    Pros

    Casual attitude where we can relax and focus of work, can address issues openly with managers and HR, free breakfast and snacks. Good growth opportunities as hard work is recognized and compensated.

    Cons

    Quality of the food in hyderabad office is poor, several times there were bugs found in the food and people fall sick occasionally.
    Professionalism is less, most people don't know how to behave in a workplace and can get annoying over time.
    Hyderabad top management is not very proactive, seems lazy and barely tries to connect to people.
    NO employee lounge, cannot relax anywhere.
    Less coffee machines, so need to wait all the time.
    quality of chairs is bad, overtime can get severe back aches'
    No private vendors in cafeterias, just lunch is provided. Snacks can be bought only in day time, for night shift there isn't any.
    Compensation is less when compared to other companies.
    Leadership in india is clueless, looks through rose tinted glasses.
    No perks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least, hear the issues from employees from ground level. Do a proper survey to check compensation in other companies.Please dont get lazy, inspire people.
