    Pros

    Unique and more growth opportunities for new talent. Options to take higher role and management supports such initiatives.

    Cons

    Not a good pay master, management is more focused on investor's delight instead of associates. Cost cutting at all the corners instead of investment for long term sustainability.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking into talent retention. Associates expect a lot from the new management on associate delight (including monitory benefits) but nothing much is happening. Company needs a lot of investment on associates, solutions and capability building.

    Pros

    - global presence
    - good client roster including many Fortune 500 companies
    - "Practice" approach to building competency
    - CMMI Level 5 capability

    Cons

    - Compensation
    - Insufficient allocation of resources towards competency building

    Advice to Management

    To mine the potential within the company, existing talent needs to be valued (both in salary and role terms); otherwise there will be a 'revolving door' phenomenon costing the company talent and money
