    Pros

    Good work life balance, Fair pay, Good management especially mid managers are fairer compared to other companies i have worked with they motivate and understand off-course there may be 1 or 2 off but my project lead rocks. Fair number of leaves, free food, free AC cabs anytime to & from work which is one of the best facility offered.

    Cons

    Career Opportunities are limited including anyone seeking onshore, Compensation structure is not transparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek more career opportunities and encourage internal job rotations.

    Pros

    Free ac cabs
    Free lunch and diner

    Cons

    A lot of politics
    Very old technologies being used
    Not so welcoming company environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's my advice to management is....that's already somehow reached them... Company's not so good working environment is due to a lot of old people keeping it over there... And by old means very old.... More than 5 years in the company... People who don't contribute any more and are three just to take royalty of those 5-10 years and who makes it difficult and not so welcoming of newer folks.

    Management has already started identifying such people ans handle them nicely.... Hope things will be good there soon.
