    Pros

    > Good business model for global operations, and some strategic/lucky investments in the past 75 years have paid off well

    Cons

    > Cheap place - these guys call you for an in-person interview to Bangalore, and don't even reimburse the ticket. Pathetic HR won't respond to mails

    > They call an AVP/top-consulting, IIT and IIM grad with 13 years of industry-wide experience, and ask to be a project manager, 5 levels below the India IT head, who is a VP, and then when questioned on the move, in complete irony, ask what's the big deal in a designation. Then why create so many levels when you are interviewing to have someone report to the VP - yet another hierarchical officious organization fit for 40+ people to sit and twiddle thumbs

    > Bad offshoring plans in India - most MNCs that setup shop in India seem to send their worst bureaucratic and ancient feudal-minded people, that believe we still in a colonial age and can get work done by cracking a whip

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The change is already setting in - in a few years, you'd have learnt nothing, hardly valued the good employees, and brought in no fresh talent - and when Iron Mountain finally fires you, I hope you'll see the point, albeit too late

    Stop micro management and tracking people on their seat and through messengers
    Bring the attitude of big IT giant
    Start providing work from home and flexibility to employee
    Provide quality work to employee
    Stop being dependent on people at onsite

    It seems to me to be a decent place to work if you want to keep work-life balance. Salary is above average and the work content can be fairly good.

    This is not the place for high flier, ambitious people. The management control can become frustrating at times. It is even boring at times.
