    Pros

    Was good till h1b problems show up in media. Good learning portals inside organization, but you rarely get a chance to look into them

    Cons

    Pushing managers to put bad ratings to even good workers. Bad politics inside the company. Dont believe these guys anymore, they will put highly techie people in some projects that don't need any technical expertise and after some years they will throw you out, even if you work good for the clients.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose hard working people just for the sake of saving your favourable guys
