    Pros

    SVAM is not an office, it is my second home. Nothing can be better if you feel the homely feeling atmosphere in your workplace.

    1. It really maintains the open door policy, so you can raise you hand up anytime with any concern.
    2. The hierarchy is just a name, it actually maintains the open policy among all the employees. Top leaders are really friendly.
    3. HR is always there to help you for any concern.
    4. Nice clients across the USA, great opportunity to explore and learn. The sales team is one of the best among the consultancies, most of them have almost two decades into the business.
    5. The environment is ecstatic.

    Cons

    As the company is growing , they can think about a bigger office place.

    Advice to Management
