    Pros

    You get to work with reputed customers.

    Cons

    What a load of crap they have hired recently in the name of Management. Incompetence is being rewarded and those who work their backs off are left in the lurch. HRBP is a joke and they will lie through their noses when questioned. Two-faced Managers are only adding to this conundrum. Join this company if you are good at ego massaging your seniors. They really love that in India office and you'd go a long way (read good hikes, 100% bonuses and fast track promotions). However, if you cannot butter your Seniors all the way till Virginia, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should seriously look into what is happening in his Secret Sauce that so many good employees are leaving. Should talk to ex-employees and see what went wrong and what could have been managed in a better way by the Management hired in India.

    How about a quantitative study on Glassdoor reviews prior to July 2014 and after? Am sure that would reveal a few glaring numbers to say the least.

    Pros

    Office Infrastructure, Location, They pay above market salary

    Cons

    The company terminates you without a notice and that too basis some scores. Felt like as if i was in some school. I mean I was not even given an ultimatum or meeting with HR. The only time HR met me was to discuss my performance on my pre-decided last day. Nothing of this was told by hiring team that it is a possibility that I will land up in the market within 3 months.
    The HR was just not willing to listen to me, but only interested in staring at me. I mean it would be highly appreciable if eye contact is maintained rather than checking out indecently.
    Please join this organization if you want to risk your career and be subject to the above disrespectful behavior towards females

    Advice to Management

    Please have the recruiters tell people what they are getting into and hire decent people who have respect for females
