    Pros

    Good for understanding MNC work culture and basic project ideas.

    Cons

    Extremely bad management. Management never consider your work ,they will consider how much you work only for "them" not company or project. Non supporting HR.Even HR never follows basic policies about employees.

    Please do the work for which company paying you big fat salary. If you can't work professional then at least try to be normal human who have brain to think "logically".

    Pros

    Probably Good only for Delivery Managers and above who makes good money and pass everything on to subordinates, majority without any Technical skills or Client management skills - but Yes remains safe always as all below band grade employees will be escape-goats so they enjoy

    Cons

    Nothing on new or upcoming technologies, just support , production support rojects nothing else, Sales people not capable to pitch in and get business, Sr. Leadership does not interact with mid or Jr Level, HR has no clue who is good or bad and how resource can be utilized for betterment instead of lay off. Just lay off every year nothing else no broad visiion

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand - Laying off is not solution - and If it is, why DMs and above/ Sales/ Engagement Managers are not getting laid off who are the actual cost to company and not adding any value. words of wisdom are the only thing they use, they do not understand or want to understand who can be groomed and who can not be,at least TOP Management should have control and review what betterment they brought to the table, the figures and MISs presented itself they do not know how to prepare all made by PM and Leads. Anyway all the best to your capabilities.
