    Give more importance to experienced emp. Please don't wait for emp to complain/ask for their benefits. Think about employees promotions and other benefits they need. 2 years employment agreement is not acceptable tor experienced employee, please think about it.

    I worked at Softway full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work Environment is good, everyone will help you if you are a fresher. For fresher only this can be better.

    Cons

    Management is worst. No Projects. HR Policies are worst. To less salary. You will be here only because of bond which they will ask you to sign at the time of joining. Work timing and short deadline projects You will feel like you came to school again.

    Advice to Management

    Get some projects for developers Give salary as per market standard. Please don't ask anybody to sign any kind of bond. Don't show off everything.
