    Good company to be associated with

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    ProsGreat place if you want to build your technology strengths
    They respect and trust people and freedom with responsibility
    If you starting career as a fresher, you will learn/earn a lot. If you are a lateral, expectations are high and you have to be technically strong to make a difference
    AC buses

    ConsLess onsite opportunities
    If you are at client site/onsite, you can demand your team to work the way you want. Poor team members.
    Hikes can be better.
    The appraisal rating scales are difficult to understand.
