    Pros

    1) Good Pay Master
    2) Work Life Balance
    3) Good Campus
    4) Updated technology

    Cons

    Really Poor management at Manesar, India. Very egoistic people to work with. Treat others very badly.

    The most inactive HR I have seen so far. HR don't bother how the employee is being treated after getting into the role.

    Management can anytime decide to change your profile, your career line without discussing or even informing just because they think it's not important and in any case, if you have discussed your points with management then be prepared to leave the organisation.

    No forecasting ability in management - Hired excessive talent at project time and then ask them to leave for showing cost efficiency after project completion.

    Advice to Management

    Shuffle the upper most position in India, this will help in retaining talent and higher employee satisfaction.

    Work life balance, great management. Willing to take risks and adjust as need to be successful. If you can make a solid business case you will get resources to support. Great teamwork and collaboration.
