    Pros

    I worked with a fun team of positive people and friendly customers
    It was my first job and the responsibilities given to me were decent

    Cons

    Learning in terms of technology is poor, not the best place to start your career
    You could end up in a project which makes your work experience irrelevant in the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on getting more types of projects, not just more projects of the same type

    Pros

    transport, food, internet access and on time exit. Cross functional skills apart from your core design and IT skills.

    Cons

    Due to growth phase, those who works, continue to work too hard. But, most of them don't have work.
    Lot of top management are from Maharashtra and Andhra. So, the recruitment and career progression are only for those from these state origin. Groupism and regionalism is clearly visible.
    Germans most of the time don't have clue on local politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify hard working employees and recognize them. Structure the growth and compete parallel to IT companies. Bring transparency as a practice. Don't print slides in the name of transparency.
