    Pros

    Will give you salaries upto market standards of Noida.
    Few but yes good clients like Morgan Stanley.
    Some managers are good.

    Cons

    Poor location.
    Parking is at remote location for male employees.(threat of getting robbed)
    Poor breakout areas(don’t even serve good tea)
    Poor appraisals
    If you are working for Morgan Stanley beware as these people are sitting in Mumbai office only. Will make your personal life hell.
    Hire bad resources from market.
    People with low notice period always welcome even if they are so so bad.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Headstrong full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Few things -

    1) Option for working in different tech space
    2) few good people who can be called as real mentors

    Cons

    1) horrible politics once Genpact took over
    2) worst bosses - they would rather kill your happiness and though praise you immense for your work but hike only given to true followers
    3) few so called leaders would ask you to fudge data to make them rosey for clients which is beyond my ethics and lead to my moving out after 6+ yrs

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote folks to leadership level who are working only for their vested interest nothing else.
