    Pros

    Company is one of the best at the moment, fun place to work and office culture is good. Vacation and leave plan is flexible and benefits are one of the good

    Cons

    compensation is average, work culture at customer location depends on the projects and it would not fit for all the people. Professional growth again rely on immediate supervisors and there is no much interaction with senior management.
