    Good learning place for new graduates. A lot of hard working people here. They prompt pretty fast. So if you can stay, you might be able to get promotion quickly.

    High work load and less pay. You will be asked to start working on projects with minimum training. Many times you will have over 3 projects at same time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest on facilities and employees to keep businesses moving.

    Take care of your employees, don't just hire, train and then force people to leave. Be generous and fair on people's bonus.
