    Pros

    Nice people, good culture. People are approachable at all levels. Gives good exposure and experience and has a good reputation in the market.

    Cons

    Muddled strategy, the company does not know what it wants to be when it grows up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people better, and give the HR function a makeover. In today's competitive environment, you need to work to retain the best people and not be smug/complacent about it. People are not indispensable, but they are not commodities either.

    Pros

    management philosophy is extremely good.
    good people to work with.

    Cons

    worklife balance: the pressure is so high everytime that you wont get time for anything apart from your work. worklife balance is a myth. top management is least bothered about the same. i have not seen a top down pressure from management to improve upon the same.
    Too much of decentralization and autonomy: at times you will feel that one business unit is so much into itself that they wont talk to each other.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary
    Strong Market Present
    Growing Company - Supported by a strong R&D strategy.
    Good Benefits - Reduced cost of medication for employees.

    Cons

    Human Resource Policies - The policies around salary increases and promotions are restrictive, and do not give managers the ability to reward valuable employees. The company faces challenges with retaining valuable employees do to these policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would challenge the management to review and implement new policies that support and empower their employees.
