    Pros

    Salary is the main reason to work for. There is also scope of exposure as a safety manager.

    Cons

    For new employees the company doesnot provide any help for the family visa medical etc. Driving license is important and company doesnot provide any help to get this things done.

    Advice to Management

    For new employees management should have someone to take care of initial settling down of employee as it is difficult for the employee to work efficiently and come back home and then again face hardship for settlement.
