    Friday food is the only thing i can think of.

    Cons

    where do I start!!
    ->If you get promoted, you need to keep in mind that you might get fired soon.
    ->COOL awards are not cool. Only certain region fellows get the award multiple times. They are hacked.
    -> If you being to Asian community where you speak their language, then you survive. No one you can survive if that is not the case.

    Advice to Management

    1. Focus more on low level retention in operations domain so that attrition at those levels can be minimized by shadow staffing project analytics people with senior analytics people so that they can see some career prospects.
    2. Put high performing employees on a fast track program so that they can grow much faster as those employees would be loyal to the organization as well as simultaneously learn and grow his/her career too
