    I have been working at Baker Hill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Challenging work with good team members. Leads (Dev and QA) are good and competitive and coperative. Better managed teams. 2. Empathetic leads and managers. Can't waste time in office in chit chats but cant have much of leisure time as well. 3. Responsive IT, HR and admin. They seen working for employee benefits (just try to avoid their loud fights with each other). 4. Many of the US counterparts are good (and they accept offshoring) and work as mentor rather than frustrated clients. 5. Good recognition and rewards. But quantum of reward is too low. 6. Work Life Balance with calls ending maximum by 7 pm.

    Cons

    1. Air conditioning has no control. Sometimes its too hot and sometimes too cold. Dont have temperature controllers in office (even these days cars have it). 2. A very small breakout where employees can eat their lunches/dinners. 3. Dont have anything related to relxation, games, personal timeout. 4. NO TRAININGS are provided here. 5. No team activities, lunches and dinners this year, probably they are awaiting bail out package from Govt. 6. Company should provide cabs for late hours and weekend working along with allowances. 7. Since last 1.5 years, I have seen no progress in employee strength. In last 1.5 years cant felt presence of topnotch, NEVER meets any employee (may be we are low society people) and remains in the room only , flexible work timings (4-5 hours) and we are asked to complete 9 hours compliance. 8. Low pay scale and no flexi benefits. 9. More meaningful visits must happen from US rather few coming just for Taj and stay in hotel, atleast it gives them idea about struggle we go through in absence of no SME here.
