    Pros

    You get your space to do what needs to be done.

    Cons

    Pay could be better.
    Health insurance is too expensive and crappy.
    Facilities are old, dark and dingy. There is not even a lounge to take a private phone call or simply to enjoy your break.
    You are expected to be available even during off hours and sometimes even during your time off and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees and facilities in the US rather than investing capital in offshoring. Loyalty pays off in the longer term in quality, satisfaction rate and lower turnover rate.
