    Pros

    1. Open door policy
    2. Geekathon & Geekpreneur programs where any employee can showcase their new skills. A platform to know our skills apart from day to day work.
    3. Teams are structured and empowered for project executions.

    Cons

    1. Open door policy is what I think. I see that as a strength and weakness.
