    Pros

    Never misses on Salary and the compensation is generally up to the market standards

    Cons

    There is so much politics involved and employees are generally from any background in India and don't have good communication. Don't how they get their H-1B visas!!

    Advice to Management

    Segregate people based on their abilities and not the project you have just begged from the client and put anyone on those positions. Also, management folks can't speak good English what else do you expect from the people below.
