    Pros

    Great opportunities as a fresher, better onsite opportunities, chances of getting fast promotions if you perform better.

    Cons

    It's human nature that you will never satisfy with your current salary. I guess it's everywhere. Senior leadership needs revival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seniority is not the only factor to handle big accounts.
