    Pros

    Your working hours is completely based on your client. If your client says you have to come in fixed hours, you don't have a choice.

    Cons

    Management functions like a govt office. The senior management expect to be called 'Sir', favoritism is evident. Opportunities are given only to Pets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Groom skill, the organisation will reach it's goals faster. If you groom people who always say 'Yes Sir' then when'll the overall skill develop?

    Doesn't Recommend
