    Pros

    Still very stable job, Initial package is significantly higher than most IT companies. Works at very basic level, lot can be learnt about DBMS, Application servers and Web Technologies.
    Most of the co-workers are helpful and affectionate. Locations are very good for IT. Generally no shift, all NI Act holidays are available.

    Cons

    Tools and frameworks are not used enough, this can make some works tedious at times. Top management is not much familiar with latest trends in technology, so not always ready accept new technologies.
    Part of users are very little accustomed to computers, this may cause serious trouble at times while designing.
    Changes keep coming regularly in requirement of deployed projects, So it gradually becomes difficult to maintain.
    IT has a very limited scope of growth, also increment in pay is not much. So despite being on high side on early days, package becomes average after few years.
     Job priority is not always clear.
