    Pros

    Excellent work culture if you are working in a horizontal. Excellent scope for growth. Work life balance difficult considering work location, but work is fun.

    Cons

    Growth in a vertical is difficult. Culture is not good and no scope to grow unless you have a godfather. Company policies are not very employee friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change policies to make them more employee friendly. Improve travel policies and compensation. Allow for growth of an individual.
