    Pros

    The salary and other benefits are much bigger as compared to any other government agency.

    Pros

    I work as a part of a small, sharp, and ambitious team supporting and advising clients on various aspects of their marketing and branding strategies. I love the variety of opportunities the job offers and the tangible impact your every decision makes.

    Cons

    I can no longer indulge in day dreaming. Days tend to run away from you. The pressure of having your every action count can be daunting. Then again, I am a glass-full kind of person. If your glass is half empty, this is probably not the right place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
