    Pros

    Job security, average salary.good canteen facility.

    Cons

    No onsite opportunity, less than market pay scale , big hierarchy and politics in promotion, people working in individual contributor / technical profiles are subservient to those working in functional area though its the technical staff who come up with design and technologies. They stopped internal employee engagement survey in India after very poor show in fear of getting exposed. Also outdated technologies in most BUs.. Attrition rate is high among new joiners .Few good senior people also left.
