    Pros

    Most of the colleagues are nice Transport from near your place only in the morning as working timing starts too early, 7:30am

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to market rate. Company always squeezing for profit margins. Location is far. Long working hours - 44 hours per week Management is not appreciative and can be quite rude Motorcycles need to park outside and long walk to office. Toilets are not conducive.
