    Good work life balance, one can get home at a decent time, spend time with family and kids, Work is technology driven, if you get your numbers, you make the cut, no nonsence..

    Tends to be heavily reliant on US based market, not much by way of investment in product development as such, tend to be more sales and services driven.. Sr management tends to micro manage.. which leads to trust issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more hands on, understand what employees are looking for..
