    Good Company to get a start

    Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsThey offer a good package to start with. Hiring process is not difficult.
    Employee oriented company .
    No hidden policies which lower the package after joining
    Food in a govt. subsidized rates.

    ConsSlow Growth, Movements are difficult
    Dress code issue
    Transport is super pathetic. You need to board a bus or tempo traveller from the defined pick up points(not from home). No cabs provided in pick up for Noida location

    Advice to Senior ManagementVery slow growth and employee can't choose his work of interest or location.
    They will put you in a project and expect you to work till you resign in same domain

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