    A nice environment with a lot of learning opportunities, but dissatisfying when it comes to career growth.

    I worked at Packt Publishing

    Pros

    1) Flexibility in working hours
    2) Management supportive on leaves and work from home facility
    3) No dress code – dress in the attire you are comfortable
    4) A lot of learning opportunities if you join as a fresher

    Cons

    1) Salary and other benefits are not par available in market
    2) There is no growth in career after a certain time – you become stagnant
    3) The promotion process is not clear and at times smacks of favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) The flexibility in working environment is good, but at times too much freedom hampers seriousness in work culture.
    2) If management cannot give a handsome salary, they can at least compensate by providing benefits such as medical cover, travel bills, and so on to all of the employees without waiting for them to complete certain period in Packt.
    3) The promotion process should be fair. The candidate who doesn't get selected for a coveted post should be given reasons as to what he/she didn't have compared to the one got selected.
