Great place to learn, not so great to grow
Consultant, Data & Analytics (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – December 28, 2018
Infosys is huge! As you may already know, its an Indian firm but looking to grow pretty aggressively and hire North Americans in order to navigate upstream in the consulting industry. That, of course, means a huge cultural shift in mindset and values, something that does not come without occasional misunderstandings.
I spent 4+ years with Infosys and was rotated through several clients, some small and some large. The range of projects was rewarding, as well as the opportunity to take on different roles. Infosys is also huge on training ad will make reasonable efforts to upskill its employees. However, as with all consulting firms, there is always the chance of "forcing" a fit, which can be a bit dangerous for both clients and employees, as well as carry a degree of reputational risk for the firm.
All in all, a good place to work. I do believe it has its work cut out to navigate upstream in the consulting value chain to better compete with the Accentures, McKinseys and Deloittes, especially as these firms can more easily build up their own IT implementation services, as well as enjoy their hard-fought status as top-tier consultancies with regards to strategy.
Good training and employee development
Limited room for growth and advancement
