    Pros

    Great place to work.
    Decent pace of growth.
    Pay is decent too.

    Cons

    Various regional offices often tend towards being competing with each other than working together which creates an atmosphere for politics and elbowing to become prevalent.

    Advice to Management

    Lets start with handful of things, achieve them, stabilize them and then start the next handful of things. Off late, the company has become playground for senior management to come in, start massive transformation initiatives and leave the company hanging mid-way.
