    Pros

    Supportive management, even in case of layoffs
    Lot to work and learn

    Cons

    Rely on their past glory
    Low class pay scale
    Lot of other departmental non-relevant technical works
    Poor Management structure based on HR consultancy survey company, the finance and accounting had mismanaged M N Dastur for the number of employees it was employing from 2013 onwards, since as per the report, the company was advised to reduce it's manpower
    Unstructured Incentives
    Poor office infrastructure and still don't have their own asset
    recently laid off 83 people (but given financial support) in chennai and about 50 people in kolkata
    Bhubaneswar office is just clinging on, but no layoffs, since only 4 staff are reporting and it's not departmentalized yet.

    Advice to Management

    Plan for getting orders before hiring employees, because, even if the pay scale is low, the company can't afford to pay employees.

    Pros

    Excellent learning experience. Had access to good data bank. Library was awesome. Employee friendly environment.

    Cons

    Salary was moderate. No uniform benchmark used across the company for promotion. Sharing of responsibility and job ownership was highly eccentric. Foulplay noted in respect of reward.

    Advice to Management

    Should have homogenious attitude across the disciplines. Should keep watchful eyes towards the good performers.

    Pros

    Company providing best services to the employees, work culture is good

    Cons

    As I think Management need to improve their strategic in some of cases. We have found that out of 100%.....50% of them working for their company....25% of them partly involved with their work and balance 25% of the employee sitting idle....

    Advice to Management

    I dont want to give the advice to the Sr. Management as they are already thinking for betterment of our company
