    Pros

    different domain knowledge only if you get chance to work for good client

    Cons

    hahaha... its an endless list
    1)Management only talk to you if they have anything related to client issue else yo are just a money generating machine.
    2)no personal life... will make you work till midnight and then will expect you to come again at 9 AM. weekends are anytime will be working with no expectation of compoff.
    3)you have to beg for small small issues to the HR, Finance or yr technical heads
    4)only you will be blamed for anything goes wrong at client side, sales and tech team fights with each other blaming only consultants and its in efficiency
    5) you will be sent to a client side with projecting you as 4 5 years experienced professional , then client gonna screw you as he has expectations of a experienced professional
    6) you have to beg for your claims and salary and FnF settlement.

    list can go on. speak any of the insider. that will give you full picture.

    Advice to Management

    behave like management. you are growing, that good but you need to improve. respect your employees, they are the one who are generating money for you else close India Business because its in wrong hands currently.

    Cons

    Training is provided by some one who cant communicate properly and if u ask some questions..then be ready to get answer 'look on Google'

    Advice to Management

    To make them work more than a year

    Pros

    1. Excellent learning opportunities
    2. Exposure to different domains & technologies
    3. Being a consulting firm approach is totally different than any other s/w development one. Here, you get to groom yourself in all directions.

    Cons

    1. Very agile in nature
    2. Still not process oriented buT they have improved a lot in last couple of years.
    3. Lack of dedicated teams for specific roles & responsibilities.
    4. Lack bench strength, as focus is on maximum utilization of resources.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great job, specifically in last few years with new changes & trainings. Please keep on doing that.
    Take cons mentioned above in positive spirit, we do want this company & us to grow. All the best :)

    Pros

    Really good for learning new tools as you will have to work on multiple tools

    Cons

    Bad management, office politics and non-employee friendly environment. Get ready to take in a lot of pressure because you will be thrown into really tough situations, even as a fresher(without sufficient training. Oh yeah! company expects a single person to do and know everything everything-from documentation to deployment without 'almost' no training. Be in office whole day and have 0 life, unless you are a workaholic, in which case this is great! . Gives fake experience in cover letters of Icon consultants so that they can fool clients(They are really good at this! ). And they'll deploy a fresher on a project showing 2 or 3 years of experience in their resume. And for the fresher this is going to create a hell lot of issues, sleepless nights and work pressure. Now the most important question- Are you getting paid enough for all these?- Well no. Not enough for the headache you get. THEY HAVE A BOND so you can't leave easily as well. As already mentioned, don't expect a good working environment as most of the people you work with are in a non-healthy competition with each other. I've also noticed that a very few people(say a 7%-10% or even less) stay in company and leave the company immediately once the bond is over(No surprises there and I did the same). PLEASE KNOW that company has a 3 month notice period policy which makes things even harder if you want to leave. The number of opportunities I've lost with other companies are huge!. I've lost about 8 or 9 opportunities because all other employers need immediate joiners or within a month joiners. Well these are a few of them... there are more of course, but I'm done for now.

    Advice to Management

    As far as I knew non of my colleagues at that time was happy with the management. An employee feels like to work for her/his company when he/she feels home,happy and comfortable, which I didn't and most of them didn't get from Icon. I knew plenty of them there who worked their days and nights and didn't get enough appreciation. Give it to the deserving. Take care of your employees and they will take care of your company. And as of now your are doing a really bad job at taking care of your employees
