    Pros

    Exposure to many things technical and managerial.
    You can take the lead if you are willing to use politics, some extra time and hard work.

    Cons

    Management is highly incompetent.
    HR and leadership not interested in paying to keep resources
    No concern for employees.
    Frequent shift of technologies.
    Focus is on firmware and hardware. Software is seen as a refuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and pockets. Stop recruiting 6 freshers to replace 6 good years of experience.
    Let remove this old dabba peoples and place young an energetic people in place.in they can work effectively.
