1) Has a great reputation as a global leader in off shoring.
2) You gain skills and knowledge in areas you are not exposed to at other organizations including but not limited to managing offshore team, kmmi and cmmi compliance, knowledge management, cultural sensitivity, etc.
3) All employees are nice and satisfied with their job. No one leaves due to problems with the company.
4) Internal certifications. Shows your path to promotion, keeps you abreast in technology and processes.
5) Young atmosphere. Lots of highly trained and qualified young professionals work for infosys, not your old-school conservative workplace with 50-somethings roaming around, they are appropriately placed behind the scenes dealing with the higher stakes issues such as engagement management, lead generation, client relations, etc.
1) Large male to female and Indian to all-other-background imbalance. You must realize that you are working for an Indian company wherever you may be and work functions will be influenced accordingly.
2) Slow to promote employees.
3) No 401-k matching or tuition reimbursement program (in America).
4) Internal certifications. Although they are a plus while in the company, they have little meaning outside the company and wished external-industry certifications could be substituted.
5) Most correspondences have two messages. One for the Indian employees and the other
Advice to Management
(from an American point of view) If possible take into consideration the wants of the freshers / new hires. You have a great company that we want to work for, but if senior management doesn't grant our requests, we'll try to find other places that will. For example some of the freshers joined Infosys because of the prospect of moving around the country working on multiple clients, working in multiple fields (IVS - BCM - Retail - Communication), working INTERNATIONALLY, essentially the lure of consulting. Making that idea in the head of your youngest employees a reality will help retain said employees and benefit the company as they are more widely experienced.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Infosys (Bridgewater, NJ (US)) in March 2012.
Group interview 2:1. Mostly asked about my QA background and how I would solve problems posed during interview. For example, there are no Business Requirements, no specs, nothing. How would you create a test plan? 2. An object has no properties, how would you verify that the object behaves as expected in an automated test? 3. asked about my thoughts on Descriptive Programming (QTP).
As you can tell from the questions posed it sounds like they are interested in your thought process and how to derive an answer. To my surprise (or maybe not surprise) Infosys personnel (or their culture) wants a definitive approach or answer. They seem to think there is one best way to solve problems. An applicant's creative approach is not desired. For example (I'm making this up), how do you get to page 100 in a 200 page book? My answer, depends on whether the book front or back is facing you. If the back is facing you, then you flip from page 200 to page 100. Their answer. No, you flip from the front to page 100. I making this up, but you get the gist. Thinking outside the box is not appreciated.
Anyway I didn't get an offer.
