    Pros

    8 hour job. You can gain knowledge about different industries.

    You can feel good if you are hired in research. If in DC then no one will hire you. Its a data entry job.

    A lot to learn. Supportive team members. Food there is very good and most of all they are always ready to help you out with the issues.

    There is no as such challenge regarding the work schedule but the salary is not that much high. Transport facility is not good.

    Advice to Management

    You guys should enhance the salary a bit, its really very low for the entry level designations. And also work a little bit more on the administration part.
