    I worked at Virtusa full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    01. Compensation is 10%-20% better than most big named offshore based consulting companies.
    02. If you are willing to grow, and you have the capabilities in general you can go up the ladder without issues [Deteriorating]
    03. Mostly you have access to upper level management if required [Deteriorating]
    04. Very good company for the first time US/UK assignees
    05. Level of transparency and good working culture, integrity [Deteriorating]
    06. Very rarely walk away from a customer delivery issue regardless the contractual commitment or financial benefits

    Cons

    01. Company is losing its core values and purpose to exist and becoming just another IT commodity company
    02. People focus is going down rapidly. The HR division is nothing but just to run payrolls. Extremely poor competent HR team from top to bottom. They are just coordinator team of the Delivery Organization.
    03. Wrong hires at upper level bring their own corrupted values and toxic the excellent culture we used to have 10-15 years ago.
    04. Increasing favoritism across all sections of the company from operation to delivery.
    05. Very less focus on people development compare to its past. People becoming a commodity for the company and not the greatest assert what used to be

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on people and people development
    01. Get rid-off the current incompetent HR team.
    02. A US based company should have a decent % of US based HR managers. Unfortunately currently almost all key people related positions are run by non US employees.

    Company deceives your payout. When they hire they say they are giving more than your current salary but puts 10% of your payout in Variable and never pays you full. This is cheating organization.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your payout to employees. This is bold cheating in the market.
