    Pros

    Nothing. There is NOTHING good to mention about. Not even 1.

    Cons

    You will have to serve here for 6 months to get confirmation while others are 3. After confirmation you will either have to sign a bond contract for 2 or 3 years and if you quit you will have to pay 6 months salary,or serving notice after confirmation is 2 to 3 months. They want to make sure that you cannot leave or at least have to suffering after leave. The company have a super high turn over rate and they make you have to responsible for that. Moreover, if you are pregnant, they will never confirm you, and will always find trouble at work wuth you to make you cannot take it anymore and quit.
