    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.

    Pros

    The high employment bar means you will work with wonderful people. There is no dearth of good work either.
    If you start enjoying this atmosphere, you will grow and grow.

    Cons

    Mostly hectic schedule. Relentless high standards. Keep pace with everyone else or you would not see yourself grow. As a developer not just development skills but leadership skills matter as well.

    You are expected to work on random services which are not documented well.

    Reduce the work pressure from employees.
