on your own. However they have ridiculously low travel expense guidelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not India. You may be able to completely disregard your employees in Mumbia but that attitude only leads to high turnover in the US. Also, you need to start holding people accountable especially in the administrative services areas. Finance AP, HR and IT are a disaster. The technology you use is an embarrassment especially for a company that want's to present itself to clients as a technology solutions company.
