    Pros

    A lot of talented people work/ have worked for the company. The work environment is great and the people I work with are awesome.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Staff turnover is high which is to be expected in this industry however management are doing nothing to retain the talent that they have. Moral is low and it appears nobody really knows where they stand. Management and policies have changed so much that I not sure if the company will survive.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and appreciate your staff.

    Pros

    Great exposure, greater responsibilities and hence learning, great peer group, outstanding work life balance, above average pay for initial years

    Cons

    senior management lacks vision and direction..bunch of quickly promoted personnel not mature enough to run india operations..discrimination in promotions based on geography (india employee in us/uk based client project will be promoted above peer working out of india office for india client project)

    Advice to Management

    1. provide better career guidance and convey company's sense of direction
    2. when bringing changes, prove relevance to all service lines
    3. address promotions as incentive for good work and not a tool to retain disgruntled employees

    Pros

    1 .Flexi Timing
    2. Young and dynamic work force

    Cons

    1.There is no concept of work life balance in the organisation- its either no work or work till 3 am and on weekends kind of situation
    2. Company has no idea where its headed towards, we take up anything and everything that comes our way even if we don't have resources or expertise to complete the task. The result- point 1 for resources involved and then usually projects don't go beyond the POC stage and the effort goes in waste
    3. Junior resources have no say or aren't kept in consideration for any policy change in the company. No clear growth structure, no encouragement to venture out of their respective BUs to discover their interest areas and don't expect any benefits or respect if you are working at anything junior then a business analyst level. They say they have a very flat hierarchy but that is just on paper and whatever exists, only exists at the senior management level.

    Advice to Management

    There are alot of good things that get proposed every 6 months but I haven't seen anything concrete happening. Also you need to look beyond the senior management. Also if you don't realize that you have an opportunity to groom your junior resources to take up bigger roles and responsibilities and treat them with respect, soon enough you will be back to the attrition rate you were looking at last financial year.

    Pros

    The flexibility you have, interaction with others culture was amazing

    Cons

    Management just awful. Not posibility for GA to growth within the company

    Advice to Management

    New management needs transparency and balance. A lot of promises and nothing happen, also keep in mind you need to value your loyal employees and GA also deserves respect like others

    Pros

    Compensation...especially for the analytics & consulting teams but not for others..

    Cons

    No standard procedures for employee appraisal/promotion/bonus disbursement, no growth, no new projects coming in....already a lot of attrition from a long period of time but no efforts by top management to check it, all in all not worth a try even

    Advice to Management

    please get your act together and make the employees believe in your vision by tangible actions instead of just words....
