    Pros

    Vacation starting off is great1 We get 15 days plus 2 additional personal days. Competitive pay. Staff Aug roles work very typical industry hours (so work life balance is a plus). Company culture is fun! I still hang out with those I trained with and everyone on my account is incredibly active. The opportunity to get involved is immediate if you reach out to people.

    Cons

    Getting feedback on a Staff Aug project is tough since your reviewer hardly knows your work. Meeting revenue managed KPIs in a staff aug role is tough. You can only get promoted during two time periods per year (end of year and mid year).

    Pros

    Training:- Great Learning material on their website. Web sessions, Books, Classroom etc. This is a major plus point.
    Work Life Balance:- Will depend on the account/practice you work for. If you are in a client facing role with an offshore team, you will really have to spend the extra hours to deliver. If you are in a client facing role in a staff aug position, the work load may not be as much.

    Cons

    Personal Growth:- There are many opportunities across NA region. But again, grabbing these opportunities is highly dependent on your current manager and account. You may not be moved to a better opportunity if they don't find your replacement especially when you are on a billable slot. Every manger/account will first consider their own account's priority and will only move you out if there is a better replacement or if you are not doing well enough to stay there. If you are a really smart person in such a slot - then you are doomed to spend your entire career in that same account. The only option to take your career forward is to move out of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not let any associate spend over two years in the same account.

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation is good.

    Cons

    Horrible Middle Management. Most of the PMPs have no clue about Project Management -they are not aware of basic SDLC. A complete mess. No growth opportunities. Most of the managers are busy taking credit for the work done by their team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the middle level incompetent managers.
