    Pros

    This is the place for one who seeks to learn new technologies, means you will get various options to update yourself.
    All who have more than 3yrs of experienced will get onshore opportunity. Work quality is really good.

    Cons

    Its on you to maintain work-life balance, you will get as much work as you want. If you are waiting to get some work in a team, you should not wait to get it. You have to continuously ask for it otherwise after some months you will see yourself in same situation. Don't look for any kind of increment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should continuously check that all the members in a team are getting any work or not. Otherwise they eventually get bored and leave.
