    Pros

    Amazing spread of technology.
    Very Open workculture
    No racial/gender bias. Always stress on maintaining this work atmosphere.
    Big name clients, high exposure projects, for development projects

    Cons

    There is some political atmosphere in application support projects. But thats common in other places I've worked too
    Again in very large support engagements, quite a few people who are staffed have no idea what they should be doing, and manage to leverage work done by others. And not surprisingly, same sorts indulge in the politics/gossip/ass kissing and favoritism in turn.If it were a high effort work these sorts would have been weeded out, but unfortunately that is not, and you have to learn to work with them if you're coming from a good development background.
    Really big org, if you hide under a rock no one will come looking for you, and you'll be at same place if you choose to hide. How this translates into overall competency is anyone's guess.

    Advice to Management

    The trend is competent people are often the ones switching jobs. The PD cycle is bull**** sometimes.


  2. "Stressful at times,"
