    3. Good personal/professional life balance. Sometimes there is a work pressure, but its fine.
    4. Good company to start for freshers.

    Cons

    1. Provide very less package to employee compare to their competitors.
    2. Less onsite opportunity.
    3. Employee with 5-6yrs of exp. are still Software Engineer.
    4. There are very few projects which allow to work from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from competitors and revise employee salary who are under paid. 2 month notice period is too much. Under paid employee will loose good opportunity.
