    Don't keep high expectations

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany will offer good package while joining, good joining bonus and moving costs.
    Good company to start with, you will get good exposure. There are few long term projects if you get lucky you may get to stay at one location.

    ConsMay not keep all promises given during joining, get everything in writing.
    Lack of professionalism, main operations are at offshore so you will see some delays in process.
    100% Moving expenses for offshore resources is not covered. This is ridiculous policy.
