Bad Company to start your career,very misleading job description

Associate System Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

Pros1.Good exposure to different technologies and lot of work experience in a short time.
2.Pays high to people who join the company after a few years of experience.
3.Night Cab facility

Cons1.Rude Managers , show total disrespect for employees.
2.Managers promise a lot of stuff but dont do what they say.
3.Lot of work and lot of work pressure.
4.Very bad compensation to people who join as ELTP's with very less growth Chances.
5.Loyalty to your manager would get you a good rating and not the quality of your work..
6.Make you do more documentation(clerical work) rather than software engineering work.
7.They make you pay for the team outings ( thats cheap !)
8.Treat freshers as school kids , give you assignments and you have written tests(Even after 3 years into the job !!)
9.Absolutely no work life balance.
10.They make you stay late and dont pay for that.Only few of the shifts are approved and the rest are rejected.You manager will show you his teeth and say budget constraint..And if you dont want to work late .. they say you are not cooperative and screw your ratings
11.Flexible working hours means --- you can be called for work any time any where --- as per their convienence.
12.They give more importance to their business than your aspirations.
13.Zero benifits.
14.Managers come up with twisted policies like you cant order food if you stay late and take cab.

Advice to Senior Management1.Please stick to what you say. Do not give misleading promises.
2.Stop hiring managers who know nothing other than shouting at people , assigning work and bossing over.
3.Please hire managers with technical background who do their work instead of distributing their work amongst the teams
4.Very bad leadership

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
