    Pros

    Work is not stressful. Culture is awesome where you can have lot of fun activities and culturals like in college.for experienced persons its a perfect place since salary and work stress il be like what they expects.

    Cons

    Managers needs to be supportive.you might be switched to different process and teams frequently.salary is very less for fresher's even though its a MNC and is the main reason many are thinking of job shift.some teams might have very less opportunity to learn

    Advice to Management

    Give broad exposures to employees since many Dnt Hve idea of what is the nature of work they are doing and what kind of opportunities they are having beyond this company and where they have to improve themselves.
