    Pros

    There are some good people brought in to keep a ship with a lot of holes in it afloat. Very hard working vibes, but the "feeling" can only carry you so long where most people don't last longer than 2 years and move on to bigger and better things.

    Cons

    Many under qualified people leading teams, especially the IT department, where they have no game plan and work is more about fixing fires than growing the company.

    Advice to Management

    Do not continue to keep the "play with the hand your dealt with" attitude and hire some quality leadership and staff. Replace the heads of the IT department.

    Pros

    Initially they are good with the interview
    (there is only one round with manager and you will be told to write a blog with certain word limit )

    they promise good things in the interviews

    Cons

    the place is full of politics.
    worse management, few QCA(as they call it here) quality control anchors are weird, judge you from the very first day at office.
    editors are okayish, but they are very rude at times
    seniors are not helpful. had a tough time because of few seniors and team leads.
    Moreover it is a meagre company, not much growth,
    THEY ARE NOT AT ALL PROFESSIONAL

    Advice to Management

    NOT AT ALL EMPLOYEE FRIENDLY, NO ETHICS,
