    Pros

    Good salary package; Good Work life balance for employees at lower salary grades

    Cons

    Unrealistic responsibilities on people managers; too much importance given to annual employee engagement survey, which is often misused by staff; lack of transparency & consistency in implementing some company policies such as Internal Job Posting, Work from Home, career progression to name a few. Very few promotions in past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Take some actions on few areas which I have highlighted where improvements are required to be a successful IT consultancy firm. Merely creating a new brand (Optum) is not enough. You have to have more customer focused approach. Promotions should be purely based on performance, which is somehow missing for Project Managers & above.
