    Pros

    1. Shift flexibility
    2. Free Medical tests conducted by the faculty

    Cons

    1. Management has gone from bad to worse
    2. Senior talented people are being forced to leave
    3. No flexibility in projects
    4. Many senior people are complacent and aggressive to change
    5. No respect for deadlines
    6. No work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    The employees are the cornerstone of the company. The way so many employees have been forcefully asked to leave has definitely tarnished the image. Always be truthful and honest to the employees.

    Pros

    Onsite opportunities
    Nobody else is ready to work so if you r willing you can learn

    Cons

    Poor pay
    Be the manager's pet for growth
    No work-life balance
    Inferior peers, put pressure on some

    Advice to Management

    Pay up...
    Lobbying only makes the root-level employees suffer
    Lay-off the useless managers instead of freshers.

    Pros

    Very Bad hr policies. If you want to suicide then only join.

    Cons

    really big problem is HR. They are treating people like slaves.
    don't sign any bond/agreement with this company. they will ruin your life.
    I have signed one bond for some training. that band is of 1 year. but in that one year they have not given me training and project.
    and after completing 1.5 years after this bond also they didn't give me my exp certificate.
    I needed to pay whole bond amount for my letters.
    So my advice to all of you dont join this company.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve your HR policies. and dont treat your employee as your slaves. As you are also an employee.
