    Pros

    Very competitive internal teams - lots to learn from your peers. Pretty amiable environment internally - teams ready to help. Significant learning opportunities. Unlike many other software firms, Bangalore continues to be the hub from where major product R&D ownership and delivery comes from. Excellent PreSales leadership in India.

    Cons

    Very lean organization. Most departments struggle with bandwidth round the year. Investment in a region comes only if results are delivered ahead to indicate potential - something that is a big blow for regions like India. Being a US-centric company from Sales perspective - countries like India where the annual revenue opportunity is way smaller than what US or other regions deliver, resourcing or employee wages would always be on the lower side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in regions outside of US esp India. Treat Sales support teams also fairly like your core Sales organization - PreSales is pretty much being given step-child treatment. Bring in more people to bridge the uneven reporting structures - too many junior level positions in APJ region directly reporting into APJ head causing a lot of the suggestions/requests going unheard. PreSales compensation in India is way below what competition offers in this region - will not help attrition at all.
