A good company to work for
Senior Associate - Projects (Former Employee) –  Kolkata, Brussels & ZürichJuly 5, 2016
A good company to work for, especially if you are interested in global opportunities. Too much sales focused. So, if you are in a Manager or Senior Manager band, do expect to be immersed in a sea of proposals that you have to work on.
Pros
Good scope for learning, lot of onsite roles, senior management attentive to employee needs
Cons
Current middle management has many incompetent elements, it is losing its core values slowly due to the sheer size it has grown to

Day at my workplace
IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONApril 18, 2016
My day would start by greeting my fellow workers and followed by task assigned to me and completion. Hard work pays, management is very helpful but demanding, co-workers are really very helpful. Hardest part was offshore call late at night but later enjoyed it the most.
