    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Work from home option
    get to learn a lot of new things
    a very friendly and interactive environment

    Cons

    the only con I can think of is the take home salary, which is less compared to other companies. But they have other benefits like share purchase plan.
    You might get held up in the same project for a long long time

    poor management and lot of politics. no transparency in appraisals
