    Pros

    Work culture very good, no limitations for work. Can learn anything and do.

    Cons

    Frequent Layoffs, communication gap between management and employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay proper attention to the reason why an employee is leaving, not every time they leave for higher salary. Few things you can stop just by listening to employee and address his concerns. If you dont have time to listen, employee doesnt feel to stay.
