    Pros

    Good for freshers or to start carrier. Work culture is good and management listens to your concerns.

    Cons

    Management is still learning and coming up with new directive with every new scenario(It is bound to happen in small companies). After few years of working, you may not get new work. Work hours can sometimes be very exhaustive and management is reluctant to give compensatory off. They do have comp-off with many restrictions.

    Pros

    Did not find any till date.

    Cons

    Onsite Review : Very less salary compared to laterals and to contractors hired at onsite Too much pressure on people who come from offshore , offshore management , onsite engagement , client IDs increase , get more projects , value-adds , updates etc. Why expect all this only from low paid people you have brought from offshore Expect more from people whom you pay more , laterals enjoy here and don't take any work nor they are asked for ever Nil management , no awards/rewards/recognition for hard working people Comp off policy is not good Low 401k benefits Too high insurance plans
