    Pros

    Free Food, Cab Service, In-office Gym and cab service. People stick around mostly due to the high salary

    Cons

    Extremely bad if you are looking for technical challanges. Also upper management in India is filled with politics. If you are not in politics you won't grow. Off late people have start leaving despite the high salary because good people don't stand dirty politics. Hence the leftovers would create an even dirty environment in India for sure. Very little scope to move across teams/projects

    Advice to Management

    Need a complete change of the upper management

    Pros

    pay as per performance and talent. If you have talent and time, they are ready to pay anything. Even 200-300% more than the industry standard. Nice work culture. Various Technologies, Realtime work experience. Flexible timings. Annual Gifits, Team Outings.

    Cons

    Poor Work Life balance. Should be always on toes with the production issues. Weekends monitoring/presence is required.

    Advice to Management

    Better take care of average performers.
