    Pros

    Current employee of the company

    Cons

    Bad managers, no work life balance, extremely demotivating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul people managers, middle management to retain your people. Most of the people who are managers and seniors are in the company for a long time greater than 5 years and all are Indians with extremely bureaucratic mindset not suited for a tech company which hires in USA.

    Pros

    There are no Pros, as Company executives indulge in what can be called criminal behavior; most of the Company is full of Rejects from other companies

    Cons

    Company has no strength in it Executives who in turn are not open to recruiting Techies with knowledge, experience, skills in all newer IT Technlogies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company management should think of laying of widely flounting executives from India who are highy unethical in their conduct
