    Pros

    Joined as a fresher from CDAC ACTS having a bond of 1.5 LPA for a period of 3 years without giving freshers training.

    Cons

    most of the senior employee are getting less take home salary compared with their previous salary
    Managment will respond only if you resign
    worst HR policies
    if you CTC is 4.0 take home will be 20 kpm.
    if req is other location they will force you to relocate.
    if client requires is in testing they will insist you to work on testing even through you are interested in development.
    hardly 50 % of variable pay will get.
    No values they are here to make money.
     they won't bother about employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider the concerns of the employee
    change the HR policies.
