    It's a great learning opportunity for Freshers to start with your professional career.
    Technical knowledge, Microsoft Certification add on to our personal strengths.

    Pros

    You will get to learn a lot of technology. You can become a jack of all.

    Cons

    Deep knowledge of core concepts seems missing and blindly follows management decision without actually telling benefits of what they are doing and agreeing with most of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not think whatever you do is always right.

    Pros

    You will learn lot of stuff.... Very good in this aspect

    Cons

    1. company (sorry 1 person)...others are just dancing doll.
    2. I don't think that bunch at the top management is not self aware. They are best at their own way. But simply they don't want to listen or realize
    3. All decision are reverse engineered. I mean decision will be taken out of sleep and some bookish logic will be given and you will be asked for opinion with one choice...mean you need to agree
    4. Sometimes not all time decision out of book will be implemented for the period until next book suggest something else
    5. You as a employee has to think like management ( one person) ...if not you will be treated like a worm
    6. Top management....directors (s) just by title is bunch of people just say and say yes to the top one...most of the meeting are just yes, you are good kind of things
    7. Employee...I heard so many times that management saying they don't want any one more than two years
    8. No self respect or self esteem

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This post will have a disapproval. But if you just think you are aanother human you will realise most of the comments are unbiased.

    May be you can change the company by start listening to all levels of employee...I mean you should refrain from just hearing...when you listen don't have your brain tinned to defensive model

    Do you share a personal connection with your employee?

    Employee are human. Money and your gyan is just not enough

    If you still want to validate this...start a survey with alumni with anonymous feedback...
