    Pros

    good product, flexible working schedule, a lot of very good people to work with. teams are very experienced. nice location and a lot of resturants nearby.

    Cons

    sometimes asked to work in Saturdays. slow career growth and some level of bad politics. some products with very old technology, so if are looking for latest and popular technology in the industry, wrong place.

    Pros

    Trying to live upto it's name, good work-life balance(at least it has an onsite gym).

    Cons

    Contractors are severely ill-treated. Management should be trained on how to deal with feedback and retention of valuable resources. A lot of management practices and styles are very negative thus creating a very negative environment affecting employee motivation, performance and overall loyalty. No transparency at all when it comes to providing feedback on job performance, very superficial!

    Advice to Management

    Please do away with managers that are simply not competent, have no experience whatsoever training and mentoring team members and are there to just exercise control. Treat contractors fairly and provide valid reasons for any kind of employment action.
