    Pros

    Good opportunities for growth, a lot of technology to work with

    Cons

    The processes are not well structured and there are no proper channels for interaction between sales support and engineering. A little haphazard I would say. The HR has a long way to go and needs a lot of improvements needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Facilities to the employees should be improved be it office space, recreation, cafeteria among others.
