    Pros

    Low risk of losing your job

    Flexible hours

    You don't necessarily need a Computer Science degree to get a job in software. (They accept math or other engineering degrees as well)

    Cons

    Your career goals may be disregarded

    Most employees are incompetent (and so can you!)

    Uncompensated overtime. There is a prevailing culture of working through lunch and working late hours frequently.

    Your job may be to sit in a chair and be billable to a client.

    Little diversity in the workplace. (90% of employees are Indian born)

    Advice to Management

    Management appears to be trying to fix the diversity problem by hiring local, however the practice of spreading out all of the local hires leaves everyone miserable.
