    Advice to Management

    Policies or contracts cannot be the ways to bind the employees. Employees should be bound by the company's culture and the care towards them. They should love to work for longer hours or longer period for the company and not be forced to do so. Value your employees and the employees will value you.

    Good platform for freshers and for onsite opportunities.

    Cons

    Unstable management, unfriendly HR policy regarding Travel, Visa, Project, Appraisal System and location.

    Most Managers have little technical and management skills, so they judge employees on the basis of communication more than technical skills. Inefficient Processes for innovation and automation.

    Advice to Management

    Work like you are part of team not like a boss of someone and misuse your position.
