    Pros

    certification vouchers if you are in cisco TAC onsite opportunities are ample Even with office politics, appraisal is better than most organizations.

    Cons

    inefficient middle and senior management office politics in promotions no certification reimbursement policies for most of the organization

    Advice to Management

    Try venturing in banking and other sectors as well rather than too much concentration on Telecom alone. Make company more employee-centric
