    Pros

    Sorry I can't post any pros.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work with . You have to maintain the attitude that Boss is always right. they will not give you good hike contrary to what is expected from product based companies. They will treat you as a naive even if you deliver features after features without deviating any commitment date. if you don't have any other offer you may continue there for sometime.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk. Don't promise/tell the things which you can't provide. Value your employees who work hard.

    Work load is light. Usually don't need over-time working. The relationship between colleague are good. And if you have some urgent things to be handled, manager will be very considerable.

    Improve professional Environment apart from being personal with the Employee.

    Pros

    If any body leaving the Organisation and he has more leaves to Encash then he will be Benifical and get more values for leaves

    Cons

    The Monthly salary is calculated based on No of working days in the Month. So if you get updaid leaves then you loss more salary as per day salary will not include the the weekends and official holidays,

    Advice to Management

    Need to regularise the Salary system. The Company should think more about the ppl to stay in the organisation rather than providing troubles to think on remuneration. Resource should be free from his mind regarding the money related issue to work and research freely.
