    Good number of projects with large customers. Flexible work timings. 45 hours working a week is not mandatory. Flexible dress code. Casual dress code on Monday and Friday. Good campus in hi tech city branch.

    Some managers who think managing a project/ team means torturing them should be educated on how to treat with team members when giving developmental feedback.

    Pros

    Freshers would get to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    Not enough projects to get work immediately and also getting an implementation project is very tough.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying to refine policies, refine the 7 - 15 years experienced people since they are the sole reason why young and dynamic work culture is lost and associates are not encouraged. Over a period of time we are working only to save their jobs, wherein the accolades and appreciation is taken by them and thereby employees are moving to other opportunities.
