    Pros

    You get to interact with high profile executives with great achievements and work with experienced consultants. The overall environment of the company is also very conducive.

    Given their shift timings, work life balance takes a toss. Also, they do not have fixed career path like in other organisations, so the promotions don't come easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the management should try to understand the morale of employess and tries to reduce staff turnover. Good companies always tries to retain their employees and both employer and employee will benefit out of that
