    Pros

    Very Good career Progression Paths.
    Resonably Good People to work with (Although depends on the account/vertical you work at)
    No dearth of opportunities.

    Not the smartest

    Please pass on some profits to employees (Programmers, Project Leads, Managers) too. They are the actual bread earners.

    Constantly seek feedback about the support functions. They can really be improved & made employee friendly
