    Pros

    friendly work culture with an average employee age of 24
    Different job opportunities within the organization
    You get to learn new technologies and deal with patents a lot.

    Cons

    work allocation is uneven between employees
    pay is low for the type of work done in a niche domain
    the work is fragmented and at times there is no continuity of the project. As an associate you may just handle some part of the project midway and then wait until client responds back.

    Pros

    - Workplace is nice
    - Most of the people are young college graduates
    - Good for a "just out of college" person
    - Work is not tedious
    - This place will train you good if you are looking for a career in consultancy

    Cons

    - Salary seems to less, when compared to the amount of work put in
    - Growth is slow
    - The annual increment in salary is less
    - Niche domain
    - Timings are a major issue, staying late is very common

    Advice to Management

    salary packages should be revised in way that adjustment to inflation is reflected. The bonus should depend on performance alone.

    Pros

    great peer culture. client facing projects. direct interaction with clients

    Cons

    the nature of the work is repetitive. Personal growth is rewarding but takes a lot of time to reach the next stage.

    Advice to Management

    Since the team is small, I think more focus should be on the well-being of the employees. There is lack of such an understanding.

    Pros

    Chilled out life, can easily get time for other important things in life if not staffed in a project with critical deadlines

    Cons

    No career direction, senior management clueless, proper guidance not given at various stages of an employee's career, no scope if you want to switch jobs, inefficient resource management

    Advice to Management

    Always try to ensure that the workload is shared among ALL the full-time employees, not a few selected unfortunate ones
