Pros

Easy to get in to
Lots of learning (as you will be expected to work exhorbitant amounts)

Cons

Need to be in the office early, but you also have to be on the phone late with offshore team
The second it makes them more money, they will throw your career under the bus in favor of their own interests
"Excellence" is expected, meaning you will probably never hear a compliment or get a "job well done" but you will certainly hear about it quick enough when you mess up.
Management doesn't care about what you want for your own career path, they just railroad you into whatever will make them the best profit.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees more often, instead of thinking you know what's best. Sometimes, what is best for the employee and the company might be different things, and you should bring this to light and try to work with employees, not just railroad them into things that they hate until they finally quit. There is a reason your turnover is so high - you don't even bother to ask your employees about nearly anything, even regarding their own career path!

    Pros

    Majority of the projects are from Microsoft. So you get to work on the same tools and technologies used at Microsoft. Good for freshers out of college.

    Cons

    High work pressure environment. Employees are expected to work 15-16 hours a day and dedicate their life upon joining this company. Zero work-life balance. No respect for employees. No company culture. High attrition as most employees get frustrated and leave. My advice to new hires is think twice, no think thrice before taking up an offer with them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with dignity and respect, both the ones who work there and those who leave for better opportunities. Also please stop writing self reviews on this site. They will not help your reputation.
