    Pros

    1. Salary as per industry standard
    2. Big projects to work on

    Cons

    1. No particular training for beginners
    2. Leadership at managerial level is not good in some of the branches

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. More opportunities to employees to engage in technical activities or cultural activities.
    2. Taking reviews from client from time to time and act on that.
    3. Not to follow a procedure or do things just for the sake of doing it.
