    Pros

    Less working hours (8 hours).

    Worst Managers. Some Managers are illiterate (don't understand anything) - they try to impose things on employees and extreme micromanagement is done.Useless reasons are given while the appraisal meetings - worst hikes are given. Promotion hikes are pathetic.Growth is very slow and there are specific issues with the Knowledge Center in terms of compensation structuring and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire well educated Managers who atleast know how to manage a team.
