    You can enhance your skill set by learning various technologies. Communication between the remote employees is very nice. You get full support when you are stuck at some point in accomplishing your project.

    Though company has 2 PA cycle a year the pay scale is less and management does not understand the value of senior employees.

    Retain your senior employees rather than depending on new hire always.
