    Pros

    Exposure to latest tools & technologies

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy in the development process. It takes too long to get things done. And also much of the technology is antique java and Spring. Skill set level of most of QA/QE are way below average. Salaries are 20-25% less compare to other similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions and Salary increments should be based on performance and not based on seniority level.

    Pedigree - legacy cyber pure play - value company! Still a deeply technical - kind of geeky company despite the Dell ownership

    Incorporate change into ongoing strategy — invest in your people — incentivize honestly. Strategize for a longer time horizon.
