    Pros

    Employee friendly, flexible environment, good benefits, Quick growth for right talented, world recognized brand.

    Cons

    No proper plan by Executive team in terms of employee's development perspective. Which resulted in many lay offs in the company recently. Employees who has greater hopes in the organization have suddenly shocked with the decision of organizational restructuring and left the company.

    Company has to plan the organization in such a way employees grow with the company as it grows.
