    A learning and rewarding experience, learnt a lot, great workplace

    Quality Engineer (Former Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsA great workplace with colleagues whom you'll have a good relationship with. Good ingrained systems and processes with plenty of room for your own contributions, exposure to many areas of a manufacturing business

    ConsInitially some tasks may seem overwhelming, take time to learn and familiarize. Keep an open mind, interact, try to get people's cooperation, try not to get in their way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more flexible schedules, better shuttle services in afternoon for employees who need to leave earlier or need to go out for work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast-paced environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood compensation rate, fun in-house activities like field day, free ice cream etc. Good location far away from city traffic. In-house cafeteria with a good daily selection if you don't feel like traveling out for lunch.

    ConsNo furthering of education, reliant heavily upon contractors who get no benefits and are constantly reminded that they are expendable. Different policies between departments that conflict with company-wide policies make it hard to know what is acceptable and what isn't. Constant restructuring and a high turnover rate, even with full-time permanent employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
