    Pros

    Best Comapny to work with multiple clients experience.
    Better pay for onsite hires.

    Cons

    Low wages to Onsite who came from offshore.
    Your life in CTS or an Indian based firm will be based on your immediate supervisor not the organization. This trend needs to be changed.

    Advice to Management

    Need to change the senior management frequently for better support to technical people at onsite. I could see the subordinates are suffering a lot just because of one supervisor even if CTS is such a good organization.
    Need to recognize the talent properly.
