    Pros

    A market compatible salary and job security

    Cons

    pace of work is really very slow, there is no grooming and no such opportunities to move forward based on your performance. Company's focus is only on production and it does not pay any heed to employee satisfaction, employee motivation, job enrichment or providing the basic necessities of life. Necessities are considered a luxury.
