    Pros

    Good relocation policy. You can find new projects much easier even though you may not like it.

    Cons

    Management style is old school in some accounts 3rd world. Less opportunities and sometimes you will stuck in one account for ever. Appraisal system is very bad and doesn't favor lateral employees at all.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have specific advise to management but the company should split into at least 2 companies and become more lean. Managements are typically overheads in the service industry but they bank on lower layer performance to excel but they still are overheads and there are lot at this company.
