    Pros

    1. Bus transport
    2. Regular training classes
    3. If you are a fresher, you can learn a lot. If you're a manager, you can spend your remaining career here

    Cons

    1. If you are a middle person (3-8 years experience), you're doomed. Your career will never take off. You will be doing some junk work with no proper onsite opportunities.
    2. Notice period is 90 days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the notice period to 2 months or even lesser

    Good working culture and company policies
    Good infrastructure
    onsite opportunities being service industry

    Not good projects at pune location, so that you will not learn more technical
    Politics not all projects have onsite opportunities and very less onsite opportunities at pune

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just don't keep people in the company because they have spent more years in the company or they were in the company from 15 to 20 years.. some people should not take salary even of fresher's salary also..
    Take harsh decisions to eliminate such kind of people.

    Heavy work load with unrealistic deadlines which forced to work on weekends
    Very low pay scale
