    Pros

    At its peak, it was one of the best Indian IT consulting firm to work for ...

    Cons

    Should have gotten rid of the name "Satyam" ... it will always bring the accounting scandal.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the name "Satyam" - there is no brand value, except that the people dealing with customers have to be apologetic for something they didn't do and keep explaining the scandal. It's done - move on!
