    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

    Chance to work in multiple projects.
    Organizational structure, which allows resources to grow horizontally as well as vertically.

    Cons

    my experience with HR after exiting was not satisfactory. I felt there is a need of more professionalism.
    Annual appraisals process is not good.

    Advice to Management

    Improvisation required in annual rating process. It looked outdated.

    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

    Pros

    A significant talent drought leads to opportunities for even the most mediocre talents.

    Cons

    Very little and very unstable existing business. Management mantra seems to be self-belief will deliver results - this faith based vision is more apt for the 80s, not the modern business environment. Terrible investment decisions in inorganic plays.

    Advice to Management

    Lose US management and invest in truly entrepreneurial business leaders.
