    Pros

    It is like a small town in itself where we meet different types of people with diverse communities.

    Cons

    One year waiting till you become a regular employee

    Advice to Management

    Should definitely take experience into consideration and give a chance to prove. Should give an opportunity for an emergency hire to be considered as a full time regular employee.
