    Pros

    A big organization.To scale heights , you have to strive really hard and that is the best thing about this org.Best place to start with your career.

    Cons

    With its enormous size , it is always very difficult to get noticed.Before the information percolates to the 'downstream' , it would have gone through multiple filterings. So dont believe anything and everything what you hear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are working 'with' you not 'for' you.
    Organization & its value are not only measured by its net worth & profit margin , it is also measured on the attitude & morale of the employees who form a part of this organization.
