    I worked at Infosys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a good company. Lots of opportunities & learning scope. Latest technologies. Lots of clients. Friendly colleagues. Great place indeed.

    Cons

    Not many downsides that I find. If you are hard working, there shall be a lot of growth & learning opportunities available.

    Advice to Management

    Pay needs to be increased. Pressure on employees should be reduced. Work-life balance for employees needs to be taken care of.

    I have been working at Infosys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable working environment. Chance to work with large clients. Salary standards matching market levels. Defined growth path. Friendly co-workers. Global Presence.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Very process oriented and not much flexible. Growth is slow and presents limited chances for horizontal movements across the organisation. Lot of things are dependent on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the rigid processes. Offer more flexibility for employees to move across different areas of work. Start a process to have employee managers looking forward to working with them towards defined long term career goals.

    I worked at Infosys as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team leads and architects try to embrace new technology approaches and new stacks. This provides a good opportunity for learning for everybody.
    The company manages to get contracts with big name companies everywhere in the USA.

    Cons

    The company is just another huge abusive monster company that makes use of all its employees who are in need of visas in the USA. The company pays due diligence on neglecting the USA labor code by not paying overtime. Anyways, all those employees came from overseas and needs Infosys for the visas.
    The company has close to zero professional code, other than beautiful presentations to present to clients and talk big to them about how much they can achieve. Only to find deadlines are being postponed, architects are frustrated, developers are being squeezed and crushed under pressure and client getting pissed only to be soothed back by some good happy hours Infosys will manage to make him happy.
    In the middle of design technical discussion, don’t be surprised if they all switched to talk Hindi even if non-Indians are present. The company’s process is quite messed up, eager to mess the culture of their client in the same way.
    Did I mention the there’s no such thing as work-life balance; that term is more of a dream if you decided to join there.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs new assessment for its leads and management. Regular employees have to have their personal time respected. Encouraging an atmosphere for workaholics doesn't necessarily provide a path to success. Employees have families and their families deserve their time too. They have personal time and that they deserve that to. Stressing employees is just a clear ingredient to failing to keep them, because they will run with the first opportunity out there.

    I worked at Infosys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is in line with Big 4 advisory firms. You will travel quite a bit and can earn a ton of miles and achieve airline, hotel, and rental car statuses rather quickly.

    Cons

    Infosys will recruit MBAs with the promise of management consulting and/or strategy work, but this work is rarely sold by Infosys. The vast majority of work for "management consultants" is done in the PMO of large scale technology (SAP, Oracle, etc) implementation engagements. This entails zero problem solving and the engagements can go on for years. Stay away if you truly want to do traditional management consulting/performance improvement/strategy work.

    Leadership and firm structure changes are constant.

    Expense reimbursement process is antiquated and lengthy.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with recruits about the type of work they will do.
