    Pros

    - Short term projects that ensure that you get to work on different technologies.
     - Open culture.

    Cons

    - Only work, No Life.
     - All the projects are estimated as per aggressive timelines, due to which people are always under pressure, even if the requirements are simple and straightforward.
     - Management resort to blame the pawn if the timelines are not met. In fact the management decide beforehand who would be the pawn.
     - On paper the performance of an individual is measured in terms of the recognitions received. However this is just a gimmick, if you are not in the good books of your project manager then even the best recognition wont save you EVER.
     - The Experience Technology or the XT domain is handled by The Three Musketeers who call the shots by the roll of dice. If they don't like you then nothing can save you.
     - Being in the good books of the leadership can give you promotions even you can't write a line of code. This is not an exaggeration as I have worked with people who have been promoted as Sr Managers even though they can't write a simple Grunt task.
     - There is no set parameter that can define where you stand and how you perform,
     - Your career will be on the right path only if you know how to keep the right people happy and by showing off your skills publicly.
     - There is no assurance whether the project one has been allocated to would be based on the technology or framework one is aspiring for. The candidates are given false hopes just to fill up the needs of the current project and then their aspirations are thrown out of the window. This has lead to rising attrition however the policy has not changed.
     - Priorities are only set for the completion of the project and zero consideration is given to the employee's personal life no matter how critical they are. Employee's face regular burn outs however they are not considered unless they resign.
     - The core values the company swears by is only good on paper and is used as a term to only impress the new hire during induction. Once you're allocated to a project, the core values are only used as bold words by the people and they do not exist in practice.

    Advice to Management

    - Get your act together. Start giving the employees their due credit.
     - Project Managers and the Leadership "brotherhood" should realise that by discrediting a candidate just because they don't get along with you does not mean that they did not perform well. Start taking ownership and complete responsibility of your actions instead of finding a pawn to blame.
     - A specific and strict criteria should be set in terms of employee recognitions, as employees get their due recognitions however the true analysis is dependent on the secret feedback mails given by the project management and leadership.
