    Good opportunity to learn while people management is not good.

    Pros

    Great place to learn. Great people to work with initially. Work is also file. Personal growth is ok if manager has got good perception about you else you will remain at the same level.

    Cons

    Low salary. You can not take more than one week off in some teams which is ridiculous considering people save their leaves for one time in a year. Escalation mechanisms are bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are great companies to work with and they are doing really good. You need to learn from them if you need to grow. Other wise people will keep quitting. And work life balance does not mean work life harmony.
