BYOC & BYOD option helps resolve issues faster.

ConsNo scope for internal growth.
Yearly compensation is really bad and not upto expectation at all.
Too lazy management to listen to employees.
No process for internal communication.
Workplace has become more like a Services company style, with no space to move, walk or discuss without bumping into others.
Motivation factor is at its worst.
Employee comments goes into deaf ears of Management.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up free forums for employees to discuss.
Improve Employees Motivation.
Give everyone a fair chance
