    very good.

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Bangalore

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould 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.

    OKAY Not Bad

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood Pay, Nice Bonus and Excellent Work

    ConsWork Life balance not good. Recognition is based on perception rather than perrformance

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease concentrate on recognition. Senior Management seldom knows what is happening at ground level. Rewards are based upon who talks rather who works.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
