    Pros

    Scale makes problems challenging.
    Improves meticulousness.
    Smart peoples are around.

    Cons

    Bad if you believe in action speaks louder. You have to be literally louder to be heard.
    Work should be your passion in life. Never try to find out passion in workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check cultural fitness while hiring.

    Pros

    You learn a lot within a very short time span. Every employee is considered as a leader. Smart co-workers, awesome technologies and much more

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. There are lot of politics involved behind the scenes. You have to take care of your life otherwise the company just use yourself. Beware!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do think that employees have life too. You are losing smart & hard working employees at a faster rate and this is not good for the company.

    SDET is a development role, you expect us to write strong code and have absolute development skills. But managers are simply making SDET's to do manual QA, product releases for a very long time. Managers should understand this and should put right people in right roles.

    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Chennai

    Pros

    All is well. Its high time the company also starts focusing on providing training to people who wants to internally grow than just expecting people to learn everything on their own.

    Cons

    Work life balance. Learn to work on week days and week ends.
    Cut throat performance management - There is hardly any space for mediocre performance. This leads to lot of attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When making too many changes in management, take an informed decision. That is where other big companies like GE and HSBC wins.
