    Bangalore (India)

    ProsGreat teams, some efficient and hard working, understanding managers. Interesting domain work and knowledge of some of the senior resources.

    ConsSome managers who have been there in the company for like 10-12 years are good for nothing, don't understand the work ethic and tend to favor their region employees.
