    Pros

    Strong leadership team. Good people and very STEM and millennial savvy. I've also been impressed by the quality of my technical colleagues overseas (much better on average than other IT outsourcing companies I have known).

    Cons

    Sales team could be more aggressive. I think they undersell the company. Sales is the weakest link for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Train sales team to focus more on 3rd-party verifiable competitive differentiators - like the fact that Virtusa is the largest IT employer in Sri Lanka - A country which has the highest STEM education rating among major IT off-shore destinations according to the latest World Economic Forum Competitiveness Rankings.

  3. Good Company to work with. Accepts projects with tight deadlines and some times pressures the employees.

    Pros

    People can enjoy if they really are not worried about their future.

    Cons

    Very bad management. Top level management is good compared to middle level. I think they should recruit the managers with values and who has a clear vision.

    Advice to Management

    It's beter to take hear to all the employees. Take feedback for managers too.

    Pros

    I get payed If i am on or off a project so it is better then free lance in that regard. Can work remotely.

    Cons

    Very slow growth.
    Often have to live out of a hotel for weeks at a time when on a project.
    very annoying to get expense reports done to get my money from travel back.
    Never have me do the work that i find interesting.
    slow growth, does not have me on the path i want to be on.
    They are lies I have had to lie to clients for them.
    Salary is much lower then industry standards.
     I feel the team in India is taken advantage of.

    Advice to Management

    There need to be more opportunities for growth in planes were employees want to grow.

    Pros

    Virtusa goes above and beyond trying to make employees comfortable in the office. Bagels on Fridays, Game days once a month on Fridays, office outings, fun people, foozeball, etc...

    Virtusa is definitely growing and in the future will probably have a lot more to offer to their employees.

    Cons

    The pay is way below industry standard. As an entry level employee you will more than likely not receive proper training. Most likely you will be placed on a project way over your head just so you can be billable.

    Pros

    Great hunger to grow. Hence this is the company which will be happening for the next 5 years;. Company has a focus on deep mining one vertical. They are able to put in sales structure as the market demands. Following close to Cognizant path and should ideally reach there.
    Its a friendly place to work with. Indian centers are nice and cozy. Rest of world offices are sales offices and with austerity. Good company overall

    Cons

    Company has put in processes that of a 5 Bn company, but is only a dime of it. So it causes a drag. Company does not have much training in places. When u join in there is a host of compulsory training which irritates employees. But not a major deterrent. High growth companies like many lead to low on work life balance. But it is enjoyable. Company is putting in back end infrastructure in most of its offices. Colombo office usually creates a lethargic effect on backbone of company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring best in class processes
