    Pros

    Package, if you want it - go for it

    Cons

    1. They will tell you it's a development role while interviewing, while once you are inside they will give you production support
    2. They will make you work in shift, while avoiding calling it shift job
    3. They call it a captive and CoE, while the senior management thinks of it as a support center
    4. Main work in US, only support functions are coming to India
    5. Work - Life balance - Non-Existent
    6. Indian HR is under the US manager. They have no voice
    7. Very confused about if they are a product organization or a service organization
    8. Employee satisfaction - NIL
    9. Employee support - NIL
    10. Employee care - NIL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making people think you are a development center and duping people to join it. Instead share the actual work you do, so that people are not blinded by the package only.
    Tell them that you don't believe in work-life balance and it will make future employees chose you wisely.
