    Pros

    -I good some very good opportunities here
    -you get to work on new technologies/protocols time and again
    -bi-annual bonus payout. It is a part of our salary itself but feels good when u get more salary

    Cons

    -at times the work-life balance gets distorted
    -for some projectes...people are asked to stretch much more than what we are asked to fill up in the timesheets

    Some estimates for work are unrealistic. Due to this more burden is put on the engineers.

    Current Employee - Engineering Project Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Pros

    Good work culture, no dress code, reasonable HR policies, compensation is industry average for telecom.
    Extremely niche work in telecom. Quality of work depends drastically on your project. On-site opportunities are there but not too many. Expect 1 onsite in 2-3 years.

    Cons

    Compensation needs a revision to attract more talented fresh stream.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps time to diversify
