    I have been working at Virtusa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits, job security, and work-life balance are top of the list for most job seekers. Career growth and strong leadership matter too. Generational trends reveal different priorities. Career performance is paramount for Gen X workers. Company culture, growth potential, and work-life balance are important for Millennials/Gen Y. They also thrive at startups.

    Cons

    pros and cons. The pros and cons of something are its advantages and disadvantages, which you consider carefully so that you can make a sensible decision. They sat for hours debating the pros and cons of setting up their own firm

    Advice to Management

    future action, typically given by someone regarded as knowledgeable or authoritative.

    Pros

    This is a fantastic place to start your IT career. Access to a wide rage of technology and the pay isn't bad at all.

    Cons

    This is no place to call home. The company doesn't care about their employees at all and turn over is high.

    Advice to Management

    You are a IT contracting company. Your people are your product. Treat them better and stop playing game with working conditions and bounces.

    I have been working at Virtusa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's better than companies like TCS, Infosys in terms of pay scale.

    Cons

    the management is bad. no bonus payouts. every year they are delayed atleast by 6 months and employees are not given any arrears. they even split your annual hike in 2 parts and 1 is applicable from Oct and the other one from jan. Company is not meeting the targets has become a standard reason for not paying variable/bonus pay. A lot of favoritism among south Indians by south Indian managers.
    Company has a high attrition rate as company doesn't care to address concerns of employees.

    Advice to Management

    there are people apart from shareholders too

    Project based company. So you will get to learn various technologies.

    Cons

    There's a layoff going on. It's unstable after the acquiring Polaris. They would just lay off without notice.

    Advice to Management

    There's lot of VPs, Directors who does nothing. layoff them before you get to layoff people who actually do the work

    Pros

    Virtusa is a premier global business that has a tremendous capacity to drive business value for its customers as well as its employees. The leadership is very good and with the correct push will continue to grow.

    Cons

    There are a lot of internal processes that you need to follow to make things work. It is a steep learning curve for new employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build a culture of communication and focus. The mergers and acquisitions will continue to grow the company!
