    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for those candidates who wants to work but not getting good projects or opportunities to prove themselves as this is spoiling there career. Also make people work for the different technologies if they want to as before any project there is a training session to understand the projects and to cope up with the team and already going work.
