    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - One of the best cafeteria food you can get
    - Heard the cab facility is good although I never opted for it
    - Good people to work with

    Cons

    - Documentation team is seen as a liability
    - Punching bag for different groups
    - Too many releases in a year which obviously affects quality of work
    - Minimal support from engineering in technical documentation. They need documentation when they are not able to fix something otherwise the team is not respected.
    - Pathetic salary increase although huge increase in work
    - NO rewards and recognition of good work or the effort put in getting things done.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of good employees.

    Good facilities-Facilities are really good like cab, food, internet, books and all, Working environment is good. Awesome culture.

    Cons
