    Pros

    Work From Home, good salary, good for freshers to learn

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs, recently hyd R&D team is completely lay-offed,
    You will be hired by luck not by your talent (No uniformity in recruitment).
    No HR, manager is everything, need to maintain good relations with him otherwise , irrespective of how much you work hikes and promotions are gone
    Most of the work is maintenance of existing products.
    Skills will be eroded after working here for some time
