    I have been working at Infosys (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will have bragging rights to saying that you survived Infosys.

    Cons

    Infosys prides itself in being a diverse company - That is a lie. They bring all their employees from India on H1Bs and have no intention in becoming a US employer here. You will be the only US hire on a team of 10 H1Bs. Only recently did they begin hiring Americans en-mass because their abuse of H1Bs was uncovered and those H1B visas would be expiring. Americans serve as backup for the inevitable. However you won't be seeing those new hires on client side. Infosys decided to bring their Indian work practices to the US by building "tech hubs" and hiding employees there. These tech hubs are nothing short of coding sweatshops.

    Infosys stands for innovation - That might have been true when Vishal Sikka was still the CEO, as he was leading the company in the direction of AI and automation. The new CEO was a previous board member of Capegemini - a french company for IT consulting, outsourcing and professional services. You can expect that Infosys will be going back to its roots, as a SERVICE company. Infosys provides cookie cutter services tailored to the client. Innovation is not the word I would use as a founding principle of this company.

    Working at Infosys means - Life on the road. You are expected to take any opportunity that comes your way, even if that means moving to the other side of the country with no promise of a project. Here at this company, the client is god. Since Infosys prides itself in being customer first, you are expected to interview for these projects. It is similar to looking for a second job. If you don't meet customer requirements, tough luck. Managers will cast you aside as soon as the customer says no and you're left on your own. Some people pack up their lives, move, only to be then told that they have no project opportunities at the new location. They will break your lease but that has a limit, and moving costs - a measly 1500. You will most definitely be paying a good portion out-of-pocket.

    If you join Infosys as a recent graduate from a US college or university, you will go through a 2 month training period where they will place you in streams that have little to do with your background/experience. There are people with masters in CS, IT, to people whose only coding experience is from a bootcamp in the same group. Once your training is complete, you'll get a work location completely different from what was on your offer letter. Management may consider your location constraints, but in the end they will tell you to move.

    Expect long bench times. If you are lucky, along with poor work hours, you will be put on a support project doing maintenance work. For the less fortunate, once you complete your training, you will be sitting at home for months on end, wasting your time and not getting any experience. While you are on general bench, managers from different teams will call you about projects and try to sell you to the client for something you are not. You will go through the process of interviewing, only to find out that the client is looking for a mid to senior level person. It will be one disappointment after the next. In the end, you'll work on something completely different from your interests, background, and training. You will have little to no say on what project you work on. The only silver lining to all this is that Infosys will continue to pay you during this time.

    Work life balance - none. I have absolute respect for the employees that work after hours everyday, but it is just not doable for most. Expect to take calls late at night, since most of the actual company processes are in India. There is absolutely no corporate presence here in the US aside from HR. Even then, US HR serves merely as the middle man to HR in India.

    Mediocre salary & benefits. Company does not offer competitive wages and pays below market rate.

    My advice: Avoid this company like the plague. Look for better options, they will come around. Save yourself the headache.

    Advice to Management

    Actually invest in your hires and nurture them. Don't shy away from risk. Give them actual opportunities to grow and develop. Good luck retaining your US hires with your complete disregard for them and mediocre salary/benefits.
