    I worked at Persistent Systems (India) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are really good to work with.

    Cons

    In Persistent US, there is no job security even for full time employees. As long as you are in a client project and billable you are safe. The resource allocation team doesn't even try to find you a project matching your skillset.

    Pros

    Broad exposure to interesting technologies; good vendor ecosystem (for now)

    Cons

    Exclusive cliques; lightweight, figurehead managers; lack of understanding of acceptable social norms; questionable ethics

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to act non-discriminatory, go private, and just go all-in as Indian firm (no more feeling guilty for not asking if employees would rather something other than Indian cuisine or speaking non-English)
