    Pros

    work-life balance is still quite good though pressure has increased slightly over last one year enough time available if you want to work on sth

    stone-age technologies used (atleast on the application side) no clarity on future roadmap or projects don't see much growth

    even if things are not going well, be open to your own employees.
