    Pros

    flexibility- most employees work from home at least once per week and many work from home much more than that. Managers allow for doctors appointments or attending an event without much concern. As long as the work gets done, when and where it gets done is not an issue.

    Cons

    At times the direction or a 1-2 year plan is not clear

    Advice to Management

    Be present- manage by walking around and talking to us. We want to see and talk to the executives.

    Pros

    1. Good work life balance
    2. Most of the managers are friendly, and no internal politics.
    3. Flexible office timings, work from home option and good hikes.

    Cons

    1. Testing roles are more of a repetition most of the time and not great to build a good career, and you get nowhere in learning new stuff even though testing roles require more effort.
    2. Less or no opportunities to learn latest technology
    3. More work load on testers, and they end up having less time for automation most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing as such

    Pros

    Talented seniors
    Approachable colleagues
    Good recognition for job well done, especially freshers
    Competitive salaries for freshers and consistent hikes thereafter
    Great place to learn new n/w technologies if you have a supportive manager

    Cons

    May not get opportunity to work in leading technologies based on which team you are in
    HR policies may sometimes seem dominating and interfering with decisions which are purely technical
    Awards/recognition may sometimes be partial and to curb attrition and internal politics when there are others more deserving

    Advice to Management

    Provide more room for switching between roles -dev to testing and vice versa
    Give more opportunities for technical learning by better training and not just rely on in-house knowledge
