    Pros

    - Good co -workers
    - Go location.
    (Filing in to hit the 20 word minimum)

    Cons

    - NON existent HR.
    - Don't get trapped by the whole "Green card " thing. It's bonded labor with no pay, here.
    - Work on bugs.
    - No career development.
    - Poor pay.
    - Bad bonuses. (almost non existent)
    - Promotion = more bugs, no pay. You either get a raise or a title change, dare you ask for both !
    - Mandatory vacation. This gets deducted from the vacation time that you have accrued.
    -Useless upper management. "We just like to play on our blackberries and have unproductive meetings."
    -Poor cross team communication.

    Advice to Management

    Treat us with respect lest don't be so shocked with the mass exodus of engineers leaving.
