    Pros

    Good for understanding MNC work culture and basic project ideas.

    Cons

    Extremely bad management. Management never consider your work ,they will consider how much you work only for "them" not company or project. Non supporting HR.Even HR never follows basic policies about employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please do the work for which company paying you big fat salary. If you can't work professional then at least try to be normal human who have brain to think "logically".
