    I worked at Business & Decision India full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - BND has a great reputation with Microsoft, so you'll have the opportunity for some very good exposure.
    - Work with talented people
    - Work flexibility

    Cons

    - Upper management is -extremely- shady. They overbill clients, force you onto projects they know are death marches for profitability.
    - Extremely poor project management business unit (extremely inexperienced PMO in Scottsdale).
    - Performance evaluations are pretty non existent.
    - Lots of politics in the office
    - Almost all Senior Consultants are forced to take on additional roles in the name of "personal growth" and "management positions", truth be told the promotions are granted politically, and forcing additional roles are simply setting you up for failure.
    - Untechnical managers in manager roles
    - Encouraged to cheat on certifications.

    Advice to Management

    You hire extremely talented people, why not treat them so they'll enjoy working for you?

    The dedication of the employee base at B&D is admirable and there are pockets of industry-credible capabilities.
