    - Low - Medium Pay. It used to be a pay master at one time.
    - Employee Feedback Mechanism is not very effective.
    - Focus shifted to services than product development
    - Newer mid management recruits do not have product mindset

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Should diversify in management consulting and other businesses rather than just services
