    Pros

    Good, challenging work environment. People who mentored me were very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot from them.

    We can't work in the projects we like. We should work in the project which is allotted to us though it is not interesting.

    Can give option for the employees to choose the project in which they want to work. The base salary can be increased for entry level engineers.
