    Pros

    More responsibility is given based on ones interest, otherwise you were not considered. Basically if you are proactive then you are projected properly and lots of room to grow.

    Cons

    Not everyone can be proactive, if you are not you will not be given enough importance to grow. Which is very bad if one is not proactive. More driven by customers which should not be the criteria, rather have a strong product and attract the customers...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please update standards of salaries as per the market.

    Pros

    Employment is stable, since their products are usually large contracts to other big companies. Work environment is not as competitive as other companies, everyone is friendly and mature. Managers are also understanding and lets you get t he work done. Not a lot of office politics, everyone is about getting a product out.

    Cons

    If you like a very competitive and high paying environment, then you should look for work in companies similar to Apple. The pay isn't as high as other companies because they are more relaxed.
