    Pros

    Good Start up for Freshers

    Cons

    Projects are too good in this company, but dont expect any promotions in 2 3 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR people are too smart in this organization, Don't differentiate lateral joynee and Campus joynee.
    Both are giving 100 % to organization,
    Campus freshar joynee salary - 10.000 for first 6 month, after that 3 lac
    Latera joynee - 1.2 lac ( same salary for two years)
    i dont understand, if lateral joynee want to touch 5 lac count , then he had to spend 6 years in his current oregenization.
