    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Essex Lake full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Handsome starting salary to get people on board (Look out for the 1st point in the cons)
    - Good opportunities to go abroad (No extra salary is provided there)

    Cons

    - A lot of firing happening lately, average stay for a person is not even 1 year in most of the teams
    - Not many projects on board, most of the people are looking out for jobs
    - Just fancy JDs, there is zero analytics in the company except dashboarding
    PS - Most of the good reviews have been updated by the HR team. Some of the bad reviews got deleted too, no idea how did that happen!

    Advice to Management

    You don't need to advise management about anything as they don't care about it.
