    Pros

    Good work atmosphere, a professionally managed company. Ethical , job security

    Cons

    Very very poor salary. Much below the market average. The top management dont think so and they are doing a great service to the nation by giving good talents to the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wont change and they dont want too. The company has lost all talented people and only bottom group is left over.

    Management is not aware and they act as if they dont know. Completely cut off from the reality in terms of salary
