    I worked at Headstrong full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent work environment, ample opportunity and learning environment

    As such there is no cons but they can improve on Earned Leave front and also open one center at other location in NCR like Gurgaon :-)

    Advice to Management

    They are managers, so they know all the things which can be implemented

    I worked at Headstrong full-time

    Pros

    They can give better hike only and only nothing else.

    Cons

    Don't confuse with Genpact name, all upper headstrong management already changed. And Just they purchase employee on the basis of salary, but if talk about project they make employee to sit on bench and start begging please allocate me on any project.. I left this company after 2 monthly only.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly provide project as soon you hire, otherwise that employee will not responsible for any technical gap. And hire only if u have any cleint approval otherwise don't wast time of employee after hiring.

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

    Pros

    -Nobody sticks here for more than 1 year, so if you stick, you’ll get promoted -If you want to see honest reviews, please go to page 2,3,4 etc. good reviews are posted by internal recruiters just to attract some talent - if this is the only offer you hold and are desperate, then only join

    Cons

    -You will loose all the good skills and talent you have acquired previously - you will compromise your communication skills as majority of the people here don’t know how to communicate - lack of good clients, the clients mostly use Genpact folks as contractors for getting the work which their direct employees refuse to do

    Advice to Management

    Please upskill yourself. Look at improving the workplace and not just your pockets
