    Pros

    Work life balance. That too depends on your project management.

    Cons

    1.Most miser company to work with ever
    2.Never spend a dime on employees for anything even for serious matters such as women safety. All initiatives are a mere hogwash
    3.Salary among the least in the industry
    4.No accountability at mid and senior mgmt levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop all half hearted initiatives taken to only show the world how much you care and learn to empathise and improve facilities provided to employees.

    Pros

    If you get a good project and prove yourself , sky is the limit here. You will have more freedom than many bigger companies and will understand the big picture.

    Cons

    If you do not get into a right project/ take up some crappy support/ testing project, life becomes hell. No one will stand by you in such a situation. They won't release you or they will at the cost of your appraisal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job. Resource Management Group should listen to the employees more.
