    Pros

    Stability , Perks and good colleagues

    Cons

    If you are interviewed for Risk Technology your career will be at mercy of your boss.
    In Risk Technology only the head decides the rating for all employees.
    Hectic work environment.
    Pathetic Senior management in Risk Technology.

    Don't hire just to show the heads.

    Pros

    Salaries are good, Office Culture one of the better ones, good flexibility of work including no in and out times etc.

    Cons

    Very aggressive organization, work is not as diversified as consultancies, low on travelling - so not good for people who look for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be a more meritocratic organization - neutral teams should be set up to gauge excellence at all levels so that rewards are less based on opinions and perceptions of a few people alone.
