    Immediate Superiors are good, Colleagues maintain a healthy relationship, Work Policies seem to be fine

    Cons

    Less Pay-Growth, Regional and National Heads are never serious about our choices and views,
    Less pay scales to the entry level with dis proportionate amounts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pay scale increase with Target to Salary ratio.
    If target growth is 30% and if an individual achieves that then he should be given 30% growth in salary....simple !!!
