    Pros

    8 hour job. You can gain knowledge about different industries.

    Cons

    You can feel good if you are hired in research. If in DC then no one will hire you. Its a data entry job.

    Pros

    A lot to learn. Supportive team members. Food there is very good and most of all they are always ready to help you out with the issues.

    Cons

    There is no as such challenge regarding the work schedule but the salary is not that much high. Transport facility is not good.

    Advice to Management

    You guys should enhance the salary a bit, its really very low for the entry level designations. And also work a little bit more on the administration part.

    Pros

    Well established company within its sector. Very good work-life balance, with plenty of time off. Currently beating its competitors, and positive outlook for the near future.

    Cons

    I was hired as an intern post graduation, with a optimistic opportunity to join the company full time if I performed. Instead, the position was full before I even arrived at the office. In addition, work comes second to most of the employees, with many people choosing to take large amounts of the day doing pretty much nothing. In addition, many of the US offices are filled with old, dead-ended employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the large amount of uninterested employees filling up the offices at entry level jobs, and jumpstart the company by making real progression through the ranks possible.
