Pros

Brilliant colleagues, flexibility, robust development environment

Cons

For freshers, too many dependencies on other people/teams and nobody has got time to resolve them. You gotta fend for yourself, which can be considered as a pro in itself.

    Pros

    - Smart people, you will be surprised the time and effort the company invests in finding people
    - Decent pay, average of the industry set of competitors, could be better
    - Work smart, hard and long. As Jeff says, 2 of the 3 won't work :-)
    - Strong sense of accomplishment when work is done

    Cons

    - Too exhausting at times
    - Management may not be transparent always
    - Some managers would qualify politicians (really). Stay away from them and just exchange smiles, nothing more
    - Recognition. There are few people waiting to shoot using your hardworking. Wonder how they got hired!

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the great people. Figure out how to really use peer feedback to weed out the political ones and your will have the best place to work in Bangalore. You are close already.

    Full of intelligent people and good pay.

    Cons

    I felt it was a little arrogant like "oh we are amazon and we are the best and better than everybody else"
