    Pros

    Decent salary, not much micro management, flexible work hours

    Cons

    Promotions and perks only for ass kissers not performers and they say it is performance oriented culture

    Managers have private conversations with some people in the team and only they get rewarded others no matter how hard they work are not allowed to come up

    No amount of hard work and proof is enough for you to justify your hike and promotion i did some very spectacular tasks still got "Meets Expectations"

    Overtly greedy management that wants to extract as much as possible from workers but not reward them appropriately

    Products are shelved all of a sudden without proper reasoning

    No way for engineers to give feedback on management it is a pure one way approach

    No one on one meetings or skip level meetings or any other way of feedback, Management believes they are the very best and do not need feedback

    Once you raise your voice against anything instead of listening you are asked to give up or pay up

    Not a single day passes off without work and in-spite of so much productivity appraisals are horrible

    Most of the projects you will be over worked

    HR is a non-existent entity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have proper feedback mechanism and reward true performers
