    Pros

    I don't think there is any pros just writing to fill the space. Pathetic salaries, Horrible senior management, worst possible HR policies.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance, management will ensure you don't have life after work. Salaries are horrible with just 5% increase in salaries in 2013-14. Minimum 12 hours working if you are at Head Office. Senior management is full of accountants who don't know basics of management. If you are MBA dare not join this company as accountants will be more than happy to ruin your career.

    Advice to Management

    Throw those accountant out of cabins and let some professionally qualified employees to lead the team.
