    I worked at Pointwest full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunity to travel
    - Challenging projects
    - More or less a right balance between corporate and casual
    - Evaluation is based on competency

    Cons

    - Be stuck with the same project for quite a long time
    - Career evaluation process isn't done on a regular basis
    - 3 years is too long to be contractually bound with the company, post training

    Advice to Management

    All good, except for that instance that I hoped that you listened to the survey done back in 2008 regarding people's choice of work location (prior to the Technohub move). Some people, including myself, got hassled with the relocation.

    I worked at Pointwest full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good for entry-level developers since they are offering bootcamp trainings. A lot of opportunities for career development. They also offer onsite opportunities. People are really nice and easy to work with. Very flexible work shifts for most of the teams.

    Cons

    Bond for the bootcamp training is kinda long-- 3 years. They offer low salary range. Has a very high attrition rate (usually people just wait for their bond to be over and then resigns) so the tendency is that there are only a handful of senior-level developers.
