    Pros

    No Pros as of with my experience

    Cons

    poor hr policy, Poor admin and infrastructure facilities ,lack of responsibility towards employee at regional level offices ,labour exploitation by superiors at regional offices ,low hikes.,mainly offices are very far from cities which are not supported by company transport too, lack of food faclities at the company premises that are outskirts as well .old way of working style .,very poor control of management across offices.finally a typical indian government office type cultue across the company.moreover saturday offices are present which is making very job very hectic to travel such long distances for 6 days a week and finally managers are very selfish they will blame for faults and take respect for success from higher people without even acknowledging team members.

    Advice to Management

    please have a discussion and feedback with the employees genuinely you wil get to know the exact reason why employees are leaving aditya within very short time.
