    Pros

    Only Pay is good.

    Cons

    Most of the times people here work like dumb through out the mid nights and sometimes till next day morning also without sleep. Debugging the deployment errors throughout the night. No Proper Sprint planning from product and project management teams. And guess what most of the deployment happens just before on weekends thursday/fridays. For sure issues will come and your weekends are gone just like normal working days. On top of that all latest deployed app team members will be scolded irrespective of mistake at their end or not.
