    Oppurtunities to work in various domains

    Cons

    Off late..Nasty midille level Management with no skill set of Managing. Sulking HR persons with no knowledge or care about the way they have to do their job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appoint experienced HR or Get your HR trained dealing with Associate concerns than to tiptoe Project Managers who usually are much much seniors than HR's.
    Get Middle level Managers trained in Concepts of Management and appoint those who are qualified.
    Time to go back to Consulting services from Body shopping

    Pros

    Better opportunities for associates from offshore.
    A lot of room to learn.
    Work culture depends on the project.
    Upper management is proficient in getting new businesses.

    Cons

    Promotions will be totally dependent more on your relationship than on your performance. You should be a "Yes" master to your supervisors.
    Company values its other assets more rather than employees.
    Uncertainty on the tenure of your role in the project.
    Even though the pay is at par with the market, take home will be less. Don't know how!
