    Pros

    Work life Balance and lots of leaves. Flexible office timings and employee friendly organisation.

    Cons

    If you are very much qualified, you may even report to some less qualified person just because he is older to you in the system. Growth is steady and less compared to people working with other Manufacturing companies. Learning curve is less. Very much kind of a BPO setup.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve the quality of work for the engineers you hire. Please improve the transparency while hiring the candidate about the JD and positions.
