    Pros

    The only thing I think of is that training at Persistent University is very good

    Cons

    1) Glorified body shoppers
    2) HR people mistreat contractors very extremely (not sure about their employees)
    3) Always looking for opportunity to replace their US workers with much cheaper Indian counterparts
    4) Incredibly poor and unethical management system

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!

    Pros

    I cannot think of any...

    Cons

    Decisions are made in India without regard to US differences or culture. Top-down driven (it is an affront to challenge managers). Focused on profit margin (not people).

    Advice to Management

    Need to adjust to US cultures and norms - cannot expect everyone to work like a drone who does not question the commands of superiors.
