    Pros

    Opportunity to work on interesting products and features within the company. There is no dearth of good work opportunities.

    Cons

    The work pressure in the company is very high - not just for this role, but for all roles. Everyone seems to be overworked. As a result of this, there is no work life balance. This is definitely not the company where people can work for a long period of time. Eventually, everyone burns out and looks for better jobs elsewhere.
    Moreover, there is no recognition of employees. Even after delivering stuff, there is hardly any feeling of achievement because it is not attributed to employees and they are not recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please create means that can help improve the recognition of employees. Build awards based on team achievements, individual achievements, etc. A small pat on the back goes a long way and sometimes it far surpasses the monetary incentives.
    Secondly, please do not create unnecessary work pressures, try to improve work-life balance among employees. A lot of work pressure seems to be unnecessary. Things like yearly planning, their reviews, reporting, etc take up more than usual time. It is important for senior management to have visibility into what is going on, but at some point, trust your employees to take the right decisions rather than controlling everything.
