    A great place to start, but long term isn't an option

    Pros

    - It's a great first job right out of college. After "training" in India for 6 months you'll be asked to lead an offshore team from day one. The learning curve will be steep and thus the experience is rich. Resume looks fantastic after 1 year. -Expand a wide range of skills. Each engagement is different, but I've had the opportunity to pick up a large variety of technical and business skills in a short time. -The opportunity to work with Fortune 500 middle management on a daily basis right out of college. - The India experience was great, just strung on too long.

    Cons

    - The 6 month Columbus program is a huge waste of time for everyone. I understand the necessity of it, but even 5 years later it's still very unorganized and has zero translation to the onsite role which you have been brought on for. - Location and security/stability: If you have zero say in where you'll end up when returning from India. And if you end up in a small market or on a pilot project you'll likely be asked to move in your first year. If you end up in a major market (New York, Chicago, Seattle, Bentonville, Atlanta) you're set, but are required to move before receiving a promotion to manager. - Just the overall structure and values of the company. It's a very young company and thus it's filled with immaturity and inexperience throughout, which drags on you after a while. I could discuss this point further, but I'm sure it's expressed heavily in this thread.

    Good company - Most of it is what you make it!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1) Steep Learning curve 2) Flexibility to find avenues and work around areas of interest 3) Ability to move across different accounts/clients

    Cons

    1) Probability to learn from peers is random (based on which team you end up working in) 2) Most of the work is driven from off-shore, so your work is mostly managerial which is not great in the long term for your career 3) Team management becomes challenging considering the work is done elsewhere; Offshore team comprises of mostly young inexperienced college grads (including the leads and PMs) so often you end up in solving problems that could have been resolved easily there 4) High attrition rate - both onsite and offshore 5) Irrespective of the role, everyone invariably does sales

    Pros

    Steep learning curve as they say. You can work on never ending exciting cutting edge technology, analytics projects

    Cons

    They push you into deep waters and let you figure out how to swim or drown The analytics and strategy they have used even to hire right of college students who have student loans and who are hungry to prove themselves says a lot. Very unstructured, very unprofessional management right from the CEO himself. Forget about work life balance! Your life expectancy will come down by 1 year if you work here for a month. Not for people with a family. Not biweekly or bimonthly salary but monthly salary (US). No 401k match Costly healthcare

    Pros

    1. Steep learning curve. You will work with at least 3-4 different platforms within the first year. 2. Opportunity to work with fortune 500 companies. 3. Direct client interaction is possible within 3-4 months of joining. If you are lucky, you might even get to drive some of the calls.

    Cons

    1. Working hours are undefined. Some teams start work at 9AM and finish by 12AM while others finish by 5PM. 2. I did not have any issues with the pay. However, my peers constantly complained about the same. 3. Deadlines can be unrealistic. Again, this depends upon your team.

    A mixed bag.. lot of positives though..

    Pros

    * Steep learning curve * Open access to people at all levels * Presence of a core belief system * The better you deliver, the more the work/responsibility that comes your way * Multiple opportunities to fail/succeed * Opportunity to work with clients sooner than in most companies

    Cons

    * Not enough "experts", which to an extent lies in contrast to their belief system as well - but this potentially impacts the results delivered to clients * Risk of potentially burning out the high-performing employees by exerting too much pressure on them * Chaos in the upper-level management
