    ProsWork-life balance, amazing facilities, smart and humble people around you, atleast in the dev teams. A lot to learn in the initial stages of your career.

    ConsFrequent re-organization, perks vary depending on the business unit unfortunately. If you are enthusiastic, you will be challenged, if you just want to get on with moderate workload, this is also possible. So, it is upto us to take on heavy workload or not.
