    Pros

    Compensation could be better but there is scope for growth. Working hours are great, and there is flexibility at work as far as management is concerned.

    Cons

    Benefits are not so appealing. You are allowed to apply to outside departments which enables a progress in career. There is pressure to sell for all levels of employees in the front end.

    Advice to Management

    Need a better standard of salary offered in order to retain hardworking employees.
