    flexible timing and good infrastructure.

    Cons

    A lots of internal politics. appraisal is worst, you can get low hike even for top rating , totally depends upon your boot polishing skill. Transparency is low. Legacy work with limited clients. In many accounts you have to be technology neutral.Totally dominated by client.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on own product also and bring more transparency.

    I worked at Headstrong full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance , Salary, techilla meet, Annual function, awesome teachers and mentor, always reachable HR, founder from IIT-K with greatest personality, IItians all around, almost all the facility one should have being in good MNC, and moreover the financial giants like Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs with all top 10 Invest banks in campus and what not. It's forever HS for me..and I am sure people who experienced Techspan/HS days will agree with me.

    Oops forget to mention about ATR (Accross the Road) Daaru..Lol ;-)

    Just Love & Respect for all the golden memories which I conder as an asset for lifetime.

    Cheers!!!

    Cons

    HS is HS...It was only getting better with time...Unfortunately it got acquired by Genpact (Yes I mean it) and the bure din started...First of all it lost the "headstrong" brand in Wall Street..People were familiar with the name Headstrong and not Genpact..Techies and IItians started moving..also a big number of top management asked to leave (don't know the reason)..it was getting worse day by day...Anyways we cherish the Headstrong days and not the Genoact days.

    Advice to Management

    Only respect for the great quality management people all around. I am having more than 10 years of industry exp, and 6 years with top global banks as an operations manager...whatever I am today all credit to this people.
