    Pros

    Better than most Indian technology consulting company. Open culture. You own your own growth. Helps develop you into an all round personality, as opposed to just a coder.

    Cons

    It's a consulting firm, not an engineering firm. People into hard code tech may not find it very stimulating.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees translate to better productivity.
