    Pros

    You are your own boss at times, & you have a nice easy days works but not productive so you can start to tune out & do the job on auto pilot.

    Cons

    Little understanding of where they want to go & have fallen off the pace of cutting edge tech & need to get a grip. Looks like they are stuck in the stone ages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop try to shoot to the stars without putting in the hard graft & hard work to get there. Look like they are just trying to jump on the bandwagon of SAAS & IAAS.

    so many hierarchy levels that makes decision process very slow. top people dont actually grasp the whole pictures , so they cant help to decide the strategy!!
    too big so there are many no-added-value tasks to proceed inside!

    Pros

    When you are on a client facing project and your are performing well, they are a great company to work for. The project are fun and the non-management people are great to work with on any project.

    Cons

    They will pay you for every hour worked as long as it is not more than 40 hours a week. If you are a contractor for them, then you get paid for every hour worked. This was a failed management trick to save money and screw the employee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your valued employees in all areas of the business like you do you contractors.

    Pros

    Flexible, ok type work environment, unlike other MNC's did not see any layoff even if you are on bench for long time,Brand name, attractive salary package for lateral hiring

    Cons

    went from bad to worse when I joined...Full of politics ,incompetent mid level managers, not much projects as per database side, even getting a project of 1-2 FT resource is a great achievement for them..can you believe this. .....lucky if you get project matching your skill or else they may push you to some other project which is not part of your skillset..good only for boot lickers...From 3000 employess..it has reduced to 2100..in 3 years....Lot of management changes both in India GDC and in international business....very few onsites...only for 2-3 weeks...no career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at international level open your eyes/ears ..Don't rate india GDC only as revenue center...need to invest and give direction to India GDC management...else this company wont grow if you are looking for long term profits..

    Pros

    Varied experiences, something new every day. With the wide range of customers you could find yourself working on a large base of technology both new and old.

    Cons

    Low Compensation, Quick to change staffing levels as customer base was not solid. There wasn't much communication on what the company was doing except communication with your direct supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover
