    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.

    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....
