Stressful

Stressful with lots and lots of bureaucracy and politics at every level. Quality of work is not so good in India. Mostly restricted to the UI development.

Okay to Work

Big company, lots of people - and this is a problem. People are not assigned teams per their skill-set or capability. Also sometimes people are not hired in the right group or division within the company - this creates mismatch in expectations and overall job dissatisfaction.

Pros

Work benefits, chance to participate in global events, make good impact

Cons

A lot depends on the team in which one is place, hence a lot of luck factor. Not all teams are good.
