    Pros

    best possible work life balance - more life less work
    decent amenities at office

    Cons

    lack of quality work
    poor senior mgt and even poorer vision of future
    no professional way of hiring, career planning or appraisals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i guess the very senior mgt are too intelligent to be given any advise. they are possibly the best in the market, its the middle/ mid-senior mgt in india which needs a complete overhaul.
