    Pros

    Great Company to work if you know what is the career path that you would like to take, either technical or management.

    Cons

    Getting work done one needs patience. Middle managers as usual are the key responsible folks as neither the senior management nor the leads own the deliveries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the Organizational Process is emphasized with more vigor and with due diligence, the growth of the organization would become faster.
