    I have been working at Headstrong full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a good structure and have employee friendly policies and have ok benefits - health, dental abd vision coverage as well as pain vacation and sick days
    They pay well if you are a lateral joinee in North america
    They will keep you on bench with benefits for atleast 45 days if your previous project ended

    Cons

    HR doesnt always listen/respond to employee feedback and with Genpact acquisition, getting more business has become the focus instead of appreciating existing employees.
    They prefer hiring from out with higher pay instead of helping existing employees get a more decent pay.

    Advice to Management

    When someone is valued, do not give them more responsibility and then negotiate and salary increase. if the employee is looking for something specific, try to address it instead of ignoring it.
